I really like EurekaLog but I totally hate the viewer. For example, the I hate the pop-up that informs me that x errors have been imported or the "Are you sure you want to exit?" message.
I would like to modify it but it uses some custom (Tcx) controls. Is it possible to compile it in my computer so I can get rid of those nasty messages?
I concur! :-)
I use EL every day and love it. It is the greatest invention since shoe laces. However...
I loathe the cheery "Log imported with success!" modal dialog on the Viewer that *loves* to pop up behind things and lock you out of the main viewer.
I have 3 monitors (about to add a 4th) on my development computer, and
the modal Log-Imported dialog wanders around all three screens. I
typically have to look all over my desktop, only to find it under 5
layered windows and close it. Hmm... Where has it hidden itself this time?!!!
Yes, I do run a few other programs besides EL on my desktop...
I would cheerfully remove that %^@#$! thing! :-)
Can't EL just update a status bar in the main ELF viewer that shows that useless nugget of information? I really don't care how many bugs and dupes I just loaded. :-) Next gripe: When do we get *times* in the date column of the Viewer?
That has got to take all of 3 minutes of tweaking the DevExpress Quantum Grid column properties.
I guess EL can't release the Viewer code because it *is* heavily
dependent on the pricey DevExpress code - if you don't own that library,
you wouldn't be able to modify the viewer.
I do own a license for the full DevExpress VCL suite. I'd be happy to
make the mods :-) I'd also throw in some grid printing/PDF export capability - I have a class for that, and it takes about a minute to add to any TcxGrid. It requires the Express Printing library though.
Other features the viewer should have:
An option to NOT save previous bugs in a local database. I use a whole different system for that and only need to see the information for an ELF just sent to me. Once I am done looking at the exception in the Viewer, I don't need to see it again - or I can reload it from my other system (Mantis).
Currently, I have to manually clear the database after I am done looking
at an ELF.
