<div style="">I'm very very interested in seeing this happen. Do you have any idea how long before we might see it?<div><span class="e" id="q_11350b78fd9b97f6_1"><br><div><div>On Jun 15, 2007, at 10:59 AM, Burella Juan M. wrote:
</div><br><blockquote type="cite">In order to ease the work with our web application we have added component support for Seaside. It's what is called "AJAX Framework" out there, although we preferred not to call it "framework" nor toolkit by now. Much of the ideas of this package are based on WindowBuilder Pro, a commercial window builder that enables visual programming.
<br><br>Right now we have support for most common web controls (TextField, Panel, RadioButton, TextArea, Label, Button, Anchor, CheckBoxGroup, RadioButtonGroup, ListBox, FieldSet) and we are working on a builder tool for generate Seaside components (pages) dinamically. We call it SeasideBuilder.
<br><br>Using our package, for example, if you want to specify a ListBox of countries you have to (without the builder):<br><br>>>countryControl<br> "Private - Answer a ListBox with the countries. If panes not includes it then this is added"
<br><br> ^self <br> paneNamed: #countryList<br> ifNonePut: [ (SFListBox new)<br> printSelector: #viewerString;<br> styleClass: 'large';<br> items: self countries;
<br> label: 'País';<br> layout: self layout;<br> addItem: nil labelFrom: 'Ninguno';<br> when: #selectedChanged
<br> send: #selectedItem<br> to: self;<br> yourself]<br><br>and it's rendered with:<br><br>>>renderContentOn: html <br> "Private - Render the receiver"
<br> <br> html render: self countryControl<br><br>With the builder you'll have to pick the control you want, configure properties, preview if you want it, and finally add to a page layout tree. When the tree is already configured properly, code for the rendering and controls is compiled into the class, along with tree support for future editing with the tool, although this is under heavy developement.
<br><br>Maybe this work could be interesting for someone out there. If so, we'd have to ask our institution for permission to release a public version under an appropiate licensing (GPL, LGPL, BSD, etc). <br><br>Juan M. Burella, Hernán Morales and Norberto Manzanos, CAICYT
