UI Suggestions

Postby vpnsoluk » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:40 am

It is a pain to keep visiting the toolbox for every widget.

Taking a leaf out of Labview, how about having it such that clicking on a port and dragging creates a pre-connected constant or readout entity of that type depending on if it is an input or outpur? Arrays would produce multi-line version of the same.

Some widgets are large compared to what they actually do. How about having a minimal version of each constant type widget. E.g instead of a boolean stating "True" or "False", an alternate minimised view would just show 0 or 1 or perhaps T or F.

How about a live preview of the type and content of the data on each wire, this would help diagnose problems.

1: There are short cut keys for the most common components. For instance "F" will give you a float component, "B" a boolean ect. If you look in the element section of the toolbox most of the components there have a corresponding shortcut key.

2: If you connect an integer component to a boolean output it will give you a 0,1.

3: Personally don't see a need for this, data types are very obvious in Flowstone with each having unique connectors. And for debugging it's simple just to connect your own float component to an output to view the values.
