    Talking Icons - More Variety?

    Icons - More Variety?


    Loving the system, here is something that could help.

    I know this is a work in progress, hopefully this helps in some respect...
    There are a few things I do not like about the Project Inspector / Icons.
    • Icons change to Folders
      • Very not helpful, the arrow is enough to show sub-items
      • Here are some that change
        • Controllers ( add any behavior )
        • Stores ( add a Proxy )
        • select fields ( add a behavior )
    • Similar icons
      • Some more differences in icons would help
      • Something like the stores? With the {} and <> and such...
      • Here are some ideas
        • Behaviors - Use the f, change the x
          • a for application
          • b for basic
          • e for basic event
          • c for controller
          • r for reference
          • d for delegate event binding
        • Validation
          • similar to stores, overlay some "text"
          • add a @ for email validation
          • add a - for exclusion
          • add a + for inclusion
        • Models
          • add a 1 for has one
          • add a + for has many
          • add a 123 for sequential generator
        • Proxies
          • add the same overlays as the similar stores?

    Thank you! this is actually quite good, I'm going to pass this feedback to the artist that's working on a complete new set of icons for the toolbox.

    Yes as always artistan good feedback.

    The folders indicate we haven't added a custom icon yet and should be resolved close or at open Beta launch

    Loving the new icons in build 257.
    I would still recommend customizing the Proxies since they can be applied to Models. On a store it is obvious which proxy they would be, but not on a model.

    Custom icons for the Data Model Validations would be nice also.

    Thanks for all the excellent tweaks/updates!!!!

    I really like the...
    • collapsible filters
    • hide option on the Toolbar
    • New view changing toolbar (little bright though)
    • Grouping icons for...
      • Controllers
      • Views
      • Stores
      • Models
    • Shrink to Fit!!!

    also the main icons/buttons look disabled as they are light grey... any chance of a darker grey? It's a very slight difference between actually disabled and active. :-)
