Embedded designer
« on: March 10, 2020, 05:05:18 pm »
Since Sparta is no longer functional/maintained, we decided to backport CT's excellent form designer(r.62735). You can test it with Lazarus trunk:
1. Svn update/git pull
2. Recompile package ideintf($(Lazarus)/components/ideintf/ideintf.lpk)
3. Rebuild IDE
4. Go to Tools->Options->Environment->Embedded designer and check "Enable embedded desinger"

Important:
Please avoid any drama in this thread, if you have issues with CT, take it somewhere else. This thread is about the designer and nothing else.

@GetMem and in general:
You may have issues with po files, so do a clean check out.
(I ran into this today)
A clean check out builds and works.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I never commit po files. I have nothing to do with translations.

It is merely a warning for side effects. The improvement is appreciated.

Hello.
You did a great job.

I tested the package and it seems to work very well. Coming up I will do more tests with more complex projects. I tried to enable it and disable it and it behaved correctly.
I hope it is adopted in the next version of Lazzarus, I think it is very useful for projects that use many forms.

However, I did not understand what CT is and the drama related to it.

Looks great and seems to work. Just the size of the scrollbars are a bit wired. They seem to show the remainig space from the top left of the windows to the bottom right of the screen.

Some forms did not get recognized. If i press F12 the form gets opened. Another F12 then doesn't bring back the source.

Thanks, but I only did the backport. It wouldn't be fair to take credit for other peoples work.

I'm glad you like it. Thanks for testing.

In this particular case ignorance is bliss. Believe me you lose nothing. If still interested you can do a forum search.

Looks nice on Lazarus 2.1.0 r62735M FPC 3.3.1 i386-win32-win32/win64

BTW: I have removed Sparta package first.

PS: F12 works for me (tested with a simple design) in both directions

I noticed the scrollbar too. It can be fixed later. For now we wish to see how stable it is with different widget sets, Laz/FPC versions.

Here we go :) . Lazarus/ FPC version please. Are you using custom forms?

The F12 issue only happens on unrecognized forms.

Thanks for testing. It worked for me too with win32/64, qt and gtk2. Others tested with qt5 and also worked fine.
