/Of course you can just look into Delphis component palette and take one
/is not yet in lazarus. But since you asked me, here is my wish list for
/- Menu editor for the IDE:
/ Does not sound like a component. But it probably is. All the
/ people I asked came to the same solution:
/ The menu is always window manager specific and therefore
/ it is impossible to implement it in a useful way with the
/ LCL components. So, the menu editor will need custom drawn
/ components: TDesignerMenu, TDesignerMainMenu,
/ TDesignerMenuItem, TDesignerPopupMenu, etc.
/ They will all be descendents of TCustomControl.
This sounds very interesting to me. But I would like to have more
this "Menu editor". So if I tell you, that I will implement it, I need to
style in which it schould be writen and which files are to be changed, which
schould be created as new files ...
I would also like to know, how the updating of the lazarus source vode work.
For example : I've got the source code from the .tar file found on the
Lazarus web pages.
I've it compiled. Now, if I change something in source, I
recompile it and
works. This is good for developing it for me, becouse I don't
have the Internet
at home :( . But when developing some part like the above
mentioned, I would need
to have an advice (or opinion) to the code I write and also a
check if it is
OK. So I would like to know, if would be the best to send the
changes via e-mail
or to use some other method...
Thank you very much.
