Just for fun, I wrote an application (unit) to inspect the types (With RTTI info) used on my projects developed using Delphi 2010 and Delphi XE.
This project has these features
- A hierarchical view of all types With Rtti info, tha data is showed following this structure Package->Unit->Type->Fields (Methods, properties, fields)
- Show rtti information about any Rtti element
- Search a particular Rtti Element
- A hierarchical view of all existing classes in your project
Check the Screenshots
If you want use this unit in your own projects (Delphi 2010 or Delphi XE), simply add the unit MainRttiExpl to your project and run the procedure ShowRttiLiteExplorer
The source code is available in Github and the demo app is here.
Links updated, now using Dropbox ;).

Very nice, a developer can learn a lot about RTTI browsing the source code!!

Why use Rapidshare ? I naively assume that when someone publishes some code, he wants his fellow developpers read it as unobstruvely as possible. Downloading your code is a pain in the neck !

i’m sorry Felix, I Knew wich use rapidshare is annoying sometimes, but I have no other option at the moment, because “wordpress.com”. Does not allow binary attachments as zip or rar, in free plans (like my blog). if you have other suggestions to share files this will be welcome.

Felix the links was updated to dropbox.

Maybe You can use https://www.dropbox.com/features which also allows Public sharing files with others?

Thanks for the suggestion, now i’m using Dropbox

it would be better to host it on Google code or SourceForge, so anyone can browse it without downloading, and also it will be easier for you when you have updated version to publish.

Yeah, GoogleCode would be the way to go for sure.

Muy interesante el tema (personalmente RTTI me parece apasionante) y el código de ejemplo.

thanks for the anwswer. But don’t worry, I did wait the 2 or 3 minutes to get the code before writing my post. In any case, congratulation for your blog which is among the few ones whith solid code or technical information, an not only off-topic buzz rehash
