in our application we want to include a control that should give the user the possiblility to enter data in a way similar to OneNote, i.e. in a less structured way.
The way we want to do this is by providing a control where the user can drag other controls onto it, like:
- (Rich) Text Area where the user can enter text
- Table (with predifined entries) that the user can use as a check list
- Image are
- File area
The way it should work is similar to your cuba studio WISYWIG editor: The user can drag & drop our controls from a panel to the main area.
As I have not made custom controls yet, I have some questions:
As your documentation mentions, your WISYWIG editor is based on the Vaadin Drag&Drop layout. If we would do the same approach, do we have to integrate the Vaadin layout as a plugin first (as described in 184.108.40.206. Using a Third-party Vaadin Component) and then create our control as (described in 220.127.116.11. Creating a GWT component), using the plugin as a our layout?
When using the approach from 18.104.22.168., is it possible to use components from the Vaadin standard libaray there, or can you only use the standard GWT components?
Do you have a sample project that is similar to your WISIWYG editor? If not, would it be possible that create a sample for us as part of an incident?
