hi all

ProgressIndicater (like some other controls) appear to have the default GetData / SetData interface beeing missing.. is this by design? it would ease things on common handling in a Ctrl based factory lot.. by not needing to sace extra info, just invoke GetDa
ta/SetData known interface..

just add
Progress.h:27
	int   Get() const                           { return actual; }

	void   SetData(const Value& v)              { Set(v); }
	Value  GetData() const                      { return Get(); }

Not quite sure it is completely right:

ProgressIndicator is kind of static value - user cannot change it. So far the policy was that only widgets that are editable have Value.

The reason is that if you want to store all user supplied values in the dialog, you can simply go through all widgets and store the value if it is not Value::Void - that indicates that the widget does not have associated value.

ah...ok that makes soome sense..

this 'policy' is one of the things to be mentioned in CtrlDesignConcepts Smile

thank you

PS: if you think of ProgressIndicater as beeing sort of a slider a user later could change, this might involve extension of ProgressIndicater ofcorse, but is quite helpfull. Sliders dont look too cool sometimes Smile (CMeter in bazaar was an attempt to overcome these shortcomings)
