New GUI enhancements for tablewindow (TD3.1)

Post by Dave Rabelink » 12 Mar 2005, 16:02

Seems there is a huge bug in the new GUI enhancement for tablewindows.

When a cell is treated with one of the new VisTbl* functions it will
stick on that cell location. So when sorting or inserting items in the
table, the cell does not sort or move with it.

In my case this makes the new GUI enhancements features useless.
For static tables with no sorting or afterwards inserting/deleting of
items it will work.

BUT

anothing annoying thing is when the new functions are used on tables,
the old tbl functions for setting cell colors does not work. So by
setting only the first column to bold text, the other columns can not
be treated with the older tbl functions for setting text colors.

I can not imagine this is a feature.
Or is it ?

I have this problem logged as a bug in January 2004.
The answer was:
"Log-A-Bug has reviewed the issue listed below and determined that the
behavior is as designed. No fix is forthcoming."

I also think, this makes the new GUI enhancements useless.

As designed ?

I wonder who designed this and really thinks it is an enhancement ?

Gupta, shame on you !

I'm using it already ;)

Gupta could learn from these projects like M!Table which actually does
what it promises : it enhances table windows with usable and working
functionality. It took me 5 minutes to make my tables for file version
information on networks using nice colors and fonts with your M!Table.

It took me quite more valuable time looking for the strange bugs the
GUI enhancements for table windows introduced by Gupta.

Gupta not only should learn, but should integrate them as they are and pay
some of our contribution to Michael and others who are doing this for free.
