OpenBMD freeware - The Latest Versions History
0.2.6 PreAlp Dec 29, 2011 New Release · Compiled the DistrictList file to include over 18,000 official districts,
· alternate spellings and volume numbers.
Added two main helper methods to aid district transcription:
· Districts are suggested as they are typed. Tabbing out of
· a cell with a suggested district will auto-complete the district and
· volume number in the respective columns.
· Pressing the down arrow key on a cell with a suggested district will
· call a pop-up menu showing a list of suggested districts. Selecting one
· will auto-complete the district and volume number in the respective
· columns
· Districts which aren't found in the district list file can be typed
· manually.
· The manifest file now directs the packager to include the district
· file is packaged as part of the distribution.
· Fixed the get_district_picklist method - it now converts the string
· 'year' to a numeral to get at the appropriate volume set.
· Manually set the column widths to optimise the space provided.
0.2.5 PreAlp Nov 14, 2011 New Release · Version control is now handled using GIT.
· Added a method called 'editor_text' to gather in real time, what district the user is typing into the active cell editor. This information will be used to generate a filtered list of districts for the user to select from.
· The 'check order' method now properly looks at forenames and ignores the forename cell on the last row if it is blank - i.e. the user has typed a new entry.
0.2.4 PreAlp Oct 24, 2011 New Release Continued work on the district picklist:
· Gathetered together the 'official' district and volume numbers from the FreeBmd site for all districts beginning with the letter A.
· Looked at the best way to present this district picklist to the user to select from. So far the options I've looked at are using the built-in 'GridCellChoiceEditor' (a type of combobox) or to have a custom pop-up menu triggered on each keystroke.
