If you know me or if you read my blog, you probably know, that I stand 100% behind FMX.
Well and I'm "into FMX" since XE2, but let's say with XE6 or better XE8 it was really useable for every kind of development, desktop, and mobile.
For many years I felt a little bit lonely in this field of development, but since XE10 the club of FMXer is growing faster and faster.
Finally one of the VCL Component developers is using the FMX road, too!
So please clap your hands and welcome DevExpress to the club.
Fun fact: The blogpost about the new DevExpress FMX Grid CTP is posted at/from the VCL Team with - still the VCL logo.
They also promise to include "every single VCL product" in their FMX offering... I think this is a term for: "We will provide an FMX Version of all our components".
So to all haters who haven't taken FMX seriously and/or my love for it for years, I would like to answer with a quote from the blogpost of DevExpress:
"If everyone moves to FireMonkey, we’ll be sure to follow."
Have a nice weekend!
PS.: If you want to start with FMX, don't forget to buy my Firemonkey Development Kit.
