I’m trying to upgrade DatePicker from old Fuse to 0.20. I’ve followed the guide here https://www.fusetools.com/docs/native-interop/native-ux-components
First of all this gives me an error:
extern(!iOS) public class MySlider: LeafView
After replacing LeafView with Panel I still get an error when trying to compile for iOS:
.uno/DatePicker.g.uno(38.13): E3104: 'iOSDatePicker' does not contain a member called 'Name'. Could you be missing a package reference?
.uno/DatePicker.g.uno(39.13): E3104: 'iOSDatePicker' does not contain a member called 'Bindings'. Could you be missing a package reference?
.uno/datepicker_example.unoproj.g.uno(5.66): E2047: No implicit cast from 'iOSDatePicker' to Uno.UX.PropertyObject
My attempt is here: https://github.com/bolav/fuse-datepicker
LeafView is currently not a
Node, so it doesn’t support bindings when it is the root element in a template or calss (as of 0.21). I see though that we should probably make
Node to support this use case.
Currently, the native views are implemented by passing an interface to the host down to the implementation and doing the bindings manually in Uno code. Here is how the iOS slider is implemented: https://gist.github.com/Duckers/2a5a080bb54d6288931948a9764f7997
This is what uno says when I enter LeafView for extern(!iOS):
iOSDatePicker.uno(9.43): E3114: There is nothing named 'LeafView' accessible in this scope. Did you perhaps misspell 'ILeafView' (as in Fuse.Controls.Native.ILeafView)? Could you be missing a package reference?
It would be good if you also describe what you mean by
host in this context.
Sorry that this thread got forgotten. Do you still have this problem?
Yes. I still don’t know how to implement this in Fuse 0.2x, and have not seen any working best practice examples.
Did you look at the sample?
Yes. That does not follow the pattern outlined here: Custom native control wrappers for UX markup, and does not use
Native.DatePicker class extends
Panel, and not
LeafView as the documentation says it should, and which @duckers also says should work.
Also I would like to have a description of what you mean with host.
