Add a built in way to have a scrollable list of objects



  • Can you add a built in way to scroll objects (like a webpage/multiline textbox), it would really be awesome.

    I know it’s somewhat doable by doing it yourself with quite a bit of work, but if it’s far as good and efficient as one you’d see on iPad.



  • @Kamdroid Same as your blur. What's needed is UIKit incorporation.

    Then you get date spinners, sliders, checkboxes, tab bars, switches, split views, collections, auto-layout, etc etc...

    But that's going to require some considerable effort.

    It would, however, put hyperPad in a position of enormous strength as the first to market with a prototyping tool that builds apps, and runs stand-alone on the iPad.

    An endeavour worth financing, I'd suggest.



  • @Kamdroid I don’t know if you’ve seen my scrolling example, but it does work ok. Not as good as normal though. I never finished the “flick” and it keeps scrolling type feature.



  • @iTap-Development No self respecting engine that calls itself hyperPad should force you to code UI elements for the platform it runs on.

    See hyperCard. It was a revelation. Spawned the internet, among other things.



  • @Deeeds I think iTaps example could work though, if HyperPad can’t get real UI elements. Once prefabs are added, if someone polishes it up it could work.

    I would LOVE to have UI kit support added to hyperPad. But doing so would make the UI kit type stuff exist on-top of the hyperPad scene. Which I guess wouldn't be too big of an issue now that I think about it... But none the less UI related objects are already on our public roadmap, unfortunately it just keeps getting pushed back :(.

    Gotta walk before you can run. Need the fundamentals in place before adding cool things. As you have clearly noticed there are some things lacking in hyperPad, that would obviously need to be in place before UI items.
    Also, hyperPad is more designed for mobile games and interactive apps. So the UI stuff takes a second place. Which kind of sucks, and I'd like to see changed personally.
