Feeature request for texteditor.gadget and string.gadget

Post by samo79 »

As i'm currently following the development of AmigaAMP as betatester it comes out the need for an external help for atleast a couple of unresolved problems related to the OS4's system gadgets, so i think a feature request need to be done.
Explaination:during the development of AmigaAMP, Thomas stumbled with a few problems during his implementation of new info window, so what we need is:

1) string.gadget has got a feature called
"A popup menu is available accessed from the right mouse button while
the gadget is active, and this gives easy mouse access to the Cut, Copy
and Paste functions. This functionality is available when the mouse
pointer is within the string gadget when the right button is selected."

This feature should be implemented in texteditor.gadget, too.

2) And another feature request for both of them:
Copy should still work even if the gadgets are set to GA_ReadOnly. Of
course in this case there would be no Cut / Paste any more.

At the moment I have to set them to read/write for Copy to work at all.
As a side effect you actually can fully edit them but the changes are
never saved. This is because it's just an info window and not a real tag
editor.

Thanks

This sounds good.

At work I use a .NET based application that has this feature and it's incredibly useful.
