Alister Christie, a Delphi MVP has been providing us with a great number of useful tips and tricks on how to code faster in Delphi. Most notably, he has been sharing some handy keyboard shortcuts that every developer can apply in their project to avoid consuming too much time on typing or waving the mouse. These are simple tricks yet absolutely useful when coding a project with Delphi or dealing with some windows application development.

From time to time, he also shares some obscure discoveries that he encountered in Delphi. In this Learn Delphi video, Alister will share with us this obscure Delphi character syntax, in which you can use ^C to represent CTRL+C or #3 in your code. Feel free to watch the video above and see the step by step demonstration. If you are working on a legacy code, this video is definitely worth watching.
