Okay. These features probably are more like pike dreams, but here they are:
1. When simulating – and with my IE security setting at medium-high (which I don’t want to change), the ‘Script or ActiveX’ is always initially blocked. I have to unblock it, and then hit confirm (with stupid IE8) before the stimulation can be run. That’s a real pain. Is there a way for ForeUI to provide an ‘add-in’ feature at the time of installation, so that IE won’t block it all the time (kind’a like Adobe Add-in, which allows ID to open up an Adobe document seamlessly).
2. When simulating, I often see minor errors, and I go back to ForeUI and make the changes. Unfortunately, these changes aren’t refected in the simulation that is already running in IE – even if I do a refresh. To see the new changes, and have to run another simulating, which opens up another IE tab. So, in the end, lots of IE tabs get opened. Is there a way to have the simulation become ‘aware’ of changes made in the ForeUI plot, so that the changes can be seen with a a simple IE ‘refresh?’
3. Will you considering providing a simulation runtime down the road, so I can just e-mail the plot to a client and have them run the simulation using IE (or some other browsers). Of course, the runtime won’t allow any changes to the plot – just viewing. This feature would be really helpful for showing mock-ups to long-distant clients via telephone conference. They can just run it, and I can walk them through over the phone.
Thanks for your considerations!
To avoid the simulation being blocked by IE, you need to make a configuration in IE. The detailed steps are in this thread:
BTW ForeUI will use your default web browser to run the simulation, so you can also change your default web browser to run simulation in other browsers.
As for the second request, I understand the need but it is very difficult to implement. Once the DHTML is exported, it has no link to the plot file.
The 3th request is a wonderful idea. Currently ForeUI can run within web browser (as a Java applet), maybe a simplified viewer can also run in this way. There is another way: automatically export plot to DHTML in server and allow user to view it in web browser. We will consider that.
Thanks Xavier. The first suggestion was helpful. Don’t worry about the 2nd. I know that’s a tough one No worries. I look forward to your implementation of the 3rd request down the road.
