Subject Re: Web control center: generate or not properties with default values.
Date Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:26:37 GMT
Dmitry,

Yes, exactly.

I'm not going to generate all 100500 properties. :)
I'm talking about some subset of "main" properties.


Sergey,

1) Radio buttons will occupy much more space than a combobox.
2) Making default value gray in combobox will looks ugly (IMHO).
