In-place calculator

Published by on December 26th 2010.

The purpose of software is to make things easier. Every little bit counts. Future versions of RealWorld applications will a allow you to type simple expressions in some places where only numbers are allowed now.

Let me show you.

Using expressions when creating image.

As you can see on the screenshot, I am creating a picture and specifying its size. My goal is to create one picture with space for 15 cursor previews on it in 3 rows. Each cursor is 32x32 pixels and I want 8 pixels of space between the cursors. Hence the width of the final image is 5*32+4*8 and its height is 3*32+2*8. In the next version, you would not need to do the calculation in your head, you would simply type the expression in.

The expressions can be used in wizards and in operations and effects like Resample, Drop shadow or Bevel.

The calculator is very simple - you can only use +, -, *, /, (, ) and pi.

I hope people will like and use this feature. I know at least one will, because this was not my idea.
