Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSTUDIO-449) Add a new GeneralizedTime Value Editor
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2009 09:50:50 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-449:

Hi Felix,

Yeah, you're right, we'll have two combos. One that would display the UTC+/-something value
and another one for the cities.
I wanted to display this second one as an optional combo that would only be available (displayed)
if the user clicks on an arrow with a label like "Select time zone by city" (or something
like that)...

Or maybe we can combine these two combos into one, 'UTC+/-something' values first and 'Continent/City'
values after.

I don't really get what you mean by "Why not having one showing 'UTC Greenich'?". Could you
be more precise please ?

About the Raw box, I followed Stefan's advice to allow the user to edit the value by hand.
It's in a standard text field which is linked to a "syntax validator" shown on the right of
the field.
The values are completely synchronised with the Data/Time widgets above (and vice versa)

BTW, the widget seems to handle correctly the regional settings of the OS.
On the win32 screenshot, the calendar is in French and the week starts on Monday which matches
my French user settings.
Same thing on the macosx and linux were I use US English settings.

> It would be great to have a value editor for editing values of type GeneralizedTime.
> Something with a Calendar (we could use SWT's calendar feature) for the date and a clock
(or spinners instead) for the time, and an option to use the local TimeZone or specify it
via a combo.
> It could be a great addition for a future release.
