New scripting features

Post by jiri » Fri Jan 02, 2009 5:41 pm

There have been some new scripting features added particularly related to user interface, most notably SDBUIListBox and SDBUITreeList control. You can see three new sample scripts using these controls in ... le_scripts . Please check it out and let me know what there's something really important missing or not working well. I hope that it will add brand new possibilities for great scripts!

I started recently to use your TreeList control, particularly as a replacement for ListView control. Unfortunately, I found it is missing many important things. Here are my observations:

1. There is not a tooltip for truncated text if it is wider than column width. This issue is really irritating to me.

2. It is impossible to sort some column by click on the column header since there not exists an OnHeaderColumnClick event or something similar (OnMouseUp/OnMouseMove events for TreeList.Common control cannot be used because they are not generated when a mouse cursor is over the header).

3. There is not an OnHeaderColumnMove event, so we cannot store columns position for latter retrieval if user change their order in table.

4. This control could have check boxes in each row, but there is not any way to put check box in the header. You know, such check box is using for un/selecting all rows in table in your Auto-Tag and Auto-Organize dialogs. I have some workaround for this using additional check box, but it has one more tab stop (if you navigate controls with the Tab key) and has different background color than the header background:

5. There is not a possibility to change background color of some cell as you could do with your Auto-Tag/Auto-Organize tables and Unsynchronizes Tags tracklist with some cells in yellow color.

Well, if I really want to replace the Web Browser control and HTML tables with the TreeList control, I need also some things which are not possible as well, e.g. to set foreground color of some part of text or to set word-wrapped display of text...
