Compliments
« on: July 25, 2019, 01:50:28 PM »

I have finally moved the great move to WinFBE.

My Compliments to all involved. Paul, JosŤ and all that contributed.
It is a considerable amount of work you have done.

The designer has a nice, clean, crisp feeling to it.

Remarkable.

My greatest satisfaction has been to get Paul to adopt unicode and DPI awareness.

And probably your greatest frustration will be answering all my questions....

Lol, that actually did make me laugh out loud! hahaha

It was a long slow ride getting me on the unicode and high dpi train  :)
It wasn't really until I started using a high dpi laptop that I got the "a-ha" moment when everything that Jose was preaching finally made sense. Also, I should have transitioned over to unicode a long, long time ago but with such a huge (FireFly) code base, it was difficult.

Thanks Peter - there's still a hell of a lot of work left to do on the WinFBE visual designer. I changed positions at work recently so my programming productivity has been less than stellar shall we say due to the added workload during the transition.

I am also trying to wrap my head around the syntax and the changes it brings along.
I am unfortunately wat JosŤ calls a "drag and drop" programmer. Without the visual designer I am completely lost.

I am eagerly playing around with what is already there, and i love it.
Still a bit weird the way the Project is created as with FF-PB, but the whole feel is much more slick and professional.

I cannot wait for that project to go to release version 1.0 with all the little gadgets and tools i got used too.

You gentlemen should give yourself a pat on the back. Great stuff.

Finally back to programming again after a bit of a hiatus. I have finished the StatusBar Editor and its corresponding code generation. Seems to work pretty well. Next up: ToolBar Editor.

I know I like to throw in weird things....

But have you perhaps considered to have the toolbar have alternative controls other than buttons?
If .Net it can be just about anything, even a combobox.
I have actually enjoyed that combobox "button" for selections like default printer, switching a user etc.

Or am I of the tracks again :-)

I know what you mean, Visual Studio can also do progress bars, labels, and textboxes in the toolbar. For now, I am going to implement Button, Separator, Split Button, and Whole Drop Down Button.
