[Migrated] Options list
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

This is one the more ambitious ideas and is a repost from the discussion page. It effectively present the user with a modular view of AWB with its options presented in a matrix. @Dispenser 04:43, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Do you program in C#? Or are you capable at least of designing Windows Forms* in Visual Studio? If you are, perhaps you should join the team. Judging by our efforts up to now we don't have any UI artists aboard. *Or we could go with WPF, which would necessitate a move to .net 3.5, a jump I personally feel we will have to make at some stage.

I don't know anything about C/C++/C#, yet. But I'd be willing to give the GUI thing as free time becomes available. I assume its part of the Visual Studio package I use to compile AWB.

Yes it is. Windows Forms in Visual Studio is ''fairly'' simple if you're sticking to design, don't really need to be able to code much to do the visual part.

The .Net Framework 3.5 introduced design/code seperation I believe, a replacement for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows Forms called https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows Presentation Foundation and a new markup language (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XAML?). I've not tried any of these features yet and we're currently using .Net 2.0 with AWB so we're stuck with Windows Forms unless there's a compelling reason to "upgrade". Visual Studio can do both types of design anyway.

If you can do the graphical side.. It wouldnt be too hard to tie the backend code into it all... I suspect, looking at that, we're gonna need to make a custom control, probably inheriting from listview/similar... As a list view can do the different types of view like you see in Windows Explorer - Large Icon, Small Icon, Details... I may have a play later on

Bit of googling/looking about. We are certainly going to need either a custom control, or to write our own. As list views by default do not accept images in the sub items (ie columns other than the first)
