I would greatly suggest that you do a video just as an example of how one can create a ux using Cuppy Framework and the b4j visual designer. I think it will help us understand more of what this is about, even if it’s just a few controls as per your ‘who wants to join me...’ post?

Congratulations are in order.

Nice examples..

1. Try and avail possibility of developers to set properties for controls via the designer property bags. Then your lib can read and apply those properties inside the custom view.
2. Instead of passing string RGB, b4j has a color picker control and this is accessible via the fx component, perhaps you can look at that also.
3. Can you create an example that can speak to getting and setting values to your controls? Its fine with the B4J text controls, you have your own checkboxes, labels, buttons etc.
4. Hows does one incorporate material / font awersome icons to your controls?
5. How does the web plugin functionality work?

Ta!

Nice one, probably need a way to remove the window "box" to make the form have a material feel. Otherwise this is a good shot. Have you thought of working on a sidebar for the menu button on the left?

Try and have component properties set in the property bag otherwise you are opening up a steep learning curve here. I would like to concentrate on my app functionality than having to worry about the designs, thus the need to make designing easier and smooth.

Exact.
The framework promises
but you have to adjust the properties of your controls as they say Mashiane and improve them.
For example (just one), the CFMaterialCard control is unusable immediately, you need to create labels or images and add them to the pane (InnerCard).
This must already be pre-packaged

Hi, that feature is only available for the people who donated. When you donate, i would send you a new library that as all the features.

The features missing in the free version are:
  • CFBarPreLoader
  • CFMaterialCheckBox
  • CFMaterialLinearProgressBar
  • CFModal
  • The Gray , Dark, Purple, Pink and Amber Themes. There are 2 free professional themes: Blue and Teal

Every other feature can be used freely!

Hi,
After walking through the buying process I get a link for downloading but it does not work.
