Event Naming issues.

Postby jtracy » Tue Jul 17, 2007 14:53

I have noticed some issues with event names that I am trying to get a handle on. The main problem that I am having is that events that get fired have a different name then what is documented in the doxygen. For instance in Listbox it mentions that it has EventSelectionChanged, so based on previous experience I should register for a call back on SelectionChanged. But that does not work because looking at the code I noticed the real event name being called is ItemSelectionChanged. Also EventListContentsChanged maps to ListItemsChanged. Is this an oversight or designed to be that way?

Is there any documentation say in the wiki that might show what the real event names will be when running?

Here is a list of events that are inconsistent with there names. I know it would break backwards compatiblity to fix them all, but it has been a major pain in my ass trying to figure out why some events don't seem to work and I am sure others will have the same problems in the future. I hope this helps.
