For project team and everyone else want to contribute:

Just now I began big rewrite of the project manager of Fresh. After that IMO the Fresh will have ability to create forms and dialogs completely visual way and include them in the project, compile and run.
But I have no time to create visual components for Fresh, so now there are only 3 components available: Button, checkbox and groupbox controls and their description are not full.

Did anyone wants to create more visual controls for Fresh? For now we need at least windows pre-defined controls. The next step will be ComCtrls and after that user-defined controls.

The details for this work is in Fresh's directory: 'include\components\' and of course I will give any help I can.

Regards

Hi John,
I can take this Smile
I tried to add listbox control, and had no problems with that Smile
But I assume that the "real" component design will start when you will add more functionality to the dialog editor, so I will be able to test it.

regards

Great! Our team grows!!
VeSCeRa: This is how you can start: go to FreshLast/include/components directory and create some asm file (name doesn't matter). Put there this code:
Code:
include '..\..\source\designtime.inc'

DesignTimeInfo                                         \
                                                  \      ; 1. BUTTON CONTROL
      'BUTTON',                                \
       'Button control',                        \
       'Standard',                              \
       'MyButton',                              \
       $54010F00,                                 \      ; default style
  $0,                                        \      ; default ex style
       64, 25,                                    \
       <                                       \      ; style names
       'BS_LEFTTEXT'          , 0020h, "",   \

        'BS_RIGHT'             , 0200h, "",   \

    $00000000,                                 \           ; This is StyleExMaskOr
     $00000001,                                 \           ; This is SubtypeMask
       <                                       \
         'BS_PUSHBUTTON', 0, 'Normal push button',\
     'BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON',1, 'Default push button' \
        >,                                         \        ; This is SubtipeRange
      NONE,                                      \           ; Library file NULL, because it's standard component.
      'Button.ico'    

this will create a simple button control. To add it to the palette, compile this file (binary output), and change it's extension to *.vcl. Then run Fresh. You will see additional button icon in component's palette. Simple, wasn't it? Smile
As you can see, the components are defined as a macro DesignTimeInfo. See designtime.inc file for reference to this macro's parameters.
That's what I learned about making components in Fresh. Good Luck Smile

Hi, VeSCeRa.
As decard wrote, you are welcome in the team.
For now it will be very usefull to have all predefined Windows controls in form of Fresh components:

1. From "BUTTON" class:
1.1. "Button" - BS_PUSHBUTTON and BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON
1.2. "Checkbox" - BS_CHECKBOX, BS_AUTOCHECKBOX, BS_3STATE and BS_AUTO3STATE
1.3. "Groupbox" - BS_GROUPBOX
1.4. "Radiobutton" - BS_RADIOBUTTON and BS_AUTORADIOBUTTON
2. From "COMBOBOX" class:
2.1. "Combobox" - CBS_SIMPLE, CBS_DROPDOWN and CBS_DROPDOWNLIST
3. From "EDIT" class:
3.1. "Edit" - ES_MULTILINE not set.
3.2. "Memo" - ES_MULTILINE set.
4. From "LISTBOX" class:
4.1. "Listbox" - there is only one subclass.
5. From "SCROLLBAR"
5.1. "Scrollbar" - with SBS_SCROLLBOX not set
5.2. "Scrollbox" - with SBS_SCROLLBOX set.
6. From "STATIC"
6.1. "Label" - SS_LEFT, SS_RIGHT or SS_CENTER
6.2. "Shape" - SS_BLACKRECT, SS_WHITERECT, SS_BLACKRECT, SS_BLACKFRAME, SS_GRAYFRAME or SS_WHITEFRAME - maybe I am not comprehensive here, please investigate this point.
6.3. "Image" - SS_BITMAP, SS_ICON and maybe SS_METAPICT

They don't need any special coding, only description in the form of DesignTimeInfo. For short description of TDesignTimeInfo fields, read the text comments in 'sources\designtime.inc'. If you have some troubles understanding my short notes, feel free to ask. Maybe somewhere I am not very clear.

Regards.
John Found

P.S.: The first tree components (Button, checkbox and groupbox) are in the file BUTTONS.asm in 'include/components/' directory, but there are mistakes in some of the fields - I mean style masks.

It's good that you've made that list Smile Now I'm taking buttons and the list (I started it already).
And, see at the attached picture. Why groupbox'es background is different than form's background? I couldn't avoid it by modifing DesignTimeInfo.

Hi decard. Visibly I am late with my last post. Very Happy
About picture: Please attach it as some other format, jpeg is not proper format for checking colors. GIF or PNG will be OK. It seems that it only looks different because of grid lines, but I can't check it.

Well, I meant that I'm starting with BUTTON class (+it's variants) and LIST class - they are "above controls". I just wanted to show that proably something is wrong with form editor - because it draws groupbox with invlid color.

[edit]OK, now it's PNG. It's definitely not because of the grid Smile[/edit]

OK, I will wait for notice from you, when you are ready.
However, please make another snapshot of group box in gif format (ot even zipped bitmap). I want to check what is wrong with the colors.

OK, I got it (Color difference I mean).
I will try to fix it in the next release.
It is simply because TForm gives the proper color from Windows, but another controls not.

Regards.

John, what about SubTypeMask field in DesignTimeInfo? I'm not quite sure what value to put in it, the description says that the BUTTON class should have it set to 0x0f, while it is 0x01 in push button, 0x03 in checkbox, and 0x07 in groupbox.

Hi decard.

Windows BUTTON class have following subtypes:
Code:
BS_PUSHBUTTON      = 0000h
BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON   = 0001h
BS_CHECKBOX        = 0002h
BS_AUTOCHECKBOX    = 0003h
BS_RADIOBUTTON     = 0004h
BS_3STATE          = 0005h
BS_AUTO3STATE      = 0006h
BS_GROUPBOX        = 0007h
BS_USERBUTTON      = 0008h
BS_AUTORADIOBUTTON = 0009h
BS_OWNERDRAW       = 000Bh
    


The SubtypeMask field is the smallest mask that can separate only these subtype numbers that our control may have. For example the Button control may have only BS_PUSHBUTTON = 0 and BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON = 1. So, the mask that can separate this subtypes is 1.
Checkbox control may have subtypes 2, 3 (and maybe 5 and 6). So the mask will be $3 (or $7 in second case).
Actually this is not so important, because there is list with possible subtypes, and I think it is no problem to use one mask $0f for all subtypes of the BUTTON class. However, for other Windows classes this mask may be different.

Regards.

Hi John,
I've just done the BUTTONs and by the way I thought about some changes to the component's design: what about the additional 'components/source/' directory? The main dir wouldn't be so messed. Also, I added winconst.inc file (with component specific constants, like BS_*) to this dir to make design a bit easier (for example see button.asm). What do you think about this? I uploaded the whole 'components' dir (it is guite small), so you can just replace your dir with my one, and it will work.
I've alredy started another components, but first I want to know your opinion about my changes.
And sorry that it took so long but I have a very busy week in school Sad

regards

Hi decard.
Really good work. Thank you.
Only one note, put WS_CHILD in default window style field. I will make form designer to check this style, but IMO, it is good to have right values in .vcl files.
About new dir structure - I am fully agree. It makes the files more ordered.

About the time: Don't worry. There is not deadline for Fresh. Wink Just now I am deeped in the project manager and source editor. There are so many changes, that I can't write them to history.inc. Wink
So the next release will late a little.
Keep good work, but don't forget for the school.

Regards.

Hmmm, I put WS_CHILD in StyleMaskOR, and I thought that it will be enough.
Good to hear that you're making progresses - I can't wait for the moment when I will be able to use this controls in Fresh Smile

Yea, you are right in principle. Form editor should corect the style when the control is created. But at first this is not implemented yet, and at second I think that it is good to use valid value in control description, not to wait Fresh to correct it.

Hi VeSCeRa.
I can't find words to express my feelings, about terrorists atacks in Turkey. (And any other terrorist attacks in the World) It is strange and pity that humans may die because of religion in the 21st sentury. Sad
I hope you don't lost some friends.

About Fresh components, there is a lot of work, so if you want to help, you are welcome. Decard made only Buttons and Listbox. Look on my previous post (immediately after your post on previous page) - there is a list with components we need. You may begin with "STATIC" or "EDIT" classes.

Best regards.
