An Interview with Ray Konopka

Ray KonopkaIn this episode we talked to Ray Konopka during Delphi Week. Topics include the upcoming Delphi Developer Days, some of his work for DisneyRaize Software, including his new Radiant Shapes, Windows 10 and HoloLense (even though I wish they would rename it).

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Delphi Developer Days in Chicago, but if you can’t meet me there, they have some other locations too.

Common code samples:

Delphi / Object Pascal

// Create Field Definitions
FDMemTable1.FieldDefs.Add('ID', ftInteger, 0, False);
FDMemTable1.FieldDefs.Add('Name', ftString, 20, False);

// Append data
FDMemTable1.AppendRecord([1, 'Jim']);

// Load from another DataSet
FDMemTable1.CopyDataSet(DataSet1, [coStructure, coRestart, coAppend]);


// Create Field Definitions
FDMemTable1->FieldDefs->Add("ID", ftInteger, 0, False);
FDMemTable1->FieldDefs->Add("Name", ftString, 20, False);

// Append Data
FDMemTable1->FieldByName("ID")->AsInteger = 1;
FDMemTable1->FieldByName("Name")->AsString = "Jim";

// Load from another DataSet
FDMemTable1->CopyDataSet(DataSet1, TFDCopyDataSetOptions() << coStructure << coRestart << coAppend);
