Hello everyone, ForeUI V2.35 is available now :-)  This new version makes the Spinner (or say: stepper) element interactive, which allow you to specify its value in simulation.  Also this version introduces some new hotkeys to accelerate the manipulation.  7 bugs are fixed.

Interactive Spinner (Stepper)

This element existed from the first version of ForeUI, but it was not interactive until now.  You can enter all allowed values of the spinner (one row one value), and specify the current value in editing mode.  Then you can really interact with the spinner in simulation, you can click the small up and down buttons to change its value, you can also retrieve its current value via the “value” property of the element.

You will find a new property for the current value of the spinner:

New Hotkeys

From this version ForeUI supports the hotkeys below:

  • Ctrl+W (Command+W in Mac OS): Close the current editing plot.
  • Ctrl+I (Command+I in Mac OS): Show/hide image dock.
  • Ctrl+L (Command+L in Mac OS): Show/hide display controller.
  • Ctrl+E (Command+E in Mac OS): Show/hide element selector.
  • Ctrl+G (Command+G in Mac OS): Show/hide global property manager.
  • Enter or F2:  Start editing the selected element.

New ComboBox Property

Like the spinner, the ComboBox element supports the “selectedText” property now.
