|Summary||0003690: TJvOutlookBarPage: Support for properties - tag, name|
|Description||Add properties tag and name to TJvOutlookBarPage, so it could be used the same way as a TComponent.|
Please add following code to TJvOutlookBarPage:
procedure SetName(const Value: string);
property Name: string read FName write SetName;
property Tag: integer read FTag write FTag;
procedure TJvOutlookBarPage.SetName(const Value: string);
if FName <> Value then begin
FName := Value;
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||I'm not too sure about this. TJvOutlookBarPage is a TCollectionItem and I can't recall any collection item ever having a name or a tag. If we were to do this for this one, why not for the others?|
For me the OutlookBar is of Type Menu, but only contains one Level.
Menu's with Items.
I need an ID for every level (here: Page) to identify the object.
Normally I identify an object by name, sometimes with some extra information in the tag.
In the moment there is no property for this purpose.
So I add name and tag and can use it without knowing the type of the object.
||Ok, I understand it better. Adding Name and/or Tag is not desirable, the common and recommended way to do this is to use a linked object, through the LinkedObject property. I propose to add this property.|
I create Menu's with an abstract factory pattern, partly based on property names.
So here is the structure comparing for menus:
All those structures are created dynamically from the same configuration file, based on needings of the application.
If the feature is not possible than I have to maintain my source code changes.
The basic problem with all TCollectionItems is and was how to identify the object.
The feature is definitely possible, but via a linked object:
(OutlookPage.LinkedObject as TWhateverClassYouNeed).Name := PageName
This "linked object" approach is much more consistent with the rest of the JVCL and allows for greater flexibility.
||The LinkedObject property has been added to the TJvOutlookBarPage class|
