    [forge-users] customize views and classes

    Richard Ngo Newbie

      Hi all,

       

      Long time lurker to the list and I am finally ready to use it in a small

      project but I have a few questions if you guys will be so kind to answer.

       

      1. What is the most advisable way to modify the UI? Should I modify the

      auto generated ones or create my own?

       

      2. extending generated classes - Is this advisable or just create a totally

      separate one?

       

      Thanks!

          Hi Richard,

           

          I am very sorry that this email went unnoticed for so long! I'll try to

          answer your questions as best as I can.

           

          1.  You can do either! Once Forge has generated views, you are free to

          modify them yourself - just be aware that if you re-generate any views with

          Forge, your changes will be lost! So generally don't re-generate views

          you've already changed.

           

          2. Same thins as the above, you are free to modify any classes once Forge

          has generated them.

           

          We are still working on the generation itself so that files can be extended

          at generation time.

           

          I hope this is the (very late) answer you were looking for!
