New Tab Order with TabMover.lsp
« Reply #15 on: August 24, 2005, 06:13:17 PM »
Thanks for the kind words Will. :)
Glad you like it.

My plan was to add the DCL installer code so it will install the DCL file for you.
That is when the tweaking is done. And that may be now.

Lots of people looking but not much feed back. I though more people would like a
tool like this. I go so tired of the "Move To End" method. That's why I wrote the
routine.

The Multi-select is kinda cool. Have you tried to select two groups at once using
the Ctrl key? When you move them the groups are combined and placed in the destination
leaving the unselected item in place. i got a kick out of it. :oops:

I'll post the final version over in 'Show Your Stuff' when i add the DCl loader.

Thanks to you and Crank for the help.  Works in 2004 also.

Hi Alan,
I'm one of those looking, but I haven't had a need to try it. Most of my projects are setup with the correct number of layouts, so I usually wouldn't need something like this. I've been watching, though, just to see what you've come up with. I enjoy watching the evolution of a project, even when I don't have any input for it.

It looks like you've got yourself a winner, based on what Will & Crank have said.

When I do get some time to play, I will be checking it out though. :)

Thanks for the input Jeff,
It is interesting how varied the drawing environment are from user to user.
Like Will with some 50 layouts & you with the layouts already set up.
I usually use a template drawing with most of the layouts already there and
in the proper order but there seems to always be that exception. I don't expect
to use the routine but once or twice a month which may not justify writing it.
But it will be enjoyable when i do use it just because the other method of moving
layouts always irritated me. :?

See ya..

I don't have a need for such a utility but I downloaded it and took it for a spin just for fun. Pretty cool stuff Alan. For those that draft all day and use a lot of tabs I can see how this would be very useful. Excellent work!

Discardable minor suggestion: Putting the 'Hint text' at the top of the dialog will make it more visible, as one's eye is already drawn to the top of the list box to view the tab names. As is one kinda looks up and down.



Cheers and again, nice work.

:)

Thanks for the test drive and the suggestion.
You have an artistic flair in your code & your dialog.
I like your suggestion so I'll use it. :)

The new multi-select version is great.

Found a bug though: If you select several tabs with 1 unselected line between the groups and press 'down' the selected tabs disappear from the list...

OK, posted the code over here http://www.theswamp.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=79791#79791

Added the auto DCL file creator so delete the old DCL file.
Also added the Numeric sort routine, see this for more on that routine. http://www.theswamp.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6474
