[RFE] Enhancing Backgrounds

Edgar J. De Cleene-3
Folks:
We don't have Gradient fills or individual background fills for each
project.
Any like this idea ?
Could made as Sunday Squeak ?

Re: [RFE] Enhancing Backgrounds

Each Project object has a ResourceManager object and that has a
resourceMap (a dictionary it seems). I do not know if this could be
used for backgrounds or is meant for other purposes. Needs to be
checked.

Further I remember that there is the option that each project has its
own background, searching

Re: [RFE] Enhancing Backgrounds

I know this.

What I can't do (still) is having GradientFills for all projects, not just
the current one.

This is for have the green degradee background as in 3.10.2 ,k but for any
projec.

And how to have a different background for each.
I like wood and any shop selling woods potentially have a catalog of
pictures.
A easy solution could be have a collection of Form of pictures and select
from the list.
Maybe some wish made money with a huge instructive woods catalog with
descriptions  or use for each, etc.
A "WoodSqueakApp"

You mean a menu entry to set a global GradientFills for all projects in one go?

En realidad, no te entiendo, a qué te refieres (interpretando tu
estilo de inglés)

¿Podría escribir sus requisitos en español?

yo quiero

1) ....
2) ....
3) .....

Luego traducimos al inglés y podemos verificar

a) si ya está allí pero la gente no sabe cómo usarlo
o
b) lo que se necesita para agregarlo.

Supongo que podemos implementarlo fácilmente para 5.2.

Saludos cordiales

I am not sure if I have understood your question properly, but the
facility already exists in Squeak 5.2alpha:

* Open a new Morphic Project
* Press ESC to bring up world menu -> appearance
* Select "set gradient color ..."
* Verify background color changing to gradient.
* Revert to home project (Previous Project)
* Reenter project
* Verify that the gradient background is restored.
* Save project into a file.
* Quit and Restart image
* Load project back from file.
* Verify that the gradient background is restored.

Thanks, Subbu for the description of the use case.

It seems to me that there are a lot of steps involved.

Maybe there is a simpler way.

Yes, we need to identify the problem(s), the gap(s) so to say which
have to be filled in....

Re: [RFE] Enhancing Backgrounds

Hannes Hirzel
Hello Subbu

I did the test as you describe. But at point 3 I got stuck.

1. Open a new Morphic Project
2. Press ESC to bring up world menu -> appearance
3. Select "set gradient color ..."

I do not see this menu entry: "set gradient color ..."
(see screen shot)


4. Verify background color changing to gradient.
5. Revert to home project (Previous Project)
6. Reenter project
7. Verify that the gradient background is restored.
8. Save project into a file.
9. Quit and Restart image
10. Load project back from file.
11. Verify that the gradient background is restored.

Maybe this is an issue of project settings?

When I start 5.2 wish to have same look of 3.10.
Try to have the fill on each project and learn actually you could have Form
no any Gradient for all projects

Yes, this works and I use it.
What I means is

Setup World background globally.
Each time you made a new project, the choosen background shows if was a
Form.
A solid color or a Picture converted to Form.
I (still) do not found how setup a GradientFill globally

Re: [RFE] Enhancing Backgrounds

Now I understand.
The question is where it the GradientFill information stored. The
project local one and the one used for new projects.

Attached is a diagram of an object of class Project with the
collaborating objects.

The next diagram shows the result where the  GradientFill information is stored.

So now it is about tracing how the PasteUpMorph used for the world
  http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1816
object is intialized.

Then it is about providing a different initialisation value....

Very nice and valuable.
I propose having BabySRE included.
Or at less parts which we know works well in 5.2
