Re: BOOPSI Menu Class: first update

I begin to see that catering for the varying user expectations will be far more difficult than actually writing the class :)

A week or so later, I can now see a couple of problems with my current callback approach. For example, having to provide a separate callback function for each menu item is probably too imposing. Surely with commands like "Quit" you'd prefer to just perform a simple operation (such as leaving the event loop) instead of writing a dedicated function for it?


As you can see, things are evolving and get changed on the fly. This is normal. What is important is that we discuss it all here and compare ideas to find optimum solutions. If there's something I really hate about AmigaOS4 development it's the fact that sometimes sub-par solutions get implemented behind the scenes, without any feedback from the programmers' camp (the Application Library being a prime example).

As one of the coordinators of the OpenAmiga.org project I'd like to encourage participating programmers to use this forum, inform about their projects' progress, and present their implementation ideas for public scrutiny. This is the only way to make OpenAmiga.org helpful and relevant.
