It is possible to copy actions between objects.

It would be great feature and save a lot of time if when copying actions with references to control X from control X to contorl Y, it will auto-convert all references to Y.

Pretty much the same as you clone and object and all action references to the original object are replaced with the clone reference.

Hi Kfir Dadosh,

Actually ForeUI already support this, it is the behavior of element copy/paste. If you copy element X (with action reference to itself) and paste it as element Y, you will see all actions in Y have the references to Y instead of X.


I know about this copy & paste feature (I called it clone).

The thing is that usually you create all the GUI mockup without any actions and only then add them. I prefer not to replace my controls with the copied ones, but rather copy only the actions. Maybe a special paste (ctrl+shift+V) would do the same replacement as done when copying the object.

  1. Currently we can copy/paste actions in the action editor, so maybe a special paste in the action editor can do the trick.

That would be great!
