Release 2.0 - Guyz This one is BIG!( i skipped a few releases because the last release candidate broke due to recent changes in GUI feature, and with all these major changes it virtually became a new application ...winamp 5.0 logic? ; )Changes:
-The biggie 'Edit existing GUI scripts'
is here!!!! yes now its possible!!! (my earlier plan and beardboy's suggestion too)
-And the awesome 'Move Group'
!!... select a group of controls and move all of them together!... try it! its even sexy to look at!!
-MicroEditing. This stops controls from snapping to 10 pixel gaps and allows controls to be moved one pixel at a time.
-Constant Target Control and SmartGUI Window statistics display.
-Very stable control placement fix. the earlier version placed all controls about 2-3 pixels up (not a mojor difference...but its fixed now).To move group of controls:
just select 'Move Group' from menu and drag mouse left button to completely cover all the controls that you want to be included in the group, and then move them to your hearts content using the control panel !
I remember Chris mentioned more than once that creating a GUI maker in some programming language is better than doing it in AHK, as maybe there one can select group of controls, while here it can't be done. so its basically his idea.
-well who says there are limits?! : )Things to take care of while editing existing GUI scripts:
-No same line comments on 'Gui, add' statements
-For now, Font and Color are not supported.
-For now, it'll not work with GUIs having relative placing. The placing must be absolute (x30 y40 w130 h20)
you can understand it like this:
If you create a GUI using SmartGUI, u can edit it with SmartGUI... if you create one yourself (using auto-sizing etc.), u have to edit it yourself! known issues:
combobox (and dropdownlist which is also combobox) is still a bit troublesome. apart from flashing, i'd to do a fix for the combobox control (i don't like control-specific fixes as that ain't elegant coding). and sometimes dropdownlist doesn't stick to its upper left corner (atleast on my PC) when mouse is clicked. the errors are not due to some problem with SmartGUI (afaik) but something else, which i'd like to track down.
do let me know if and what u like / dislike, bug reports and any feature requests... your constant interest will keep the project going.
