Wow , very nice . easy to use, i like it.
French version for next release ?


[EDIT]
CTRL + C and CTRL + V would be fine to copy a gadget.

Gadget icons :
- the icons are ripped from the Purebasic help file (if it's a problem, the gadget bar will be disabled for the public release).


here some free icons (a bit small):

Thanks, but a bit small indeed. I am waiting for Fred's decision.

It's not a priority right now, but I will think about it.

Ok, added some basic copy/paste function.

As far as I find it usefull. What do you mean with 'all the way' ?

I hope it is more than just a teaser. It should be quite functional.

Hi gnozal,

It is functional. And magic. :)

By "teaser" I meant early release of something larger, ditto "All the way" as in maybe turning this into a small project management system, adding the ability to create code per gadget (onClick, etc, procedures), and etc.

This is good as-is and also has some very exciting potential. As the PureForm king and the JaPBe heir-apparent, you are one step away from creating a fully functional project management system for PureBasic.

Some time ago (PB3.93), I wanted to make an IDE plugin (something like gDesign). But I dropped the project (not enough time). Then I wanted to make a visual designer like the official one, but I dropped the project again : jaPBe for PB4 was a priority for me (I am addicted to jaPBe). jaPBe finally updated, I started this project again in june. But it is still PB3.94 code.
I don't know exactly what features I may add : some 'in source' modification like gDesign does would be nice. The project files are plain text, so one can include them into the source code and PureFORM can read them from the source, but not modify the source yet.
Also the 'Translate from source' importer works quite well but needs some more work.
I may also add some jaPBe plugin functions.
There are some refreshing / gadget capture bugs, mainly due to the fact that the real gadgets are dragged / resized in realtime and not only drawn frames like in other designers, and I am not very confortable with the GDI stuff.

I don't understand. Could you be more precise ?
