some UI changes in the pipeline
By bblfish on May 16, 2005
One element I am hoping to make a little clearer is that the first entry in BlogEd is the title entry. I am doing this by placing information about the entry into the left hand pane. Also since the title entry cannot be published using the MetaWeblog API I have added a little glass pane with a message to indicate this.
The categories combo box would only be visible for MetaWeblog API users at first. This still needs to be implemented.
The look is a lot better I think already. Even though it may not seem like a huge change, when one is learning to Swing, getting a few small things right can be quite tricky. What is nice though is to see how mature the framework now is. So at least I don't have to worry as I did in Java1.0 days about whether its a knowledge or a framework problem. Now I know that it's just my problem. The documentation for Swing is also really good now.
And the more I play with this the more ideas I am having...
Oh. I have not yet put the above in CVS... I hope to have a new beta this week.
