Description gigica 2003-05-13 08:32:46 UTC
I'd like it to be possible to have an array of components 
managed with the form editor (the code for declaration and 
instantiation/initialization generated by the IDE, not 
written manually). For example, if the user selected two 
or more components of the same type, they would be able to 
type an array name into the Name property (in the 
Properties window, Code Generation tab). An array 
declaration would be generated for an array of size equal 
to the number of components selected, that would contain 
those components. For initial setup of components (bounds, 
size, style, etc.), a for loop containing the 
corresponding code could also be automatically generated .

Not sure about this enhancement - seems quite specific (or marginal) feature to
me, still requiring lots of changes in current model. Don't think implementing
an array support would be worth the effort.
