I have a bunch of guys (employees of a customer) that refuse to work
with the GNUstep version of our enterprise application and instead
would like to keep their Mac because of the following reasons:
• Selecting multiple rows in a tableview just by dragging down works in
GNUstep. However, as soon as the mouse reaches the bottom of the
tableview, the tableview should scroll down and continue selecting rows
until the user releases the mouse button. At least that is what the Mac
does and what users expect. This does not work in GNUstep (at least not
in my version which is already a couple of months old). Has this been
worked on recently?
• We use drawers for a bunch of things. In our version of GNUstep, they
are simply not available/usable, so the GNUstep version of our app
lacks some functionality. We have tried to avoid drawers as much as
possible but there some things that can only be realized reasonably in
a drawer, e.g. privileges of a database object or the outline of a
document,.... Is anybody successfully using drawers in a GNUstep
application (Etoile)? Any screenshots of the latest code
(GNUstep/Etoile)? I would look into that by myself but since this also
requires artwork (goes beyond my set of skills)... Here is a screenshot
of how a drawer looks on MacOSX.
The round edges are probably not that easy to implement but they really
make this look neat.
• There's already a Busy.app to emulate the hour glass of MacOSX for a
not responding application. Unfortunately I have never been able to get
this to work on Solaris. I will install and retry that with a more
recent version of Solaris but if anybody has this already running I
would be glad to hear how and on what version of Solaris. :-)
Thanks to all for the great work on GNUstep/Etoile!
