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.

    Luck for what? That they implement it you mean?

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

    damn1 0.1 curaplugincode 2

    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)
