Converting your VCL applications to FireMonkey – Mathias Bubach

This month we will look at the challenges when trying to convert your existing VCL application to FireMonkey. In the process we will examine a tool called Mida to convert VCL apps to FireMonkey and see some of the challenges when doing so. This talk will cover regular VCL controls as well as data-aware controls and the necessary live bindings in FireMonkey (e.g. converting a TDBLookupComboBox). We will see how the FireMonkey control events differ from their VCL counterparts and how to cope with.
