[REBOL] Re: pair-edit style

From: jason:cunliffe:verizon at: 20-Jun-2002 7:11

Anton Thanks this is great! Lots of scope for using in wysiwyg layout design and more. Could be the basis for a cool /View template editor. A suggestion: << Enable single param editing >> a. Detect which part of the pair has been clicked in, then mouse only modifies that one. .. clicking on the 'x' would allow X and Y params as you have now .. clicking at beginning changes only X param .. clicking at the end changes only Y param b. Detect initial movement axis and then apply that. ..user starts to move left/right, so only change X param ..user starts to move up/down, so only change Y param c. Add a modifier key like SHIFT or CTRL so that only X or Y mouse movement will apply .. similar to above but the default is both as you have now .. holding modifier key enables initial-axis' detection. BTW, do you know Miller Puckette's 'PD' aka 'Pure-Data' ? Besides being incredible musical/graphical joy, it has lots of good ideas for very minimal widgets which combine script/data entry with direct mouse-driven user interface. PD is based on patch bay metaphor using simple text-files to describing the components and topology. It is used to create virtual instruments and has growing library of sophisticated objects. some are as smile as changing a value, others are full-blown apps in their own right such as a sequencer.
