28787 - Add description field to Project Chooser
I would really like to see the project chooser include a project description. I don’t want to file a new feature request since this one already exists but I’d like to add my support for it.
Is there a way to elevate a feature request by voting for it?
The example projects included with Xojo would benefit from a simple description as the purpose of many of these projects are not obvious.
[quote=385988:@Emile Schwarz]1. simple addition:
Add a field to display informations the developer can type about (what [s]he want)that project
- complex version
Display data from the project:
Number of windows
Number of Class,
Number of Modules,
Number of File Type Set,
Number of dropped images,
- 1: Display the App Icon?
Wes, you can add that case to your ‘My Top Cases’ to vote for it.
Also the example projects could include a Note in it to explain a little what the example is doing. I don’t understand what some examples do or if anything has to add/change to make them work.
Sasha: it will be a bit difficult 'cause icons can be added after the build (Post Build Script).
Alberto: and in the end, Xojo will decide.
In this case, you won’t see it in the Project Chooser
Thanks for that info. I added “28787 - Add description field to Project Chooser” to “My Top Cases”.
That is exactly why I want this feature. The example projects need some sort of synopsis attached to them to indicate what they demonstrate specifically.
I really like the way Xojo lets you attach a “Note” to items within a project. I find that Notes are a great way to keep technical data and documentation relating to controls, classes etc. near the objects themselves.
Adding a little more meta-data about the entire project that displays in the project chooser would be a logical extension of this idea.
