Description (last modified by romzee) (diff)

Highlighting the compatible widgets to a particular widget when the mouse hovers over that widget in the schema, would be a fascinating and quite helpful experience in orange.

Hey , here's a suitable design to the patch : add 2 more line to widget popup menu : ( orangeCanvbas.pyc:line 497)

self.widgetPopup.addAction("Common signal inputs",self.input_types) self.widgetPopup.addAction("Common signaloutputs",self.output_types)

#now define the two methods :(line 523)

def input_types(self):

""" the code follows here """ return

def output_types(self):

""" the code follows here """ return

""" On right clicking the widget , the options to find common input/output widgets comes in the pop up menu""" """ The result of clicking this ,

will either highlight the widgets or popup a menu containing these widgets """
