Status bar to Touchscreen builder
« on: May 05, 2010, 11:54:07 pm »
Hi,

I'd like if there would be a status bar in the bottom area of the TS builder that would show
1) Type,
2) Name,
3) Location and
4) Size
of the selected object.

This would make it much faster determining which object is selected (e.g. before double-clicking and with objects that are over each other) and checking the name for coding.

Also, it could show some general things like text size for labels, etc., but these are really not that neccesssary.

Thinking further, it would be great if these common properties (or even not the common ones) would be editable from the bar too. But that's approaching a Visual Studio type 'Properties' area and a workspace, too. ;)

It could potentially be too much information to fit in a status bar.

I can also see a few more things that could be useful:

1) Type of 1st control selected
2) Name of 1st control selected
3) Location of 1st control selected
4) Size of 1st control selected
5) Bounding size of all selected objects
6) current mouse position
7) # of controls selected

Perhaps a little window would be a better fit.

I would say this goes along with the workspace mentioned here    http://codecoretechnologies.com/community/index.php?topic=115.0
