Software News   Software News : Release of AISS 2 (AmigaImageStorageSystem)
   posted by Mason on 25-Feb-2006 20:01:12 (2333 reads)
AISS is a system to store, access and maintain toolbar images under AmigaOS.




The images are placed in two seperate drawers. The first drawer is for the default pictures provided by AISS, while the second drawer is for additional images by 3rd party applications.

Both directories are merged together for a big stock of images.

A detailed documentation for users and developers is available.


THIS RELEASE OF AISS IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH PREVIOUS VERSIONS!
Please have a look at the documentation (Uninstall.html) how to
uninstall older versions of AISS.

Interesting idea.
Now developers just need to make use of it.

BTW: Your new png icons look really nice!

(After installing AISS 2, I would uncheck the "wait until finished" option in the AISS icon in WBStartUp.)

What will be the result and how to change it? Maybe I can add it to the next release...

When it is checked, there is a delay in the WB startup. When it is not checked, then no extra delay.

It is changed by selecting the icon, going to the icon menu and selecting "information," clicking on the Icon tab, and unchecking ("unticking," deselecting) the "wait until finished option.

This option only shows up for icons that are in WBStartup. If it doesn't show up just add the tooltype, "DONOTWAIT" to the icon.

Hi!

Could you please explain this system of yours to me in a more pratical sense?
I really don't get what the need for a system like this would be.

Is it for using the same icons in all programs. Like if IBrowse and Aweb used it
they would automatically use the same toolbar without having to store the icons
in two different places..?

Ok, lets try

AISS is a big stock of toolbarimages. This images, which are provided by AISS, are placed in the 'default' drawer. Programs, that support AISS, must save their toolbar images in the drawer 'contrib'.

Both drawers are merged together under the assign 'tbimages:' while the 'default' drawer is the leading drawer: If two images with the same name are stored in each drawer, the pictures from the 'default' drawer will be used.

Why not using just one drawer?
Imagine you have changed your hole system to Kens wonderfull toolbar images via AISS. Then you install a new program that use my toolbar images. Kens images would be overwriten and mix of icon styles may appear in every toolbar.
With AISS, the image from the 'default' drawer (in this case Kens image) will be used.

What if a program uses a image which is not part of AISS?
The original image, that comes with the program, will be displayed. Which results in a mix of icons in only this programs toolbar. Then you have to contact the author of your prefered AISS theme to add this view images to his collection.

Example:

Content of 'default': Open, Save, Cut, Copy, Paste, New
Content of 'contrib': Open, Save, New, Print, Undo, Redo

The programm needs the following images: New, Open, Print, Undo, Redo

New
- AISS search - there is a images called 'New' in the 'default' drawer
- the image 'New' from the 'default' drawer will be used

Open
- AISS search - there is a images called 'Open' in the 'default' drawer
- the image 'Open' from the 'default' drawer will be used

Print
- AISS search - there is *NO* image called 'Print' in the 'default' drawer
- AISS search - there is is a images called 'Print' in the 'contrib' drawer
- the image 'Print' from the 'contrib' drawer will be used

Undo
- AISS search - there is *NO* image called 'Undo' in the 'default' drawer
- AISS search - there is is a images called 'Undo' in the 'contrib' drawer
- the image 'Undo' from the 'contrib' drawer will be used

Redo
- AISS search - there is *NO* image called 'Redo' in the 'default' drawer
- AISS search - there is is a images called 'Redo' in the 'contrib' drawer
- the image 'Redo' from the 'contrib' drawer will be used


Hope this will help

Yes it helps, thanks. Now I understand how it works.

Btw what if:

I install a toolbar for IBrowse (with a special theme) in contrib.
Some of its images already exist (like Print) in default. I suppose
AISS will use a mix of these two then? Making IBrowse toolbar look
strange..
Will there be a prefs option for either the AISS system or each application
to control which images is used by them to stop this from happening?

Also will there be subdrawers in contrib for several different themes?
If yes, how will these be handled? It could get really difficult when alot
of themes is installed and several icons is only found in specific places
making the system look mixed and strange.

IMHO there's a REAL NEED for AISS to define a full set of images for every
possible use and then everyone else could make themes on these..
