[Feature Request] Anchor absolute field computation
« on: July 11, 2014, 08:00:03 AM »

I've found myself looking for a small yet very useful feature to the current Anchor system.
When working precisely with the way one would want to position its widgets in the screen, I thought it would be really cool if we could, within the custom Anchor inspector, type a small computation and see its result applied at the end.
What I'd like to be able to achieve would be placing the focus on, say, the left anchor absolute field and type something like "32 + 256" and when hitting "Return" have the result of the maths applied to the field (in this case "288").

That's not something that I see as a priority but when dealing with absolute widget placement, it can become handy to do so... ;)

Obviously, being able to support additions, soustractions, products and divisions would be just perfect ;)

Thanks for considering this feature request.

Yeah that would be pretty handy. But where to draw the line though? "Sin((32+256)/2)+Screen.width"? ;)
