M!Table 1.9 Beta released

Post by micsto » 24 Jul 2007, 13:51

Hi folks,

finally, after a long time of developing, the first Beta of M!Table 1.9 is
released.
You can download it here:
www.micsto.com/Centura/Download/Beta/MTbl19Beta.exe

Because of the fundamental changes in the source code, I decided to publish
a Beta first.
Any feedback is welcome!

Among others, M!Table 1.9 has a new "killer feature" called "cell mode".
In cell mode, a single cell instead of a whole row has the focus.
One can navigate between cells with the keyboard, just like in M$ Excel.
Furthermore it's possible to select individual cells and/or ranges of cells
with the mouse/keyboard.

Michael

M!Table 1.9 Beta released

This is good news. Just a coincidence, I need the cell mode for my
next project. I will test the new version against the old
implementations and will try the new feature !

Many thanks for this awesome product.

M!Table 1.9 Beta released

i have compiled and tested some apps, they work fine with the new dlls.

then i tried a new cellmode. great!
some remarks:
- in AUTO_Edit_Mode it would be nice if copy and paste without coding
(automatic)
- when in Edit mode (inputcursor is in a cell) i cannot select multiple
cells with the mouse,
- rowheight individual (not per table) would be a great enhancement.

M!Table 1.9 Beta released

thanks for your feedback.

First of all it's nice to hear that you like the new cell mode ;).

Regarding your remarks:
- Automatic copy and paste
Shouldn't be too hard to implement for the focus cell.
I'd suggest to introduce a new cell mode flag, let's say
MTBL_CM_FLAG_AUTO_COPY_AND_PASTE.
If this flag is set and:
if the user presses [Ctrl] + c, the text of the focus cell is copied into
the clipboard.
if the user presses [Ctrl] + x, the text of the focus cell is moved to the
clipboard.
if the user presses [Ctrl] + v, the text of the clipboard is copied into
the focus cell.
What's your opinion?

- Cannot select multiple cells with the mouse in edit mode
Hmm - works fine for me in the demo application ( mtbl.app ).
Could you please describe the problem a little bit more exactly?

- Individual row height
Yeah, that's what almost every M!Table user wishes ( including me ).
But unfortunately it's extremely hard to implement, because it would shock
the table control to its core and I had to reimplement almost every default
functionality. Maybe someday, when I have a lot - and I mean REALLY a lot -
of time, I'll try to implement it - but I can't promise.

good morning michael,

same for range would be great:
- copying mtable range to mpable range (for example two different table
instances)
- copying a range from excel into mtable
- copying from mtable to excel

Hi Jack,

thanks for your feedback.

Regarding your wish:
Because I don't have much time at the moment, I have to restrict my
activities to bugfixes and/or requests regarding the new features.
