Ooops... I was called on the phone for a long time and did not see your last message Embarassed

It is rather easy to translate the Paint function to Painter. If you want I can do a simple version for you to extend it when you learn more.

If you have some time for that and think that it is a better way/better result, Ok. But as I said, I have to learn Painting from the very beginning ! I know almost nothing about image processing, and I'm even not very sure to know well what is antialiasing !!! However, if I have some time, I should be happy to learn more about all that !

If I were you I would move all the comments like this to a .tpp help file. This way they will be accessible to help system and they will appear in web Smile.

Yes, doc is important. Could you point me a doc or example on how to do and how to make it similar to other docs ?

Hello Jibe

Here Mirek left excellent Painter examples.

A good thing is that with Painter we would not use star images and we could get nice visual effects.

About .tpp help file I can begin one for you for StarIndicator and you could complete it.


Best regards

Hi Koldo,

Yes, I saw that yesterday. It gives a good idea of what can be done with Painter, but to know how it works and how to use it, the only way is to study the code.

I didn't look at the code, because when you lack time it's not easy, sometimes very difficult, if you don't have any idea on what it is exactly. And if you know very few about the subject (I never coded anything about images and drawing), I'm afraid that the code will be veeeeeeeery veeeeeeeery long to study and understand !

So, I'm afraid that studying the code will not be very usefull for me, unless I spend a big amount of time, as I'm just supposing without being sure that Painter is a kind of vectorial drawing...

Yes, no doubt about that ! I'm just afraid that it will be a big and long work when the result is already good in the last version ! More especialy when I have first to learn how to code drawings + what is painter exactly and how to use it...

As I said, I should be happy to learn about all that, but I have few time and the lack of doc is discouraging.

Thank you for your help ! Very Happy I found those explanations and I think that I can do that. Just give me some time, and I'll send you a version with .tpp help. I prefer that you spend time to convert StarIndicator to Painter or document Painter Wink

I'm just beginning to study that and did not found yet how to do to have translations. I think that I will find quickly, or if you can point some doc about that, I'll make also the translation in french.

If Honza can publish his explanations in the doc, it will be better seen and could be completed (ie for translations), so that we can find easily all we need to make the doc Wink

I found how to have translated .tpp files. In fact, it's easy and intuitive in the special editor of TheIde.

=> I'll do en-us and fr-fr .tpp files for StarIndicator and SliderCtrlX ASAP.

Hello Jibe

If you want I can include Painter in StarIndicator with few and commented changes from original code for you to understand better.

When you learn more you can add nice effects to the stars like shades and reflections... if it makes sense Smile.

Ok, it's kind for you Smile

If you can, this will help me to learn how works Painter ! I don't think that reflexion and shade will be good in this control, but if you think that it's better to use Painter and can do it, why not ?

I began to make the .tpp file. Not so difficult ! I'm just surprised that I cannot change the text color with the editor, but I worked around this by copying/pasting from other files...

Here is the .tpp file for StarIndicator.

Pls let me know if it's Ok or if there are some changes to do. I'll make the SliderControlX tpp ASAP.

Hi,

Here is the doc for SliderCtrlX, and some minor corrections/adds to StarIndicator doc.

It could be good that somebody re-reads and corrects these docs : even if I did them carefully, I could have make some mistakes !

Hi Koldo,

I just discover that the link to SliderCtrlX is missing in your widget list,

Also, the doc seems not to be on the web (while StarIndicator do is there).

Could you correct this, please ?

Hello Jibe

It is now uploaded.

However remember that uppweb shows in internet all tpp pages that are linked. I mean, if anybody adds a new tpp help page and it is not linked by any other, it will not be shown in the web.

Yes. So, it was the reason why SliderCtrlX was not visible in the web... and why it is now that you add the link in your widget list. Smile

By the way, you told me in your message #34574 :

It would be good if we can use painter, as the images are not so good. Just to make them better, or why not to add some shadow or 3D effect to make it more beautiful.

But there is no emergency : if and when you have some free time... I could probably do it myself, but I have no time and no other need for now to learn painter.

Hello Jibe

Painter is different but rather simple.

StaticRectangle and StaticEllipse (Controls4U.cpp) are very simple Painter samples.

Remember that Painter primitives use double instead of int to have subpixel accuracy. Smile
