Anybody to write and submit similar article about U++?

http://www.codeproject.com/library/wxwidgets.asp?df=100& forumid=212952&exp=0&select=1318346#xx1318346xx

Once again, Overview is a good source material (maybe could be used even without further modifications).

Mirek

P.S.: If nobody volunteers, I will do it myself. However, that will mean slowing U++ development by 2 hours:)

I'll do it. I'll post it online before I actually submit it (for comments and suggestions).

Draft one:
http://ezellmedia.com/upp/IntroU++/IntroU++.html

Thoughts, corrections, suggestions?

I didn't want to enumerate a huge feature list like the other one, because frankly, I don't think most people care. The just want to know does it work, and how easy is it. If we can "hook" them, they will come to the site for specific details. But this is up for debate too.

I'll submit it maybe tomorrow, depending on what feedback I get from you all.

First impression: those cuts of the screenshots... Rolling Eyes
Anyway, the last word is Mirek's...

Well, thats a small thing... Code Project has a rule that screenshots can't be more then 600px wide. I personally hate when screenshots are just chopped off with no visual indication that more could be shown- but isn't. For the shots that show everything, I did not cut them.
But I'll be glad to retake the shots if thats the consensus.

We can do http://ezellmedia.com/upp/bIntroU++/IntroU++.html if you like that better.
How about comments on the actual article?

Good work.

I like "fade-out" screenshots a lot. Please use them instead of those jagged.

Notes:

- remove "NTL" notes. It is not very important at that point and it even is not true (Core was always Core, just in short period, before releasing U++ as public project, as first try, I extracted container classes from the Core, named them "NTL" and released).

- maybe you should note that the very first compile can take a bit long and why (because U++ has libraries in source form and they have to be compiled first time, but are cached afterwards).

- typo: "Arrage the widgets so it looks like" - Arrange?

- maybe a screenshot of final application?

That looks great. It might be nice to include the final source code, just in case newcomers got lost along the way (since the instructions for adding more code are textual).

You highlighted the ease of manipulating controls well - shownig that AddItem() could be done in two lines.

I actually pulled that section from Wikipedia... does that mean that article is wrong?

Fixed. Thanks.

Good idea, not sure why I didn't do that.

The source is available as a zip at the top, but I agree, I do need to show the final code.

Yes. Going to fix that.

You might want to check your location data. After all we want to know exactly where the famous whiskey comes from! Smile
