The state of the development is that it is fully completed to the
first stage with the exception of the date and time handling and
display - which will be completed at a later date - it's essentially
low priority at the moment . The effects have not been tested for
a long time so might , quite likely , need some updating . They
also need to be expanded and to be integrated in with the GDI to
provide smoother transitions - again all a low priority at the moment
. The second stage - construction of a text to binary script assembler
- is complete . The third stage - construction of a script editor
- has not commenced . However the existing binary script compiler
can be used for script development .
The aim - for the first 2 stages - is to provide a system where
complete UI's and UI portions can be developed in the same manner
as a componentised program . The binary scripts are interpreted
like a program . The difference is that the interpretations put
UI objects on the screen and allow interaction with the user and
, on the other end , send event messages to other native code components
. Thus this allows a separate componentised approach to UI's to
be taken . It's rather like the skins approach - UI's separate from
the underlying code .
The nature of the project is that it has a lot of potential and
, as such , a lot of ongoing development as it's abilities are expanded
and added to . Consequently this site is updated as the latest version
comes available and the associated date and time updated .
