Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

... in the last 5+ years. And that is not even taking into account procedurally generated/dialogs going through the PUI/XML related fgcommand APIs. pui2canvas can support all of these, and more, without requiring major C++ work, and without requiring tons of expertise. The pui2canvas approach is ...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

@Hooray, then I challenge you to strip out PUI from the compilation and provide a full CUI interface that provides 100% of the functionality of the current PUI! I say it's a mammoth task, so I'm hoping you can prove me wrong ;) @Thorsten - one of the ideas of using Qt5 is to provide dialogs that the...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

And this will involve the removal of most of the XML for the menu system (hence why Torsten was talking about QML). I guess that's news to James then... That is roughly correct, but I always imagined I’d write some code to host an XML dialog (Currently done with PUI) from Qt also. The question is i...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

You previously mentioned all your UI and multi-threading experience, and I told you more than once that many of your points are not applicable when it comes to PUI and the way it is integrated/used in FlightGear. You are mixing up too many concepts here - there is a dedicated Canvas GUI system, and ...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

Let's create the following context: ⋅  Strip out the abandoned PLIB GUI (PUI) completely from the current FG code base. ⋅  Try to interact with FG without the menus. ⋅  Try to change some of the settings. Obviously neither the Qt GUI (QUI) nor the Canvas UI (CUI) are cu...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

Sorry bugman, you don't make much/any sense - and I have really tried to interpret your postings in more than one way, regardless of your position (which is clearly pro-Qt5) - I don't seem to be able to determine what you are trying to tell us, apart from the obvious misrepresentation of facts that ...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

Therefore the transition is PUI -> QUI, not PUI to CUI (otherwise CUI competes with QUI). Competes for what? Developer resources? Aka, the people who typically code Nasal are the same people who use Qt5? That'd be news to me. Users? Maybe, but since when has that been an issue? System resources? Si...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

I've introduced the acronyms when first mentioned. And I'm using them as there are so many user interface (UI) technologies being talked about that it is quicker to simply abbreviate: GUI - graphical user interface. PUI - the PLIB GUI or Picoscopic User Interface Library. QUI - the Qt5 GUI currently...

Re: Aircraft Center | pui2canvas parser (devel-list follow-u

I not sure we are even talking about the same thing. I thought that the current CUI efforts is not designed fully replace the PUI, and hence not compete with the QUI? But the current QUI efforts are designed to completely replace PUI? Qt5 will not be mandatory, but it is currently built in and shipp...
