We started our beta test today and are thrilled to have so many testers on…
The 2nd beta of Version 2 is finally here and it includes some nice features.
Please note: If you used the first beta, delete the old scripts folder ~/Library/Application Support/com.antetype.Antetype-BETA/Scripts
This beta gives a first preview of the new interactions inspector. Actions are now much more flexible and new events were added.
For one element, multiple events can be defined. In addition to the known events, new ones have been added:
Within one event, you can call multiple action sets. An action set consists of one or more cells that will be affected by one or more actions, triggered by the event.
Within one action set, you can also refer to other elements, like siblings, children or parents. Action sets will reduce the number of actions dramatically.
This example shows that you now only need a few actions to create an interactive tabbed pane by making use of the new action sets.
Go, check it out and build your own. (To view the contents of the bundle file, right-click the file and choose “Show Package Contents”).
Like previously, plugins are located in your Application Support folder. You can open this folder via the Plugins menu. New scripts have to be copied here and can then be executed from the menu.
As already mentioned above, you can also call scripts via actions in presentation mode. You can do all kinds of things with that. In our example we replace an Antetype widget with a native Cocoa entry field an thus can edit text in presentation mode.
In another example we embed a web view and load an URL.
You can now turn on scrolling for any cell in in-place presentation mode. Currently, no scrollbars are shown, but trackpads and scroll wheels are supported.
