Attachments: Diff for Form Editor to put code gen and events properties on separate tabs

Description dpavlica 2003-06-04 16:39:41 UTC
Let's prove TABs in a new design of PS.
E.g. there could be following TABS e.g. in the Form Editor 
Property Sheet:
-basic TAB "Properties" includes these categories: 
Properties, Other Properties and Accessibility)
-second one with a name "Events"
-third one with a name "Code" (or Code Generation, but 
Code is shorter)

I can look into this, but it would probably be much faster to have
someone familiar with the form editor look into this.  I'll see
how complicated FormDataObject is - it may not be insanely difficult - 
or it may be.

Diff for Form Editor to put code gen and events properties on separate tabs
Comment 3 _ tboudreau 2003-06-24 12:15:00 UTC
Created a patch for the form editor to put the requested
property sets into tabs.  It works.

I've created issue 34552 for the form editor folks to 
integrate the patch here into the form editor sources 
after the property sheet is in the trunk.
Comment 4 Tomas Pavek 2003-07-25 11:17:03 UTC
Issue 34552 has been fixed, but it revealed two problems:

- The last tab is always selected when property sheet is shown
  for a node (in Component Inspector).

- How to make the "Code" tab to appear after "Events" ?
Comment 5 Tomas Pavek 2003-07-25 16:27:33 UTC
Seems like the first problem causes failure of validation tests for
form editor (ide/test/qa-functional/src/

The patch for issue 34552 was reverted.
Comment 6 _ tboudreau 2003-07-28 14:17:57 UTC
I (or whoever is assigned the property sheet next) can look 
into the tab selection.

Re the order, it depends on what order the property sets are
added/returned from getPropertySets - please file a separate issue
against the form editor for that.

I'm re-closing this issue - it is a TASK which was completed.

I've created issue 35167 and issue 35168 to track the 
individual issues mentioned above.
