NEW UPDATE AVAILABLE
of the Eclipse perspectives. It provides a high flexible and
complete configurable docking MDI solution with a nice user
IDE (see www.eclipse.org). This IDE works with perspectives,
which gives the developer different views on his source.
the java perspective. This perspective has some views like
project explorer, tasks, ... But if you are debugging the
source, Eclipse switches to the debug perspective. Here you can
see other views like breakpoints, variables or the running
needs for his current work. Cause I like this concept, I was
inspired to implement this possibility for Visual Basic
developers. And this is also the final goal for this
apps. Just have a look at the "VbDoc" example in the download
and see how simply it is to work with perspectives and which
surplus values you get.
Version 0.3.x (December 2004)
Different sets of layouted views (forms) to switch
between different perspectives. Perspectives descripe the
presentation of theire views.
Views are representing simple Visual Basic standard
forms and could be accessed by a unique view id. Note thar
there could only be one view instance visible on each
perspective. When the user changes the perspective, no view
will be unloaded. Only the position and the visibility of
views will be changed. So if the user switches back to the
first perspective the layout will not be lost or
Views are layouted on the perspective by folders. The
sense of a folder is to provide the ability to show views
stacked together with other views. There is only one view
visible for each folder. The visible view could be canged
Show, activate and close views on
the active perspective by theire id. You can also
maximize and restore views / editors.
Drag & Drop
Drag a view while press and hold the left mouse button
on views caption. If you hold the button a while (500 ms) a
focus rectangle will appear. Now you can select an other
folder to drop the view by releasing the mouse button. You
can also create new folders if you drop the view on the
top, left, bottom or right of a folder. The new folder will
appear in the relation you drop the view.
Office 2003 Color Scheme
This scheme has different color styles for
classic, metallic (silver), homestead
(olive) and normal (blue) mode.
Version 0.8.33 (January 2005)
New Color Scheme
New Windows XP Color Scheme as a replacement for the
Office 2003 Color Scheme.
Custom Color Schemes
Developers can set custom colors by IScheme
Open, Activate, Close
Folders now have a caption which shows the name of the
If you drop a view to the outside of the perspective a
floating window will apear.
Auto Hide Folder Tabs
The folders tabs are invisible if there is only one
view on it.
For better distinguish between folders and the editor
area the following tab orientation were set:
Editor Tabs Orientation
The orientation of the editor area tabs changed to top
I reduced the flickering on resize a perspective by a
new rendering method.
Optimized Performence on layouting perspectives.
Refresh Layout after remove a maximized folder
ShowView creates a new folder if perspective has none
Version 0.8.91 (30. January 2004)
New buttons on folder caption to maximize / restore the
folder and to close a view.
Version 0.8.92 (31st January 2005)
Caption button became a hover and pressed style
Tabs now have navigation buttons (show previous and
next view). The editor area tabs also got a close editor
New perspective methods: NextEditor() +
Set the main window as the new owner of floating
If you move floating windows to mouse cursor doesn't
position at the middle of the folder caption anymore.
Version 0.8.95 (1st February 2005)
Auto hide and disable tab navigation buttons
Fixed classic window style.
Version 0.8.96 (2nd February 2005)
Fixed floating windows bug on closing a perspective and
open it again.
Set folders as floating windows at application
Drop multiple views on a floating window.
New example application "VbDoc" (creates a html
documentation of your Visual Basic 6.0 projects).
Version 0.8.97 (4th February 2005)
Fixed a bug on switching between perspectives when a view is maximized.
New perspective property ColorScheme to select a color scheme (Windows XP, Office 2003, Custom).
You can define colors for the custom scheme with different properties in Visual Basic IDE.
Version 0.8.98 (7th February 2005)
I made the perspective control alignable so you are able to drop it on a MDI form.
Caption buttons are drawn like the caption gradients.
I have fixed the ShowViewCaptions perspective property. Now the view caption
won't be displayed if you set this property to false. But the views are
still dragable. Just drag it by its tab or double click on a tab to maximize /
restore the view. If caption buttons are hidden the view navigation is displayed
to close a view.
I renamed the ShowViewCaptions perspective property to ViewCaptions.
View Caption Icon
I have implemented a new property ViewCaptionIcons to show or hide an icon on
the left side of the caption.
Floating windows can float over it self and a floating rect will be drawn if you
drag a view to the middle of the editor area.
Version 0.8.99 (11th February 2005)
You can define an active view for each folder.
The active view of a folder will be stored if you switch to an other
perspective and come back to the first perspective.
Double click the views caption to undock a view and make it a floating window.
If you move the main window without to resize it, the drag and drop of the
splitter bars were drawn wrong. I have fixed this bug.
I add more comments to describe the methods, but still not all.
