Easier MUI programming: MUI class

Posted by ALB42 on 26. Januar 2018No Comments

Currently I’m working on the idea I had long time before. A pascal interface to MUI classes. MUI uses Amiga boopsi interface to access the GUI elements. But thats not very convenient, especially for pascal users. I started already two time an approach to create such classes. The main problems are the fields which can only set in the moment when the object is created and the TagLists which does not tell you the type of a field you have to cast everything to integer. In LCL I supply the properties as Create parameter TagList, so it’s just the same as using the plain MUI functions.
In this MUIClass implementation the pascal classes will only collect the field values and create the MUI objects on the actual application run and window open. You have more chance to interact with the objects before the MUI objects get created.
It makes the MUI programming much easier, I like it. I’m thinking to change some of my programs to that system, the code looks much easier to read. The code is on GitHub under a public domain license.
