A public forum for discussing the design of software, from the user interface to the code architecture. Now closed.
Ok, so having done that Java beginners course 2 years ago, I've just landed the job of building an Eclipse RCP pluggin which provides a perspective, some views, and maybe an editor.
This plugin is to support the submission and monitoring of a remote job and viewing the results.
remote job submission doesn't realy seem to fit the best as a viewer or an editor, is there another UI pattern for remote/batch submission?
The users would like to be able to enter some default values, and not see those things in the interface for each job. How do you allign label & data entry fields as pairs in a container so that you can easily add or remove pairs while ensuring that the labels are sizeable to allow for internationalisation.
1. Actually, Views work quite well. There's an article on Eclipse Corner called "Building administrative applications in Eclipse" that may help.
2. A few possibilities come to mind....
- RowData could be used to hide/show the advanced options.
- Tabs could be used to separate the advanced options.
- A list or tree with a StackLayout would also work (similar to Eclipse's Preferences window).
I like the tabs idea the best.
