Never mind; I discovered I had to add the My Documents folder to the Search Path under Environment Options/Component Library.

Well that was painful.  I changed the font size of all controls from 20 to 16 and resized the sizes to suit.  Took a few hours but it's all done now.  The flexibility of the interfaces is amazing. I just wish there was a way to globally change properties.Smile

Hi Steve,

I emailed Tim about this before and it is something that he is going to
look at after the initial release.

Steve,

<< However, when I changed the default font size to 16 for the TForm
interface (Base and Client) it didn't make any different to TLabels I put on
the form.  So I changed the font size of the TLabel interface to 16 and that
still didn't make any difference. >>

Fonts are not inherited in EWB 2.  None of the UI element properties are
inherited, period.

They're all just JSON files, so it's pretty easy to parse them and change
them around, so that will be coming soon.

I've got a new set of interfaces for EWB 2 almost ready, and they're
color-coordinated, so I'll also need the global option for swapping in color
schemes.

Nice.  I guess I'll need to change the font sizes again, but at least the global option will make it a lot easier.

I have only just acquired EWB2 Preview, and from what I have read I know the theme can be changed.

Regarding the original post on this thread, I would like to agree with the statement made.

You only have one chance to make a first impression, and the difference as the new demo looked was indeed starkling. I was taken aback actually. (I just checked and the page linked has been updated to a way better look and feel.)

BTW, the page that got me to drop everything else and literally wait a year for EWB2 was the following:
http://www.elevatesoft.com:8080/masterdetail/masterdetail.html

I said, if this product can do that with me writing Pascal code...... YES!

I used the EWB1 Trial a bit, however when I heard it was not compatible with EWB2 I didn't delve deeply into it and focused on other projects.

Glad this is now out... Just installed a few minutes ago. Excited by the prospects and direction of this product.

When comparing the old look and feel (http://www.elevatesoft.com:8080/datasetclient/datasetclient.html) with new (http://www.elevatesoft.com:8081/formsubmit/formsubmit.html) the last one feels like old fashion.

Is this for a reason? I think new customers prefer the old look and feel.

Does EWB 2.0 also have similar themes as EWB 1.0?

Yes, there's a new standard interface:

http://www.elevatesoft.com:8081/slideshow/slideshow.html

http://www.elevatesoft.com:8081/databound/databound.html

http://www.elevatesoft.com:8081/formsubmit/formsubmit.html

There's also a new "rounded" interface included also in the product, and it
has a similar modern look, but with rounded corners and "chunkier" text.
