What's coming up in HIPE 8

Line: 124 to 124
 
    • All task GUIs and nodes should now show tooltips
  • Added some new user-friendly parameter editors (see For Task developers only)
  • Default task layout:
Changed:
<
<
    • Improving visibility of defaults: tooltip TODO
>
>
    • Parameter name tooltips now show the parameter name (for long names)
 
    • big modifiers can occupy a full row
    • groups (tabs) can be navigated with the mouse wheel
Deleted:
<
<
    • New Task Dialog Preference allows to generate task calls showing all non-empty parameters ("full calls").
 
    • Parameters can be reset individually via contextual menu on parameter names (vs resetting all parameters with Clear button)
    • Parameters can list the variables they can accept via contextual menu on parameter names (to know before hand if we have the proper data to use a parameter)
  • For Task developers only:
    • Task registration will issue warnings if either the task was already registered or the taskname was already used or both.
    • Command generation: added converters so that arbitrary types can be represented with Jython strings (part of better visibility for defaults)
    • New shared Modifiers (parameter editors):
Changed:
<
<
      • Added Editor for selecting a subset of a list of values (JListModifier, N values of M possible, M >= N)
      • Added a variant of JOptionModifier (Combo box) that returns some values but shows others (example: parameter uses integers but we show strings to users)

Misc Tasks

  • OpenTask parameter names have changed capitalization to comply with lower camel case
Line: 151 to 150
 
  • Task simpleAsciiTableReader extended to support all options of asciiTableReader via Advanced tab. (eventually, asciiTableReader will subsume simpleAsciiTableReader)
  • Improved type guessing for table reading (affects (simple)AsciiTableReader): for floating-point data it will detect precision loss and maintain representation. If a floating-point number will lose precision as a float (32-bits) a double (64-bits) will be used instead: up to 17 significant digits but in these case it will use twice the memory.
  • Improved documentation and information provided by getObservation
Changed:
<
<
  • Added contextual menu option to save tables with asciiTableWriter
>
>
  • Added contextual menu option to Variables View to save tables with asciiTableWriter
