View Full Version : Icons - More Variety?

19 Jan 2012, 3:05 PM
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


similar to stores, overlay some "text"
add a @ for email validation
add a - for exclusion
add a + for inclusion


add a 1 for has one
add a + for has many
add a 123 for sequential generator


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...


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. :-)
