Widget Wizard

Post by mwieder » Tue Jun 13, 2017 8:55 pm

I just posted Widget Wizard to revOnline.

Widget Wizard is a utility to help in the creation of LiveCode extensions. You can define some simple parameters, then click the Create Widget button and Widget Wizard will create a new folder containing a single .lcb file. You can build and test the widget in the IDE's Extension Builder, and by default it will just log messages to the log window. You can then edit the .lcb file with the code for your widget.

Hope this helps.

Figured I'd better attach the latest build here.
This is build 1.0.1 after Hermann and I discussed some options.

Thanks Mark,

a very good beginning for a new project, helps with all the necessary setup and handlers.
A real headstart.

Kind regards
Bernd

Hi Mark,

your widget wizzard is an extraordinary solution. Hope now that more community members take the first hurdle, with the help of your stack.

Also, the scripts of this stack have their own beauty, demonstrating your experiences.

Also who's not interested in LCB may have a look at these scripts. You will find even such special things as connecting in background to a github repository of handlers.

WOW! I should say you do have a problem.
Somehow the text field fonts got set to Wingdings.
Hang on - I'll fix that up.

Update: done. download version 1.0.2.

Not sure what happened with the font thing in the text fields.
I certainly didn't set WingDings as a font intentionally.

Update: Oops. Just checked and it was my fault after all. Long story, but at least now I know.
I promise I'll be good and not do that again.
