Unused VCL Units Profiler Options

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on March 03, 2021

The Unused VCL Units profiler includes a number of options that work at runtime and define the specifics of profiler functioning.

You can view and modify these options in the following dialogs –

  • In the Profiler Options dialog that is displayed when you run the profiler (see Setting Profiler Options Before the Run).

  • In the Options dialog. To invoke it, select Options > Options from AQTime’s main menu. Then choose Profilers > Static Analysis > Unused VCL Units Profiler from the tree on the left.In the Options dialog. To invoke it, select Tools > Options from Visual Studio’s main menu. Then choose AQTime > Profilers > Static Analysis > Unused VCL Units Profiler from the tree on the left.In the Options dialog. To invoke it, select AQTime > Options from Embarcadero RAD Studio’s main menu. Then choose Profilers > Static Analysis > Unused VCL Units Profiler from the tree on the left.

    You can also invoke this dialog by pressing Configure Current Profiler on the Standard toolbar when the profiler is selected.

The options are –

  • Delphi version - Specifies the version of the Delphi compiler used to create your application. The profiler requires the compiler version for the correct analysis of unit usage.
  • Ignore units with names containing - Specifies the name or the part of the name of a unit you want to exclude from analysis. To specify multiple unit names or name parts, separate them by semicolons. The default value is const;type;messages;comstr;_TLB;. That is, the Unused VCL Units profiler ignores all the units whose names include either a const, type, messages, comstr or a _TLB string.

    An alternative to this option is specifying the names of files to be ignored in the <AQTime>\Bin\Extensions\IgnoredUnits.txt file.

    To learn why to exclude certain types of units from the analysis, see the Recognition Issues section in Unused VCL Units Profiler - Overview.
