    NSW 0.7 alpha.1 BUGS/Quirks

    Well I decided to rebuild my skin from scratch this time since it was not compatible with the new version. Here's a few things I found.

    Anytime you save in NSW it sets active/inactive settings to "True" or "False" instead of "Vrai" or "<FR equiv of False>". Anytime you save a skin all of your skin buttons/text/controls will disappear. Best way I found to "fix" is to open up the xml file in a search/replace text editor and do a mass swap.

    In EN translation the text entries mp3_* all show up as mp3_year vs mp3_debit, mp3_frequence and so on. However when you click on any of them the "Control description" Shows what it SHOULD be.

    Whenever you add a "text" control there is no default text for the <format> field. So it effectively shows up blank. You have to know that %debit and so on.

    Thank you for the report.

    I've found the bug hiding all controls in NSW

    Was it PEBKAC?

    Glad to hear it was that simple. This was the same problem I had with previous versions but decided to edit file directly. This time round I wanted a clean slate!

    -When clicking on a control in the left pane (can be button/text etc...), you cannot delete it by pressing the del key, only if you click the control on the right (design-) pane.

    -Images behind control on the right pane don't get updated until you click them (also, only on the right pane)

    -When changing properties of controls (font, fontcolor), you need to click in another textfield on the left pane to 'save' the changes. When just clicking on another control, the changes are lost.

    I think some of these were already in my list on the 0.65 version, but I thought I should point them out anyway...
    The filehandling has improved a lot since 0.65! Nice work!

    I can't seem to find the button command 'CUSTOM_APP' when trying to add
    a new button (for launching an external app. in the main screen)

    its why it do not exists

    Just make another button and replace his name by "CUSTOM_APP_yourapp" in the skin.xml file (or simply replace existing one -> CUSTOM_APP_mapstore or CUSTOM_APP_mappoint by anything you want)

    Hey netsuo

    What I ment was that this command option is not available in the skin editor button commands and not the xml file itself.

    PS. This project ROCK.

    The Height, Width, X and Y Coordinate entry behaviour is... annoying. The previous version was much better. It won't let you have an empty box.

    For example you have 487 as a current entry, and you want to change it to 329. Previously you could delete all the numbers and type in new. Since you can't have an empty box you hit the delete key 3 times but the 4 keeps coming back. The "easiest" way I've found to get around it is to select the entire box then as you type your number it deletes and replaces. It's annoying, at best. The + or - buttons I think are less useful. If we have to do without those to get the behaviour back I'm all for it!
