  • 19. How all this work● PtyGuide is central object which drive all application● PtyUser presents domain user of application. It implements domain specific requests ● user payForService ● user selectSavingsAccount ● …● User interacts with guide to call new tasks● Task describes business logic as sequence of user requests● Task can call other tasks● Task can add UI items (presenters) to view area● UI items are presenters which connect model to view● Task can inherit UI items from other tasks
  • 20.

How all this work PtyTaskActivationStrategySeparatedAreaActivationStrategy InheritedActivationStrategy PtyNewAreaActivator areaActivator PtyInlinedAreaActivator PtyModalAreaActivator PtyViewAreaActivator show view area to user PtyNewWindowActivator PtyPopUpAreaActivator PtyEmbeddedAreaActivator
  • 22. Tree UI elementpackage := user select: Package from: PackageOrganizer default packages.class := user select: Class from: package classes.● Class selection task configured to be activated on separated view area near selected package item● With same way any task which executed by button can show its items near this button● Not implemented yet
  • 23. Combo box UI elementguide addTask: [model value: (user select: Item from: possibleItems)].user lookAt: model preferredPreviewPresenter● #lookAt: shows user current value of model● #addTask: adds extra task to view area● #addTask: can be configured as button which executes extra task● Extra task with items selection can be configured to show popup view area with items list
  • 24. PtyForkTask● PtyForkTask is one way to add extra task to view area● PtyForkTask just executed target task and when user request happen parent task continue execution● There are many ways to share «fork task items» with parent task ● Add all items to parent view area ● Put all items on separated panel ● Put first request items on one panel but next on other ● ...
  • 25. What about buttons?● Presenty has no ButtonPresenter or ButtonView (Morph)● Button is just specific way to execute some action. Its same as: ● Shortcuts ● Voice command ● Gesture ● Million other ways
  • 26. User actions * userActions PtyUserAction PtyPresenter connector presenteraction PtyUserActionConnector activators PtyButtonUserActionActivator * PtyUserActionActivator PtyShortcutActionActivator Implements #hookupPresenter PtyMouseClickUserActionActivator
  • 27. User actions Any list item has user action which executes PtyReturnValueFromPresenterTaskUser action PtyReturnToPreviousTask
  • 28. How all this configured● Presenter views can be different for different contexs● Requested tasks can be different for different contexts● Action activators can be different for different contexts Extendible UI contexts● Task context● Presenter context● Presenter style context● List items name context● Any domain specific contexts ● Big payment context ● Little account balance context
  • 29. UISettings and PtyPrototypesManager● Each configured object has prototype● Prototype can create new instances by copy its sample● PtyPrototypesManager contains collections of prototypes● Manager know how to find appropriate prototype ● manager prototypeFor: someContextObject ● special lookup logic which can be extended by domain specific contexts● Separated managers for presenters, tasks and user actions● UISettings contains all managers● UISettings know how to prepare new instances created from prototype● PrototypesManager is separated package. It is not depends on Presenty. It is MIT
  • 30. Future work● Extendible object editor ● user edit: object● Extendible object explorer ● user lookAt: object● User actions with parameters. Drag and drop activators● Text editor based on presenter and user actions● More forking task strategies● More view area activators● Improvements for basic stuff like tables● Docs● ...
