Hi. After a year looking about GNUe, I feel it is going into a path I like.
I had my own vision about database based development (look at
niles.sourceforge.net. I didn't work enough on it to make it usable, but it
has both similarities and differences with GNUe Forms).
I want to start slowly porting some in-house stuff. I like 0.5.0 release, but
designer is not there yet (details about bugs and wishes later), and
documentation is not useful beyond a rough idea about how doing things.
The multiblock wizard works well, I got a nice effortless master-detail form.
What else do I need?
* Lookup fields: There is a simple way to show, by example, part names besides
an entry part number? Or even picking the part in a combo?
* Reuse: I guess schemas and importing allows to define things once and use it
along a large app. Field and entry types and sizes shouln't be defined once
and again in each form. A good interface requires templates with predefined
layouts and the same buttons. But I have no idea about how doing it.
* Doing database logon with no user interaction.
* Hiding the standard toolbar and menus. Those are nice for quick hacks, but
by any means should be available in most cases.
I still didn't look at GNUe-sb (PAPO isn't ported to 0.5, and seems to do ugly
things to work with multiple tables)
I'd like eventually to do some development about layout managers. IMHO, a char
coordinates based layout is not the way to go. I see you are already aware of
it, but there are no alternate layout managers so far.
