View Full Version : Odd Delphi hint

09-03-2011, 03:27 PM

I'm curious if you know a good answer to this...

Delphi gives me the following hint:

[DCC Hint] nasha_application.pas(46): H2365 Override method TNashaApplication.OnUpdate should match case of ancestor TEventListener.onUpdate

I thought Delphi was not case sensitive. :o Does anybody know why delphi wants me to fix that?

Just a guess but perhaps it is because of cross OS support?

The idea is that it's because of .Net...

I think Wayne Niddery's answer is very good in that regard.

<snip text>If it were actually case-insensitive, it would be an error instead of just a warning.<snip text>

Anyway, I dearly hope Delphi/Pascal never goes case-insensitive. It is one of the things I hate in C++, Java and the like. :)
