Hello Everybody,

I needed something like this but couldn't find any so I wrote it myself!
It is something like an editable "properties" window in a UI element with "quick tagger" like features and a little more.

Here is more info and download link.

Check it out and let me know what you think smile.gif

Autumn, i hope you don't feel annoyed to hear all the time the same stuff about GUI and aesthetical points but i can't help myself: these controlboxes are really ugly. Somehow they won't fit in the window/ui-element in a nice way. They are obtrusive, have different lenths, ...

I don't know how difficult it could be to use another control. In facets component i found following unobtrusive triangle at the end of line which opens a menu. Maybe there are other possibilities too.

Firstly I'm not defending TagBox Aesthetically, this is what I could come up with considering the little free time I have to spend on a hobby like developing a component for foobar2000. Give me one free month and I'll make it something you want to hang on your wall laugh.gif
Although I have done quite a bit of UI programming I'm not a specialist in this area so any fancy thing I want to do I have to do a lot of reading and research first.
Also UI programming is not as easy as it seems. There is no "Gallery of Controls" like you think there is. There are a few controls like edit boxes or labels or comboboxes but anything more fancy you have to do it yourself, and believe me it's not easy. Actually I'd say serious UI programming is one of the difficult fields in computer programming.
So if I find more free time I'll gladly try to improve TagBox visually but functionality has priority for me.
