A minor update to XE Plus Pack is currently being tested.
This update includes the following:
- [Update] Adds the Execute and Execute as Admin commands to the File Actions Project Manager context menu. Handy for those batch files included in your projects.
- [NEW] Ability to save the Options treeview state between executions and IDE sessions. By default, only the Environment node is expanded.
- Some internal tweaks to better support upcoming features.
When the trial is ready for downloading, you’ll hear it first!
What’s coming up
Export / Import and Reset IDE Options
Looking something like this at the moment (screens may change before release).
If you like to have you options exportable, please contact me.
The exporting isn’t limited to just registry settings, but can include specific files (or file sets) as well as entire folders. Files and Folders can be dynamically located.
I’m getting very close to releasing a new product called XE Plus Pack.
This product will include a number of experts that I’ve been personally using. Some for a number of years and some very new. Ultimately the idea behind the XE Plus Pack is that it will continue to grow over time to include new Experts, Property Editors, Component Editors and Utilities for newer IDE versions.
The first release will cover Delphi XE.
While the sneak peak shows five experts listed in the new JED Software Third Party Options section, only four will be released initially. The fifth (Bookmark Guide) still needs to bake a little bit before being released.
XE Plus Pack will sell for 40 Euros (50% discount for JSDialog Pack users and Free for current Visual Forms users). Yearly renewal of 20 Euros applies for updates and to receive newer experts. Users will have the opportunity to vote for which expert gets released next (I have an extensive list earmarked for the product).
Initially XE Plus Pack will include:
- Visual Forms
- Activate Project
- File Actions
- Code Template Wizard
Upcoming items that will be included with this product:
- (Expert) Bookmark Guide
- (Expert/Utility) Revamped Delphi Configuration Manager
- (Utility) Enhanced Configuration Launcher
- (Utility/Expert) Extensive IDE Options import/export application that can run from removable media
- (Utility) Client DataSet Editor – developed while creating QC Plus
NOTE: Some utilities won’t be limited to Delphi XE IDE versions.
I will be doing some videos to introduce the collection and specific functionality.
