Dear All,

How to deal with widget that not supported yet by TheIDE layout designer?

I look at supported widget when adding widget to layout and found that not all of widget is supported yet. Should i add manually in my .cpp file (writing code), or we have another better way?

Please advise,
JE

There are two ways:
1) In the Layout Designer right click and select 'User Class'. You get an empty ctrl that you can layout and you can then set the class type using the panel on the bottom left (eg. to ColumnList).

2) To add a control to the Layout Designer menu and have a preview available while laying out you can create a .usc file in your package and add a script for it. See CtrlLib/CtrlLib.usc for examples.

Add 1:

There are in fact two situations:

- the class of widgets is defined at time layout file is included. In that case you can simply write the name of class into the field; you will only see a an empty rectangle with class name on the screen, but for custom widgets that is enough.

- if the class is defined at the point of .lay inclusion, you can still place it to the layout - just leave the field empty. In this case, you hace to the *public* member variable with the same id as "variable" field to your dialog (or layout) class.

Image is not Ctrl...

If you need static widget that displays Image, use ImageCtrl.

johnevans77,
My first guess, you've already explored EyeCare for your system tray needs. Smile
My second guess, your boss is not happy because he can't see in Layout designer what kind Shocked of images you are putting inside his company's software Laughing ???

Btw, from EyeCare.lay:
LAYOUT(EyeCareLayout, 270, 216)
	ITEM(MenuBar, menu, LeftPosZ(0, 256).TopPosZ(0, 24))
	ITEM(ImageCtrl, image, LeftPosZ(10, 253).TopPosZ(32, 40))
	....
END_LAYOUT

Yes.
LayDes is just to display things. With layouts you must think in C++ terms and have in mind:
1. if a widget is already supported (programmed) in C++/U++ but not programmed (you meant this "supported"?) in Laydes *.usc (this is why some U++ widgets are not shown or "fully" functional)
OR
2. You programmed in C++/U++ your own widget

------->then your actions:
1. enter the name of your widget class
2. enter the name of your widget instance
3. !!!important: #include your widget declarations correctly.

"Manually" means you have 3 possibilities:
1. Semi-automatic - just fill in the LayDes fields with:
1.1. name of your widget class
1.2. name of your widget instance
1.3 do postioning
2. "pure" manually with theide editor after shortcut "Ctrl_T"
3. manually or programatically with an editor of your choice or awk, ced, gvim etc.

P.S I use 1- 90%, 2-10% of cases.
