Hi all,

| Carlos - I'm not sure if you have read any of the philosophy behind
my stuff -
| if not - look at

I have read some time ago.  I really like the approach. Sorry, I
hadn't taken more into account while thinking about the SOAP input
plugin. O:)

| as you can see from the attatched png's I've dumped today, apart
| from the SOAP editor, I've just used some stock wxPython
| examples to fill in the spaces

I like the design. Find it very intuitive (eg. 251.png SOAP input),
providing/accessing valuable patient's context information. Only i
imagine we need to add a way for targetting  the problem the progress
note belongs to and  the support for multiple SOAPs in the same
time/encounter. Maybe  adding combo of health issues and SOAP widget
like in the image but in tabs, each labeled with the problem name?

I'd like to put hands on coolaboratin and working in these GUI todo
when  final  approach is agreed.

I agree.

Best regards,

| The idea is  use widget as the key input element of the

| commented with Karsten, including with his feedback  ;) :
| ~    -It would be mainly a split  window:
| ~    A) On the right: gmEMRBrowser: allows problem selection. Only
| a new SOAP input control can be created when selecting for input a
| new problem. For future:  tree will allow more sophisticate SOAP
| navigation/edition/selection, according patient's EMR. ~    B) On
| the left:
| ~ 1. MultiSash seems the adecuate base widget for our SOAP entries.
|  It's completely implemented in python (wxPython/lib/,
|  looks really nice and is very effective splitting views.
| 2 . When a new split view is created a new instance of the target
| class is created. Perfect for us: create an instance of
| cSOAPControl and pass to it the currently selected health issue in
| the tree (we can improve selection in future).
| 3. There would be a unique pair of clear/save buttons in the
| plugin. The user must be really sure wich problem currently
| selected SOAP belongs to. Multisash provides a yellow border in the
| active split, so doesn't seem too difficult. The plugin will query
| the controls for the input and dump to the backend (interacting
| with gmClinicalRecord)
| 4. To improve usubility, only horizontal multiusash splitting will
| be allowed, disabling vertical. In that way, SOAP input controls
| will be displayed like in one column from top to bottom.
| 5. In order to allow another split SOAP creation (initially by
| dragging the sash creator, we can later improve with the + button),
| we could check that a problem in the tree is selected, and it must
| be different of the problems of the other cSOAP input views. Also,
| we can limit the total views to 3 or 4...
| 6. Regarding implementation, we could at first take
| and customize to adapt to our needs. In future we can always decide
| to extend or something to make our approach more generic...
| I attach a shot of a very first try, yet using old SOAPCtrl...(just
|  for the general idea...) We are synchronized and in contact to
| advance both and gmSOAPInputPlugin... :)
| Best regards, Carlos
