Am I not remembering something or did they add an autocomplete for bitmaps? I thought I use to have to assign an OFF bitmap and then an ON bitmap. Today I just assigned the OFF Bitmap and the ON bitmap was filled in automatically. If this is a new feature, bravo! if this has always been there, please disavow all knowledge of this post
The feature has actually been in there since TPDesign4 2.0, but that won't keep us from the accepting the belated compliment. If you're interested in the low-down, here's how the "smart" assignment works. There are several filename suffix pairs that are recognized as on/off image pairs (.png shown for illustration, this may be .jpg as well), as long as the "base" of the filename is the same:
- *off.png / *on.png (e.g., myCoolButtonOff.png / myCoolButtonOn.png)
- *f.png / *n.png (e.g., myCoolButton_f.png / myCoolButton_n.png)
- *0.png / *1.png (e.g., myCoolButton_0.png / myCoolButton_1.png)
- *1.png / *2.png (e.g., myCoolButton_1.png / myCoolButton_2.png)
If you assign one of the "off" images to the Off state on a general button, and there is a corresponding "on" image, AND the current On state image is either empty or is the current Off state image's pair (*WHEW*), then it will be automatically assigned. It only works when you set the Off image, though; not when you set the On image.
Consider yourself a power-user for finding it and using it. [grin]
My boss and all of my co-workers would like to thank you for making my head soooo big that they can no longer fit in the same room as me.
I think I just noticed it because I just recently had our graphics guy start to label things according to one of the schemes you listed. I must now go out and buy a lottery ticket
Thanks again for the great work.
