Weekly Check-in #2

Published: 06/07/2020

First week of coding!!

Hello and welcome to my second weekly check-in, I will be sharing my progress for the first week of coding.

What did you do this week?

This week my objective was to create the skeleton model for ComboBox2D UI element along with its required sub-components and their respective default callbacks. So far, I have successfully been able to implement them. Apart from some issues that I was facing regarding the sizing and position of the sub-components.

What is coming up next week?

Next week, my main focus will be on fixing the sizing issue and I will also be working on respective default and specialized class methods required by the component and its sub-components for proper functioning. I will also create tests for the same.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

The main problem that I faced while coding the UI element was regarding the sizing and positioning of the sub-components. The sub-components appeared flipped and the TextBlock2D element had no option to resize based on a particular width & height definition.

As you can see, the ComboBox UI element doesn't look the way its supposed to. Along with this issue the scrollbars callback doesn't work either. Hopefully, I will be able to get these issues fixed by next week.

Thank you for reading, see you next week!!
