ASCII Designer


  • v0.5.2:
    • Add translation support.
  • v0.5.1:
    • TK: add add_setup toolkit option (similar to setup_style but keeps the defaults)
    • ObsList: add tuple indexing (experimental).
  • v0.5.0:
    • TK/TTK: Add GenericVar supporting automatic conversion and validated-hook; opt-in automatic update of control’s invalid state. See TK Textbox / Combobox conversion + validation
    • introduce Toolkit.widget_classes attribute, allowing injection of custom widget subclasses
    • export EventSource, CancelEvent, Invalid, nullable, gt0, ge0 on package-level
  • v0.4.4:
    • Fix edit-widget placement issues in Tk Treeedit
    • Treeedit subwidgets are now ttk (i.e. stylable)
    • Treeedit autoedit_added property
    • Fix icon “inheritance” on Windows
  • v0.4.3:
    • Fix f_icon not working on Windows (with .ico files).
    • Tk (choice only) dropdown: fire event immediately on selection, not on FocusOut / Return press
    • Change virtual-value handling of placeholders. Placeholder “remembers” and returns what was assigned to it. Also, when assigned an unbuilt AutoFrame instance, it will automatically build it, reducing boilerplate for the typical embedding case.
  • v0.4.2:
    • Fix 2 issues in ListBindingTk related to editable lists.
  • v0.4.1:
    • Make tk_treeedit key bindings a class property (list) that can be modified. Fix crash on Windows due to nonexisting Keysym.
  • v0.4.0:
    • Refactor internal implementation of List Binding. Architecture simplified to ObsList (data model) and ListBinding classes.
    • Add basic editing capabilites to List / Tree view.
  • v0.3.4:
    • Add setup_style parameter to ToolkitTk for custom style setup
    • Fix #6: for some Tk controls, value change via code would trigger the control’s autoconnected handler.
  • v0.3.3:
    • Qt now depends on qtpy, not PyQt4 anymore.
    • set_toolkit can set Options. Add font_size and ttk_theme option for Tkinter.
    • Can set window icon by f_icon property
  • v0.3.2:
    • Add “ttk” toolkit (which is actually ToolkitTk with a new option). YMMV.
    • Add f_on_build and f_on_show hooks
    • Fix several bugs in control parser, esp. concerning labels.
  • v0.3.1: Qt Toolkit menu accelerators
  • v0.3.0: menus added (TBD: accelerators for Qt menus); fix Qt List crash
  • v0.2.0: rework of the list model
