Long time, no chat.
Still working on beta 3--progress comes in fits and starts. A couple of improvements already incorporated are:
Object creation is now taking the short-form ("text",top,left,width, height)
Only non-default properties are written to the script. So any properties you don't explicitly change are not written to the script. This item, as well as the last one, really cuts down on the size of the UI generation portion of the script.
Customizable object borders so that you can specify (or not) the tags around the object, e.g. ;******** control name ********
The big one of course is opening existing scripts. The work is continuing--I'm slogging through as best I can. It shouldn't be much longer now. Still have a couple of choices to make regarding how comprehensive the parsing will be. As long as most scripts can be read and opened, that's as best as we can hope for. There will be some scripts that will need reworking, but for the most part it should be a straightforward operation. As soon as this piece is done then beta 3 will be done. I'm not going to bother putting any other features, etc. into it because most everything else can wait for beta 4.
Happy holidays everyone!
