Hello, fpc-developer list.
Some time ago I posted here proposal to extend platform keyword. You
gave a hostile reception to that proposal.
Later Florian in private conversation with me suggested better idea of
property attributes. Indeed, attributes are more general solution than
Lets discuss this proposal.
What is the purpose: extend rtti (or another structures that can be
accessed at run time) with list of user defined Name=Value items.
How it can be used: since it is generic solution different tools can use
it in their own way. For example in LCL we can use attribute 'widgetset'
to define widgetset specific properties and show such properties on
another Tab of Object Inspector or with different colors (or show hints
and so on).
Attached file (open document format can be opened by OpenOffice)
contains proposed syntax diagrams and declaration examples.
