Graphical view component editing


  • Hi,
    Creating and editing custom components would greatly enhance and fasten view editing.
    A component could be edited the same way a view can be edited, except that point mapping would be with "component virtual points", and when adding the component to a view, these virtual points could be mapped to real points.
    Is it implementable? Am I missing something with which it can already be done?
    Thanks,
    Greg


  • Hi Greg,

    This was in fact considered, but was evaluated to have a complexity level that can only be described as hideous. As i recall, conceptually, it appears hierarchical, but in the browser it would need to be flattened into HTML. This makes for a lot of problems in the view editing pages.

    So, yes, it can probably be done, but it would be ugly.
