[haiku-development] WebKit SSE2 requirement (pulkomandy)

Sun, 2014-10-05 21:45
Hello, The JavaScript interpreter in WebKit has started to make use of SSE2 features. For the previous releases, we advertised support for i586 machines, which means SSE and SSE2 was not to be used, or detected at runtime. If we want to keep this low compatibility requirement, I will have to switch our WebKit port to the plain C code version of the JavaScript interpreter. This also means we lose the JIT capabilities, which will ...

We don't have native spinners, currently. I find the way they are implemented on other systems to be rather bad (with two very small buttons to increase and decrease the value, too small for practical use). I found that I never use those small buttons, and end up entering the value manually using the keyboard, and using a BTextControl for that sounds fine. I have never liked those 90s style spinners with the micro buttons that seem to cause you to click the button opposite of the one that you want. I'm quite happy for that old style spinner to remain part of libsanta (or ...

The flag would trigger using the B_FAILURE_COLOR for the border as described above. It will be used mainly on BTextControl, which is the only control accepting freeform input from the keyboard. Does that sound like a good way to handle the problem? Or do you have better recommandations on this? ...

[haiku-development] RFC: B_INVALID flag for BControlLook (pulkomandy)

Sat, 2014-10-04 17:45
Hi, I'm implementing a date and time picker for WebKit (to be used with HTML5 date and time input types). I use a BTextControl to let the user enter the year, which is not bounded. Other values (month, hour, minutes) are implemented as BMenuFields. At first I thought of filtering input to my text field to allow only digits. This is rather difficult to implement, as we only have support for excluding characters from the allowed input range of a BTextView. ...
