Prism Q&A Flashcard:

 A FAQ from our Prism FAQ Page



How close is the syntax for Delphi for Win32 and Delphi Prism?


Pretty close. You will definately be comfortable but there are differences. Delphi Prism includes a "compatibility" switch you can use that will enable certain "Delphi for Win32" language features so you can increase your comfort level. This option can be set on a per-project basis as part of the project options tab.

Although I'm just getting started, I will be documenting differences in my Delphi and Prism Cross Reference Guide. This guide will help when you switch from one language to the other.

Project Compatability Tab

In the Solutions Explorer, right click on the project, select Properties, then select the Compatability tab.
