Don't artificially limit SpiderBasic's gadgets

by the.weavster Wed Jun 12, 2019 7:56 am

There are some really excellent HTML5 widgets that could be added to SpiderBasic, please don't let the desire to maintain compatibility with PureBasic artificially limit the capabilities of SpiderBasic.

Whew! Where do I start? ;)

as the.weavster wrote: In principle, the widgets provided by the Dojo Tookit are artificially restricted to make them compatible with the PureBasic gadgets.

Take for example the ListIconGadget, which is based on the dGrid. The dGrid has among other things a sorting of the rows out of the box by clicking on the column header. It is incomprehensible to me that this functionality is not available in SpiderBasic.

The dGrid additionally has some very nice features, e.g:

https://dgrid.io/js/dgrid/test/Tree.html
https://dgrid.io/js/dgrid/test/Editor_more_widgets.html

and Frozen Columns, Custom Cell Renderer, etc., etc., etc.

It would be nice if we had easy access to these functionalities.

It is rarely possible to run a PureBasic code without extensive changes in SpiderBasic anyway. For this reason, I wouldn't limit the SpiderBasic gadgets in favor of compatibility with PureBasic.

Fred, break the chains of PureBasic compatibility and unleash the power of SpiderBasic! :D

Perhaps introduce SpiderBasic specific parameters with SpiderBasic specific constants: #SB_SomeSBConstant so that you do not "pollute" the PureBasic namespace?
