DXperience and Delphi Prism

Back at PDC2008, Embarcadero announced Delphi Prism, which is essentially Delphi in Visual Studio. You can read more about it here.

Jim McKeeth grabbed me at the show, and asked me about what DevExpress were going to be doing for Delphi Prism. And he videoed it for posterity too so I couldn't weasel out of anything I said. You can watch it here.

The story is that we shall be supporting Delphi Prism with DXperience and we're evaluating what we need to do to make that work. As it happens: not very much -- it installs just fine and, on first blush, seems to work just fine. There are more exhaustive tests to complete, obviously.

In other, related, news, I shall be talking at Embarcadero's CodeRage III online conference (I've been given the Monday, December 1 at 11:15am-12:15pm PT slot, an amuse-bouche before lunch). I'll be talking about using DXperience in Delphi Prism, tips and tricks. The session is pre-recorded, hence, for the next couple of days, I'll be using most of our controls in Prism and recording my findings with Camtasia for the session. So far, my conclusion is: Delphi 8 this certainly isn't.

Stay tuned.

Rick --

Yes, Delphi Prism integrates into Visual Studio 2008, and thus gives you full designer support for all the .Net 3.5 stuff.
