Hi Boki,

 

this is my first try using NextInspector and I run into several problems. Most urgent: is it possible to register some kind of property editor to edit complex types such as TStrings e.g.?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I suggest using ButtonInspectorNode (4th icon in toolbar inside Nodes Editor).

Then, after you add it There is OnButtonClick where you can open dialog (for example with TMemo to edit string). Then, you simply pass Text property back to :

NextInspector61.EndEditing;
NextInspector61.SelectedNode.AsString := MyDialogForEditingStrings.MyMemoControl.StringsText;
or if Inspector is still in edit mode, you can access to the InplaceEdit property:

  if NextInspector61.EditingNode <> nil then
  begin
    NextInspector61.InplaceEdit.Text := s;
  end;
Hope that this helps.

Thank you for your quick reply. Unfortunately there is no EndEditing in my version (the current one, I guess, downloaded yesterday), but a protected method named EndEdit. I already wrote a small cracker class to avoid changing your original source (for assigning text to value when the return-key is pressed). What I would like to get is displaying a different text than the underlying value in case of comlex types (like Delphi's object inspector does), so that e.g. the text "TStrings" is displayed and value contains the text itself.

Anyway, I will try your suggested way.

Hi,

Your installed version is probably v5. In v6 I have added OnGetValue for this purpose, so other Value than one stored in Value property can be used for display.

If you can use v6 this will help.

In v5 I don't have such property but there is also ButtonItem with similar event (OnButtonClick).

Hi,

I just updated NextInspector with couple of new features and bug fixes. Please re-download if you have time, there is also improvements on OnGetValue too.
