Dialogs unit status?
« on: September 26, 2014, 12:10:51 pm »
Are dialogs working at all?

I create new project, set LCLWidgetType to customdrawn, drop a button on form and call ShowMessage in it's OnClick.  Run the project, click the button and... nothing is shown.

P.S. Linux Mint. Lazarus and FPC are built from trunk.

Sigh...   Run Lazarus.  Try File - Open.  So, that dialog works...
EDIT: ID Ten T error at my side...

Well, that's more useful :-)  So your problem is a specific widgetset.

Is somebody working on that? I see no activity in mailing list since 2012/2013.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, and sorry again for the tone in my original reply.  @BigChimp set me straight....

To be perfectly honest, I don't think so - not actively anyway.  As far as I'm aware CustomDrawn was created more as a proof of concept idea.

It's all open-source, so if you did want to develop it further, contributions would be welcomed.

It's alright )) I should make subject clearer.

It's all open-source, so if you did want to develop it further, contributions would be welcomed.
If I do not find another solution - I'll have to try implementing dialogs for CustomDrawn.
Here is the initial problem: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,25951.0.html
CD widgetset is the only one that does not break my plugin )))
