Hi All,
 
    It's probably time to made a new Win32::GUI release based on Win32-GUI-0_0_665-fix branch.
    I can create a Win32-GUI-0.0.671 from this branch.
    Does someone have something to put in this branch before release ?
 
    After, it's probably time to stop working on this branch and start working on next Win32-GUI with new event model implementation.
 
    I have made huge work on Win32::GUI this week-end for refactoring Win32::GUI code.
    I have create a .xs file for each control and try to implement all of SendMessage/Macro control API (not finish).
 
    For each CLASS control, i have a XS file with :
 
       * First part, define some control callback function  :
            - xxx_onPreCreate  : this function set defaut style for control
            - xxx_onParseOption: this function parse specific control option
            - xxx_onPostCreate : this function handle specific control option property (color,...)
                This function is call after Window creation and in Change method too.
                We probably need a different name.
 
            I think we can extend this concept of callback method for all control and add more function.
            After, we can replace all Switch(class) by a pFct[class] call where pFct it's an array of pointer function.
            It's possibly something to use for new event model, create a special callback fonction for handle all event of control. Like this, all code for a control it's in one file.
 
       * Second Part, i implement all Control API
            I use same ordre than MSDN documentation (alphabetic order) and use same name than standard Window API (message name or macro name).
            I use same name because, i think it's probably easier for find documentation in MSDN .

            I create ALIAS for keep old Win32::GUI name.
            For sample, with Textfield, i define GetSel (same name as message name) and define an ALIAS for Selection() method.
 
    ###########################################################################
    # (@)METHOD:GetSel()
    # 
    # (@)METHOD:Selection()
    # See GetSel.
   
void
GetSel(handle)
    HWND handle
ALIAS:
    Win32::GUI::Textfield::Selection = 1
PREINIT:
    DWORD start;
    DWORD end;
PPCODE:
    SendMessage(handle, EM_GETSEL, (WPARAM) &start, (LPARAM) &end);
    EXTEND(SP, 2);
    XST_mIV(0, (long) start);
    XST_mIV(1, (long) end);
    XSRETURN(2);
 
      * Last Part, containt more high level method for the control.
 
    I have keep in GUI.PM only pure perl method.
 
You can see a copy of my developpement directory here :

    I you found this work interesting, we can use it as base code for starting to work on next Win32::GUI implentation.
    We can use MAIN cvs branch (of Win32-GUI CVS module) for this.
 
Cheers,
 
    Laurent.
