ComboBox2D Progress!!#

Hello and welcome to my third weekly check-in, I will be sharing my progress with the project so far. In case you wondered, the sub-org that I am affiliated to is FURY. Make sure to check out the official repository here.

What did you do this week?#

This week my objective was to work on the sizing and positioning issue regarding the sub-components of the ComboBox2D UI element. After countless debugging sessions and my mentor’s support, I was successfully able to fix the issue. I also developed helpful methods and callbacks for this element to allow users to interact with them in a user friendly manner. I also wrote tests for the same. So far the said progress can be summarized via this gif:

What is coming up next week?#

Unfortunately, one of the sub-components TextBlock2D, didn’t have a resizing feature that I could make use of for this new UI component. Thus, I need to add that feature on a different PR. This feature will also be required while building other UI elements therefore adding this feature is currently my top priority. There’s also a bug regarding the scrollbar that needs to be fixed. The scrollbar overshoots the specified combobox area after new items are appended to the combobox’s list of items during runtime. Hopefully I will be able to get them done by next week.

Did you get stuck anywhere?#

I was really confused with the coordinate system of Panel2D that was the main reason why components were misplaced. I also faced some issues regarding the scrollbar callback as it wasn’t scrolling the elements properly, the items were stuck in place. So far I was able to fix them. Apart from these, I didn’t face any major issues.

Thank you for reading, see you next week!!
