PropertyBasedControls: SetPropertyControlValue() overview


Recommended Posts

paint.net SetPropertyControlValue.pdfSetPropertyControlValue(object propertyName, object controlPropertyName, object propertyValue)

allows to change some values of PropertyBasedControls which can not be set in the constructor.

This method should be called in OnCreateConfigUI().

 

I compiled a table to summarize the effect of SetPropertyControlValue() to all the PropertyBase controls. T

The forum sw does not support rotated text so the column headers are a little bit difficult to read. 😉

Please tell if there are errors or if you miss something in the table.

 

Link to the latest version of the table as pdf: paint.net SetPropertyControlValue.pdf

FileTypes String[] (10) 35     no no no no no no no no no no no no no YES no
                                       
Notes   (1)     Footnote must be used for Description. Description sets the CheckBox text.
    (2)     Footnote must be used for Description but is not implemented. Description sets the link text (not the link).
    (3)     Not sure if the type is correct. But using SetPropertyControlValue with this type has no effect
    (4)     False: 1 line, True: 4 lines
    (5)     Not implemented. I’m not sure why this is missing.
    (6)     Not available for controls
    (7)     Sets Description for the cases where Description is used to set an other text.
    (8)     Always wraps around
    (9)     If no FileTypes are provided the ‚All Files (*.*)‘ will still appear in the ‘Select File‘ dialog
    (10)     Provide an array of file extensions. I.e. new string[]{"exe“, "txt“}
    (11)     AngleChooser has no slider. I would prefer one plus a new ControlInfoPropertyNames.SliderShow setting.

 

 

 

I collected this during my refactoring of OptionBasedLibrary to make sure that OptionBasedControls support the functionality of PropertyBasedControls.

Hope this info is also useful for you.

 

OK, the table looks different while you are editing the topic...

18.4.2021: I copied @Ego Eram Reputotable, fixed the error mentioned by @toe_head2001, and fixed the Value Type of all SliderSmallChange, SliderLargeChange, and UpDownIncrement variants to double (a simple int raises an exception).

Copy of the table removed again the formatting of the table, but the other fixes are in.

Excellent table @midora. Thank you!

 

Let's see if we can fiddle with the table styling...

 

<snipped>

 

It's not brilliant :mrgreen:. As you noticed, the editing window is different from the forum view.

You actually can use UpDownIncrement with the AngleChooser. It applies to the numBox on the control.

You are right. Also the value type of all SliderSmallChange, SliderLargeChange, and UpDownIncrement variants must be double to avoid a cast exception.

 

@Ego Eram ReputoThanks for adapting the table view, looks much better now. I don't know how to do it in the editor. But as always the text is rotated in the wrong direction (like on your English book spines) 😉

No problem. I did the styling by editing the HTML & CSS. Its a Mod thing :)

 

Changing the writing direction in the vertical aligned cells is more trouble than it is worth. You'll have to get used to it :mrviolet:

 

Do you want me to port the styling into your origial post?

@Ego Eram Reputo"that'll do pig. That'll do." 😉  If there is some spare time...

 

I exported the latest version of the table from LibreOffice to pdf and added it to the first post.

 

But how can we avoid that everytime I'm editing the first post the formatting of the table will be destroyed?

Next time I will add a second post just containig tables.

 

I detected the dark mode theme at the bottom of the forum page. The table looks more ugly. Some texts are not showing in white but I'm not able to detect a rule why this is the case...

For something like this that needs to be revised, a markdown file (*.md) on GitHub is probably a better choice. For editing markdown, I've been using an app called Typora and it seems to be quite good.

Thanks for the tip. I will check this out. In the moment I think it is better to replace the table with an image to avoid the issues. The pdf can be used for copy/paste.

Another option is to publish it as a Google Sheet.

 

I still prefer local solutions. No problem to share and publish. But Google closed so many tools over the years...
