Item/bug #209
Controls over tabs show wrong background colors in Windows XP
(Tab controls) Cosmetic, Low priority

* Labels, checkboxes, trackbars, buttons and child tab controls show their own background colors when positioned over a tab control.
* If the "default" Windows theme is enabled, tabs and status bars show up in default gray instad of the system background color.

Optionally propagate callback messages
(Windows) Fix, High priority

Must create a flag to decide whether windows should propagate (cascade) calls to the callback functions.

Item/bug #384
Other edit box filters
(Edit boxes) New feature, Low priority

A much better option would be to use custom, user-definable filters. A PHP string would contain a list of the characters to be included (or excluded, according to a flag) from the list. For example:

wb_set_filter($hexedit, "0-9A-F", true);

Possible conflict between lparam and tab page numbers
(Tab controls) Fix, High priority

When the function wb_create_control() is used to create a control inside a tab page, lparam is used to indicate the page number. It currently cannot be used to anything else. One possible solution would be to use strings like "tab0" and pass an array to lparam if some other value is needed (e.g. array("tab0", 120) to pass the value 120 to the control).

(Graphics) New feature, Low priority

These functions should accept an array of three values in addition to a DWORD



Item/bug #65
Separate threads
(System) New feature, Low priority

Thread the created windows somehow, so that events to the handled process are queued up, something like:

wb_set_busy($main, true); // do long loop wb_set_busy($main, false); // continue...

Once the latter is complete, the queued events will be sent to the procedure (or a 'queued' specific procedure). That way we can process intensive applications and have the GUI not freeze up while it is done.

Several controls do not generate WBC_FOCUS notification

Tab controls do not behave correctly if handler is not assigned
(Tab controls) Fix, High priority

A tab control only shows/hides the correct child controls if wb_set_handler() is assigned to its parent window.

Item/bug #68
wb_create_window() may abort execution
(Windows) Crash, Low priority

wb_create_window() (and probably other functions too) aborts execution if parent window is an arbitrary number like 1, 200, etc. The cause is that wbIsWBObj() does not effectively check if pwbo is a valid WB object and aborts when trying to dereference an invalid pointer. The fix would be to create a global list of valid WB objects.



Item/bug #57

wb_set_text() must behave exactly like the Caption parameter of wb_create_window(), and vice-versa



Item/bug #4
wb_set_text() must not select items
(Controls) Fix, High priority

wb_set_text() must not be used to select items from controls. Should use wb_set_selected() instead



Item/bug #306
wb_set_value() does not work properly with items
(Controls) Fix, High priority

wb_set_value() should have an extra parameter to deal with items. As it is now, it can set but not clear a check box in a ListView. Something like

wb_set_value($list, true, array(1, 2, 3));

instead of

wb_set_value($list, array(1, 2, 3));



(End of list)
