Summary0038002: Documentation updates for LazControls
DescriptionContains minor updates to spinex.xml to reflect recent changes in the source code.

The diff file is far too large. A local diff indicates that 71 lines were modified. For some reason, SVN DIFF insists on deleing and re-adding all lines in the file. I have not been able to find any combination of arguments that makes the diff any smaller.

-        <descr>
-          <p>
-            <var>UpdateControl</var> is a method used to update members in the class instance to reflect the state for the control. It is called when a new value is assigned to properties in the class instance. It is called when editing has been completed using the <var>Edit</var> for the grouped editing control. It is also called when the handle is allocated for the control in <var>InitializeWnd</var>.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            UpdateControl ensures that values in <var>MinValue</var> and <var>MaxValue</var> are valid. If MaxValue is not larger than MinValue, the value in MinValue is used in both properties.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            <var>NullValueBehaviour</var> is used to determine whether <var>Value</var> is adjusted to ensure that it is in the range specified by MinValue and MaxValue. A value other than <var>nvbShowTextHint</var> causes <var>GetLimitedValue</var> to be called to get the adjusted Value.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            No additional actions are performed in the method when a handle has not been allocated for the control, or at design-time.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            When NullValueBehaviour is set to <var>nvbShowTextHint</var>, an invalid numeric value entered in <var>Text</var> causes Text to be set to an empty string. This allows the <var>TextHint</var> for the control to be displayed.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            When Value is a valid number, and in the required range, it is converted to its <var>String</var> representation and assigned to the Text for the control.

RealGetText checks whether a handle has been allocated for the control in the widget set class. When a handle is assigned, the inherited method is called to the <var>Text</var> for the <var>Edit</var> in the grouped edit  control.

-            <var>Reset</var> is an overridden method in <var>TSpinEditExBase</var> used to revert changes made to the <var>Value</var> for the control. The <var>IsMasked</var> property is used to determine if an editing mask is in use in the <var>Edit</var> for the grouped edit control. When set to <b>True</b>, the inherited method is called to revert any changes made in Edit. When an editing mask is not in use, the initial value for the control (captured when it received focus) is restored in the Value property.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            Reset is used in the implementation of the <var>EditKeyDown</var> event handler assigned to Edit. It is called when the <b>Escape</b> key (<b>VK_Escape</b>) is pressed in the Edit control.

-            <var>TextIsNumber</var> is an overridden <var>Boolean</var> function used to determine if the specified string contains a valid representation for the numeric data type in the control. TextIsNumber re-implements the inherited method to use the <var>Double</var> data type, and does not call the method in the ancestor class.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            TextIsNumber calls <var>TryStrToFloat</var> using the local format settings for the control to convert the value in <var>S</var> to a floating point value. An exception raised by TryStrToFloat is handled in the method. The converted numeric value is stored in the <var>ANumber</var> argument on success. ANumber should be considered "undefined" when the conversion fails due to an exception.
-          </p>
-          <p>

-          <p>
-            TextIsNumber is used in the implementation of methods like <var>UpdateControl</var>, <var>SpinUpDown</var>, and <var>StrToValue</var>. It is also called when setting a new value in the <var>Value</var> property.

-        <short>Introduction to Extended Spin Edit Controls</short>
-        <descr>
-          <p>
-            The <file>SpinEx.pp</file> unit contains extended spin edit controls, like <var>TSpinEditEx</var> and <var>TFloatSpinEditEx</var>. They are very similar to <var>TSpinEdit</var> and <var>TFloatSpinEdit</var>, but provide additional features which allow a NullValue for the control and behaviors performed when the value for the control is not a valid numeric value.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            This introduction will discuss the problems the design of the controls, and the problems they are intended to eliminate.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            <b>Why another SpinEdit or FloatSpinEdit control?</b>
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            The standard controls, TSpinEdit and TFloatSpinEdit, do not support a NullValue mechanism. Also, their implementations are widgetset dependent. While this provides a control that has the look and feel native to the widgetset, the behavior also depends on the widgetset. This is especially important when the text for the control contains an invalid numeric value (otherwise not a number). In such a case, when querying the control for it's Value, the results are not consistent for the various platforms. The difference in behavior between widgetsets also prevents implementation of the NullValue mechanism, especially the possibility to leave the control empty or to display informative text inside the control about the condition.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            TSpinEditEx handles Int64 values, while TSpinEdit is limited to LongInt values. This is because TSpinEdit inherits from TCustomFloatSpinEdit and the internal member for the Value is stored using the Double type, and Double does not have enough significant digits to handle the range for the Int64 type.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            In addition, TFloatSpinEditEx can set the value for its DecimalSeparator property independent of the value in the DefaultFormatSettings for the platform or operating system. Note: Unlike T(Float)SpinEdit, the GetValue method is always derived from the actual text in the control. This is by design, and it should not be altered.
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            <b>Why not simply associate a TUpDown with a TEdit instead?</b>
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            Using TEdit with a TUpDown control has several disadvantages:
-          </p>
-          <ul>
-            <li>It does not allow floating point values.</li>
-            <li>Its range is limited to the range for the SmallInt type.</li>
-            <li>It does not properly anchor and/or align.</li>
-          </ul>
-          <p>
-            While both TSpinEditEx and TFloatSpinEditEx use a TUpDown control in their implementations, they do not use the Associate property in TUpDown. The two controls (the edit and the up/down button) are embedded in a TCustomControl (much like TEditButton) to provide proper alignment and anchoring behavior.

+        <short>Introduction to Extended Spin Edit Controls</short>
+        <descr>
+          <p>
+            The <file>SpinEx.pp</file> unit contains extended spin edit controls, like <var>TSpinEditEx</var> and <var>TFloatSpinEditEx</var>. They are very similar to <var>TSpinEdit</var> and <var>TFloatSpinEdit</var>, but provide additional features which allow a NullValue for the control and behaviors performed when the value for the control is not a valid numeric value.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            This introduction will discuss the problems the design of the controls, and the problems they are intended to eliminate.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            <b>Why another SpinEdit or FloatSpinEdit control?</b>
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            The standard controls, TSpinEdit and TFloatSpinEdit, do not support a NullValue mechanism. Also, their implementations are widgetset dependent. While this provides a control that has the look and feel native to the widgetset, the behavior also depends on the widgetset. This is especially important when the text for the control contains an invalid numeric value (otherwise not a number). In such a case, when querying the control for it's Value, the results are not consistent for the various platforms. The difference in behavior between widgetsets also prevents implementation of the NullValue mechanism, especially the possibility to leave the control empty or to display informative text inside the control about the condition.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            TSpinEditEx handles Int64 values, while TSpinEdit is limited to LongInt values. This is because TSpinEdit inherits from TCustomFloatSpinEdit and the internal member for the Value is stored using the Double type, and Double does not have enough significant digits to handle the range for the Int64 type.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            In addition, TFloatSpinEditEx can set the value for its DecimalSeparator property independent of the value in the DefaultFormatSettings for the platform or operating system. Note: Unlike T(Float)SpinEdit, the GetValue method is always derived from the actual text in the control. This is by design, and it should not be altered.
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            <b>Why not simply associate a TUpDown with a TEdit instead?</b>
+          </p>
+          <p>
+            Using TEdit with a TUpDown control has several disadvantages:
+          </p>
+          <ul>
+            <li>It does not allow floating point values.</li>
+            <li>Its range is limited to the range for the SmallInt type.</li>
+            <li>It does not properly anchor and/or align.</li>
+          </ul>
+          <p>
+            While both TSpinEditEx and TFloatSpinEditEx use a TUpDown control in their implementations, they do not use the Associate property in TUpDown. The two controls (the edit and the up/down button) are embedded in a TCustomControl (much like TEditButton) to provide proper alignment and anchoring behavior.

Applied, thanks.
The problems are about LineEndings. I first got an error :
 $ patch -p0 < ~/patch/docs-lazcontrols.diff
 (Stripping trailing CRs from patch; use --binary to disable.)
 patching file components/lazcontrols/docs/spinex.xml
 Hunk 0000001 FAILED at 1 (different line endings).
 1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file components/lazcontrols/docs/spinex.xml.rej

Then I changed LineEndings of the patch and of spinex.xml to Unix style and succeeded.
AFAIK all XML files now have Unix style LineEndings. Lets kee it that way.
SVN on Windows may be tricky. Git works better in this regard. Maybe you can use a Lazarus Git mirror, too. In future the whole project may switch to Git but that is not decided.

Noted. I didn't change the original eol-style. But i'll make sure it uses unix-style in the future,

> SVN on Windows may be tricky. Git works better in this regard. Maybe you can use a Lazarus Git mirror, too.

My experience with git is both limited and unpleasant. I'll have to revisit it.

Thanks for the assist.
