I am working on standardising the input boxes for values on forms. Now some have up/down buttons, and some don't.
I have developed an extended Tedit box which can be set to allow just number values and includes up/down buttons. This is not a component that needs installing to Delphi, it just needs a normal Tedit box on the form (so saves a lot of work) and my unit added to "uses" and it extends normal Tedit and allows settings to be changed.
Personally I don't like up/down buttons, so I have added a feature that if editbox has focus with mouse over it, you can increase or decrease value with mouse wheel by a set amount and by holding either shift or ctrl will inc/dec by grid major/minor settings (not useful in all cases but nice in some:)).
I also intend to add an option in options screen to turn on/off all up/down controls of these edit boxes.
I also want to change some inputs to allow floating point numbers not just integers. New Tedit allows this but some forms and procedures need a lot of rewrite to allow this so may not be in first release.
Any thoughts welcome Very Happy

Awesome.. DeleD could really benefit from some generic sollutions to generic problems. I allready thought about doing this, but I dont have experience with component Development in Delphi. Also, time is an issue.

Keep up the good work! Smile

Ah, now you know what PJ and I have been dealing with all those years: wanting to improve things and add new tools but lacking the time to do all the things we would like... Choices, choices... Wink It's great to see many of these things being picked up by other developers now, like standardized input boxes! Very Happy
