Announcing AVC 0.5.0
What is AVC?
AVC is a multiplatform, fully automatic, live connection among
graphical interface widgets and application variables for the python
language. AVC supports in a uniform way the most popular widget
toolkits: GTK, Qt3, Qt4, Tk, wxWidgets. AVC is a python module that
can be imported by any python application.
The display and the control of some application data through a GUI
(Graphical User Interface) is a central problem in GUI programming, it
absorbs a relevant part of the programming effort. AVC makes this
programming very easy, far more easy than traditional solutions based
on MVC (Model View Controller).
* Fully transparent widget-variable connections
* Automatic connection by matching widgets and variables names
* No design pattern, no application redesign, no widget toolkit
* Multiple widget toolkits support: GTK, Qt3, Qt4, Tk, wxWidgets.
* Full compatibility and support for Glade, Qt Designer, Visual Tcl
and wxGlade interface design tools.
* Widgets support: button, check button, combo box, entry, label,
radio button, slider, spin button, status bar, text view/edit, toggle
* Variable types support: boolean, integer, float, string, list,
* Multiple widgets to one variable connection
* Dual update timing of variable value views: immediate or periodic.
* Testing printout logging activity with selectable verbosity
* Python module written in pure python
* Free software ( GNU GPL license )
AVC 0.5.0 released 4-Feb-2008
* Extended label widget output formatting to support generic
python objects and to have a fallback to the standard python string
representation (str()) when there is no formatting string or the
formatting string is not valid.
* New examples: a label formatting example program for each
* New examples: a programmatic version (GUI generated by program
instructions) of the spin button/box/control example for each
* Added testing capability: activity report printout with
selectable verbosity level.
* Rewrited the widget abstraction layer: improved code structure,
more compact, better separation among widget toolkit dependent code in
AVC bindings and in AVC core code.
* Anticipated the test for supported widget from coget creation
(Coget.__init__()) to connections detector (_bind()): more efficient.
