In this movie we take a look at what Class Helpers are. There is still a bit of debate as to whether class helpers are good or evil - I think this is because people are using them beyond what they were intended for - which is exactly what we do in this video which you can watch here.
For some more information on Class Helpers you can read:
- David Glassborow's Blog
- An Article on About.com by Zarko Gajic.
- Nick Hodges New Delphi language features since Delphi 7
- Marco Cantu has a section in his book Delphi 2007 Handbook
Class Helpers were originally intended as a language feature for "language and platform RTL binding", but they are being used for much more. I'm not enough of a OO guru to be able to make much comment as to this level of goodness or badness.
I had the flu while making this and you can tell that I'm not as "with it" as I usually am with this one - sorry.
