New SkyIDE UI Design/Add-ons. Please express your opinion
« on: December 17, 2006, 09:53:35 PM »
Firstly, a lot of internal work has been done with the object viewer. I have implemented a very smart function which performs advanced analysis of your code and it should make things work properly this time (I hope).

Secondly, I have added extra sections for the function listings and I am having trouble making up my mind which way I wanna go. Please look at the screen shot.

Please express your opinion on whether:

1. I should keep things the way they are, all functions in the C++ toolbar

2. Create separate tabs in the Object Viewer for Functions, Classes, Loops as shown on the screenshot

3. Put everything under one TreeView but separate "Functions", "Classes" etc on separate nodes.

Also, what do you think of the middle mouse button section? I want to make the functions accessible as easy as possible. I want to keep this middle mouse button feature regardless whether the first or the second way wins. What's your opinion on all this?

Con.

I would say #2 is the easiest / quickest to both use and glance at  :Thmbsup:

I took a small break for about a day or two :) Here is a small update about how the VB section works :)

http://www.skyide.co...es/temp/vbscreen.png

Please ignore the C++ toolbar/tree-node images in VB....I will fix the art work at the end when I finish the new changes. For now I just want to get the main things working. As you can see from the image, although illigal, if you have multiple function declarations with the same name and the same signature (just testing to see how smart my code is hehe), it highlights the right one! :)

Thanks Gothi[c] :)

I hope I find a way around the "Import Bakefile" feature. I have not forgotten about it. I will look at it again once I have the current task completed. I'd rather work one task at a time and make sure it works than working on multiple sections everywhere at once.
