I have two suggestions

if you click 'Edit' inside a script , lets say winbuilder is in design mode,
it would be a nice feature to show controls in different colors for background, border etc.,
so overlapping and wrong sizes can be easy detected by script developers.

for 120DPI hosts it would be nice feature to resize/reposition controls
'on the fly' (=just before creating controls in windows) for the GUI.
most scripts look ok if growing factor is (1.1 ... 1.2) * 120 / 96.

Do you mean something like this?

ad #2: Not so easy (WB controls are not just 'normal' controls placed into a container)
Let's see!

If you see "beta 5 p" in the caption, no need to be confused.

The "Beta 5 ?" are my private programmer's playground. And at night I upload my 'work of the day' to the URL you can see in my signature.

BUT: A beta 5 ? can also be just unusable.

Have a look here

fxscript, yep i know what you mean, As you already know by now, with some luck i already do that with my grey background (Window color) which helps a lot

Following psc peter's color setting
(IMG:http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/6290/snap2xg7.png)
You get the some of the result you want
(IMG:http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/6612/snap3ny5.png)

be carelful textlabels dont have white background color (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

BUT

Recently I found something (thanks to amalux)
with different color settings, checkbox texts overwrite textlabel texts
with white color setting, checkbox texts and textlabel texts are mixed
Example:
look written text at top of gui with 'white color window', than change window color
http://lancelot.winbuilder.net/5F_scriptsl...able_paf_v2.rar
fixed: http://lancelot.winbuilder.net/5F_scriptsl...able_paf_v4.rar


As a conclusion, i support fxscript's idea:

Also for 120 dpi, reminding default winbuilder size should be bigger, default 776 558 (i guess) is small when fonts are enlarged manually.

nice to see a script Developer interested (like me) in cosmetics of wb (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Also an idea
Having background color option for textlabels, checkbox (and others) will be nice and will make writing gui easier.

For TLabels, I tried to solve this programmatically for more than one hour. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/frusty.gif)
(For other classes, the issue is solved with a 'general BackColor')

But it seems to be impossible
Maybe in a future release WinBuilder will use a ??? component rather tan the TLabel (???)

nothing essential, Thic can wait psc, maybe infuture with wb078 (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) , nothing urgent. Just sharing ideas.

Let me give some simple importance points from my point of view:
10- development of .script programming is upper most important.
09- everthing should work as it should be (there was a missing option of download needs to resume, like download managers do)
08- nice useable interface with nice options (clicking on icon open folder (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) or script, keyboard navigation (kb nav begin to make wb blink after wb075e), new multi lang support etc.)
07-
06
05- when updating old script backup (and maybe an option to go back to date like xp restore (i dont use xp restore)
04
03- interface with color options (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
02
01

wb is wonderful, dont think i complain, these are only ideas to share.

The level idea is (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif)
This can give us a help for further development.

On the other hand, such suggestions bring my brain to work ...
