Hi everyone!

This topic is meant to discuss the features to be added on the next stable version of wb which will later become version 074 when it's ready for the public.

In the meanwhile, these betas are made available for only for testing purposes - please ask or read the talks around here to know what to expect..

All requests for new features and bugfixes are more than welcome and you can find all the latest 073 beta binaries here on this topic to keep everything on a single place.

------------

Only one request from my part - please create new discussion topics for non-WinBuilder.exe discussion and this way keep this place clean and focused on a single matter.

This new version will become the result of your feedback and I thank in advance to everyone who joins our discussions here.

Above anything else - have fun and happy testing! (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

We're back to beta discussions.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

-- Modified the main window to make more room for other tabs and also make the overall look more tidy
-- Added the option to use a standalone editor for .script and .project files along with auto-associate - this can also be disabled from the option tab if not required.



Bugs on new features

-- Buttons and Checkboxes won't likely work when used under the standalone editor mode - sorry..

First impressions and comments about WinBuilder 073 beta1:

1. Work area is slightly larger but looks to white.

2. Web page of WB072 is much better,
as it gives lot of info besides connection to the Forum.

3. On all pages, except on Scripts, WB logo and title are lost.

4. Tools are accessible only from Scripts page.

5. Tools pages are slightly larger, but again to white.

6. Process bars are to square and color looks anemic in Vista.


Suggestions:

1. Keep WB072 graphical composition.

2. Add some more background colors.

3. Round top (bar) edges of all pages.

4. Add in the Tools, page titled Make Apps script,
similar as Create script, with Location within Apps folder,
short description of MakeScript generator and button Generate,
to invoke MakeScript.exe, which should be located in the
Projects/Tools folder.

I'd like the feature for the script editor to ask if changes are to be saved (yes, no, cancel) if exiting but changes are not yet saved.

Thanks,
Galapo.

Nuno..
..thanks for sharing your work in progress! I'll have a look in a moment.

Any chance of adding search and replace to wb txt editor? It's not very important, but since I wind up using it often, it would be a help. For fast search and replace, I often use metapad, a notepad replacement. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Ok, here are my suggestions for a new WinBuilder version:
  1. Improved attachment decoding (see this topic)
  2. Speed-up some of the commands (pedrole15 suggested that often using "System,RefreshVars" takes a lot of time)
  3. Moving the built process into an own thread so that the WinBuilder GUI is usable all the time while building
  4. Same thing for the download progress which killed the my WinBuilder (non-responsive, hung) more than once during the last days
