Debug logging in FireMonkey – CodeRage XI Lightning Talks

During CodeRage XI I had a couple of Lightning Talks broadcast on a subject I’ve been intending to write up for quite a long time, but haven’t quite managed to achieve: how to emit debug log messages on the various FireMonkey platforms.

I made a 10 minute video for Delphi and one for C++ looking at all the target platforms, Win32/Win64, OS X/macOS, Android and iOS, showing the logging options and then looking at how to view log output.

Unfortunately I got a bit caught up in some work and didn’t publicise this ahead of the conference, so I think not many people were aware of them.

If you want to see the short videos after the fact, you can see them below or on YouTube:

You can look at the supporting (short) slideshows on SlideShare (ignore the funky bullet point symbols – something was awry in the slide template when I made the slides):
