Mida 2.3 Beta – FireMonkey StyleBook !!

In the coming days will be available for a hundred beta testers, chosen at random from our customers, the new beta version of Mida 2.3 with support for StyleBook.

Remember… that FireMonkey color management is different. You can not specify a color directly to a TLabel (Font.Color).

Mida 2.3 automatically converts, for TLabel and the main components , color, size, font family, making the conversion VCL To FireMonkey, more and more realistic.

The FireMonkey Style are created automatically, in an optimized way.

Mida 2.0 – Source code update and new Official Site


Great news, finally the new Mida 2.0 is available.

Mida 1.x has been incredible for the excellent conversion of visual components from VCL to FireMonkey, the work was important, but thanks to your many suggestions and comments we have reached an excellent result.

In Mida 2.0 the target is to update the source code is not compatible with FireMonkey.
We have already converted thousands of lines of source and we noticed that the incompatibilities with the new framework are many.

For example none of these lines of code runs on FireMonkey :

01.Label1.Caption := ...
02.Label1.Font.Style := [fsBold];
03.Label1.Font.Style := [fsUnderline];
04.CheckBox.Checked := True;
06.Screen.Cursor := crDefault;
10.if Key = VK_F1 then

and more more more….

Mida 2.0 convert all this code with a single click !

Any time the source are updated using a new library ( _Mida_FM_Lib.pas ) where the new functions reside. The source files using procedures vcl only are update to use this new library. If the user desires can change that library,of course.
I’ve had some requests to add support for a visual component a little particular : TLabeledEdit, is an TEdit and a TLabel in a single component.

Mida 2.0 supports TLabeledEdit, the original name remains at the new Edit, and a new TLabel component is created with a name similar to the original TLabeledEdit.
