I've tested the gambas 1.9.28 IDE... lol... nothing really new.
But it's time i think for all of us to tell to you (Benoit), what are our
dreams for this new IDE.
So this is for my part my ideas:
- First a fully dockable tool windows it's possible now with the reparent
function to move windows childs everywhere we need. (so have the flexibility
of gimp/adobe/ and some kde tools)
- Single Mdichild editor or tabbed editor ?
in my mind an editor need to be stored in a tabstrip... (okok i already heard
some poeple tha say me ... i want to compare some time two codes... but i
think there is certainly some possibilities.
- I think the new ide will need to have a project conf file stored in the user
confdir or directly in the project.
- gambas need to have more and more drag and drop facilities.
for example ?
we a little intereting thing in qt and gtk toolkits... the stock function that
link to standards icons from the current toolkit. so imagin you just have to
click and drag to add a new picture in a button ?
One off the first problem i see is the stock structure... it's not really
gambas oriented. I explain :
If i want an open icon in kde, it's not the same key than the gtk one !
I think a thing like a dictionary (hem), to traduce an user keyword will be
better. sorry for this bad explanation.
pic = Stock("open_file")
I've trying to make a version for kde but i was not able to find automatiquely
the current icon theme path.
Always about editor facilities:
ctrl + Click on a widjet will open an input windows to set the caption (more
easy than search the text field in properties(maybe a shortcut will be
Ive mabe some others ideas... but i need to wait a little bit before talk
Maybe just one query to Benoit :
Can you explain me exactly what was doing you report manager in vb ... (in
private mail if you want)
Now to other gambasian maybe have you some ideas to the future gambas ide...
