Dear CURA developers - can you please make the following change?

Posted · Dear CURA developers - can you please make the following change?

Is it maybe possible to create a new param for CURA-plugins,

called "none", "description" or whatever, that does NOT create the standard text box - that would be very useful for readability and so on...

It would be just 2-3 lines new code at pluginPanel.py ;)

edit: see here (post #5) for an example and code:

That's axactly right, I already changed it here at my local copy of Cura, but if I use it now in my plugin nobody else can do. A breakline like '<br \>' would be nice also. Anyway with a label i can just use '---------------' if necessary.

As I worked on that part of the Cura code as well, I have to wish you good luck... :huh:

Luck for what? That they implement it you mean?

It's really not a big deal... I hope they do it.

Not the very best solution but a good one without too much effort:

change no. 1 at pluginPanel.py:

replace line 112:

 


s.Add(wx.StaticText(pluginPanel, -1, param['description']), pos=(3+i,0), span=(1,2), flag=wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT|wx.ALIGN_CENTER_VERTICAL,border=3)

with

 


if param['description'] == '---' and param['type'] == 'none':
s.Add(wx.StaticLine(pluginPanel), pos=(3+i,0), span=(1,4), flag=wx.EXPAND|wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT,border=3)
elif param['description'].startswith('b_'):
ctrl = wx.StaticText(pluginPanel, -1, (param['description'])[2:])
tmp = ctrl.GetFont()
tmp.SetWeight(wx.BOLD)
ctrl.SetFont(tmp)
s.Add(ctrl, pos=(3+i,0), span=(1,2), flag=wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT|wx.ALIGN_CENTER_VERTICAL,border=3)
elif param['description'].startswith('m_'):
s.Add(wx.StaticText(pluginPanel, -1, ((param['description']).replace(r'\n','\n'))[2:]), pos=(3+i,0), span=(1,2), flag=wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT|wx.ALIGN_CENTER_VERTICAL,border=3)
pass
else:
s.Add(wx.StaticText(pluginPanel, -1, param['description']), pos=(3+i,0), span=(1,2), flag=wx.LEFT|wx.RIGHT|wx.ALIGN_CENTER_VERTICAL,border=3)

change no. 2 at pluginPanel.py:

insert before line 123

 


else: #standard text box

the following

 

 


elif param['type'].lower() == 'none':
pass

Then you can print with params...

... an empty second colum by type:'none'

... a line by description:'---' and type:'none'

... a bold text by 'b_' before the description

... use \n as newline by 'm_' before the description

Do the plugins run properly like that? No problems in pluginInfo.py?

@Dim3nsioneer: everything is fine so far ;)

 

 

You should clone the source code from https://github.com/daid/Cura

using git, make your edits and submit them as pull request. That way your edits can be automatically merged with the existing code, if the code is up to standard.

 

well, my solution is really quick and not sophisticated.

if you can tell me that you will definitely include it when it is ready, then I will invest more time in a better way for the formatting options, ... (and use github)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
