TOPIC: More UI Improvements

More UI Improvements 3 Years, 2 Months ago
I have made some more UI improvements:
  • changed the "operation" part of ParamsSelectControl to a new ChooseButtonControl

  • changed the down arrows on MenuButton's (and derived controls) to be grayed out until the mouse is over them

  • similarly, changed the DropDownButtonControl to just show a gray arrow until the mouse is over it

One of the reasons to change the operation part of ParamsSelect is that users often try to type values into the operation. It also was not clear that nothing in the operation meant "all". Both of these problems are solved by the new style.

Also, I think it looks nicer, and fits Vista better.

Compare the new screen-shot to the previous Presets one.

Thanks Andrew.
How/where do we get the updates to the UI?

I have been expecting that question :-)

I am (again) overdue for a new release. I will try to get one put together. But it is always more fun to work on new stuff :-)

Maybe I will upload a snapshot so people can at least try some of the new stuff (like PDF).
