KaTool - early screenshot
I want to give you a first glance at the symbol/gesture editor. As I have explained in previous posts, this application will let me build the handwritten kana/kanji symbol database for Kana DS. I'm using J2SE 5.0/Swing in Xcode. Here's how it looks so far:
- The user interface is far from finished. Placing the widgets is quite a hard task in Swing, so for the time being I'm using the simplest possible layouts. I will polish the UI later.
- There is a main window that holds a custom "GridPanel" component. This new component can have any number of columns or rows. Now I'm using a 11x5 distribution, to match the hiragana/katakana character sets.
- Clicking on any of the grid's placeholders opens a new document window, when you can edit the corresponding symbol.
PD: Thanks for all the comments. It really encourages me to keep working on this :)
