What a nice contribution.
Many of us missed such a VID GUI ADD-ON toolset.
Many new useful features and better overall use added.
Would like to see some Tree like display but already having a true scrollbar
that works like in others GUI systems is awesome.
Didn't look to see if it already exists.
Hope there will be some similar tool set for R3 so that what we'll learn
here will be reusable...
Do you know about Carls plans for the new R3 VID? Will there be some
I really didn't follow discussions about the new R3 GUI on Altme. May be I
should read them before asking.
One first comment : The below start address is OK but it differs from the
one that is included in the preliminary doc.
I really asks myself if the Key formatter could not be used as some kind of
Intelligent Coder Helper a bit like the Viva REBOL project plans to do.
That is when coding some REBOL sentence the entry point could start, on
demand, a selective help that would display in a pop-up the list of
parameters (drawn directly from REBOL's reflection property of the language)
Some DSL coudl be required to do so like an intelligent assistant would do
for the programmer but nevertheless it could be a rich add-on towards a
complete intelligent IDE and/or dev framework.
It's the most interesting thing I saw since RebGui and the Vive-REBOL
project to help better support and then promote the use of REBOL itself for
more advanced GUI dev...
Thanks. I can help you to test it and report (in the format you want - like
in codecure for example) what has to be reworked if you need to.
Do you have such a list of known bugs to prevent that you received many
times the same items ?
Do you know if Carl has some plan to correct the known low-level bugs for R2
in the future, when R3 up and running and more free time comes by ?
When you are ready let me know.
