In my spare time, which has been a little more than usual lately, I've |
gotten a "see if it would be possible to do" SWT Ribbon control a little
further than I had originally planned, and since it's gotten so far I
figured I might as well ask and see what people would like to see in it to
make it more useful. As I have not released any code yet (and I would like
to see it in Nebula if it passes IP review and Trademark checks and
what-not - hence me posting in the Nebula group).
I would like some feedback on what from the "Office Ribbon" people would
like to see and what makes the Office Ribbon great that could be
implemented. It seems it's a pretty popular creation from Microsoft's side
as far as those things go.
I do want to point out that this does not use any native API whatsoever, all
is pure SWT. There are native Ribbon API hooks, which of course would be
ideal, but they're not cross-platform. Microsoft's ribbon API is open
otherwise and quite impressive feature-wise as well.
To make things a little easier, I created a page with some feature details
and a bunch of screenshots showing various things, located here:
So, any feedback will be good feedback, if you feel up for it.
