In some cases, there are values in Delphi codes like these: $C000, $FFFF, $40000... For example, in the answer to my previous question about OpenType font there was expression: NTM_TT_OPENTYPE    = $40000; What does this value mean and how can it be found out?

    In Delphi Hex values are represented by $ sign. so $40000; means Hex 40000 = 262144 decimal
