Log Dateien des iOS Simulator unter Xcode 6.2

Xcode 6.2 hat einige Neuerungen in Bezug auf die Simulator-Unterstützung mitgebracht. So findet man im Device Manager von Xcode eine lange, konfigurierbare Liste von vorgefertigten Simulatoren. Mit Xcode 6.2 werden auch gleich die iOS Versionen 7.1, 8.1 und 8.2 für den Simulator bereitgestellt. Man muss diese nicht mehr unter den Xcode Einstellungen herunter/nachladen:


Betrachten wir das hier selektierte "iPad Air" mit der iOS Version 8.2 (Build Nummer 12D508). Man findet auf der rechten Seite den Identifier "A9D39F4A-1642-4E70-AADC-EC5AB20E24EE"

  • Direkt im Datei-System
    Die Log Dateien finden sich im Verzeichnis
    ~ ▸ Library ▸ Logs ▸ CoreSimulator ▸ <Identifier>
    (~ steht für den Benutzer-Home-Pfad)

  • Zusätzliche Simulatoren werden in
    installiert. Also neuerdings unabhängig von der eigentlichen Installation. Das hat den Vorteil, daß Signaturen von App-Bundles nicht mehr ungültig werden
  • Selbstdefinierte Geräte können individuell konfiguriert werden:

NB: Viele Simulator-Funktionen lassen sich (automatisiert) für das Kommandozeilenwerkzeug simctl steuern. Starten, stoppen, neu anlegen, löschen, Fotos hinzufügen, Apps starten, ….

TMS Software Spell Checking for VCL and FireMonkey apps

During several of our recent online events, I was asked if there was a multi-device spell checking and RTF component solution for FireMonkey. The answer is, yes there is.  Spell  Checking components are available from TMS Software both for Windows VCL and multi-device FireMonkey apps.  Bruno Fierens (TMS Software) showed the spell checker components working in apps during his Technology Partner Spotlight webinar in February. Here are a few links to the spotlight replay and also to the TMS spell checking product pages.
