10 May : Today, I created this page to put my daily progress. And created page https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/User_talk:Suraj_Dadral/GSoC19/logs to keep users wish list.

11 May : Today, I created UI for Column Reinforcement and can be found here.

12 May : Today, I changed the UI according to suggestions by mentors and freecad community and can be found here. I compiled FreeCAD plugin for Qt Designer and started using it in creating UI.

13 May : Today, I changed the UI and implemented the front end of UI. I learned how to hide and unhide items from layout. And here are related commits: commit1, commit2 Added orientation for LShapeRebars to UI and created the required functions for handling them. And here is commit.

15 May : Modified UI and add fields "Hook Extension" and "Rounding" for LShape Rebar Hook to UI. And started writing function to Create SingleTieFourRebars Column Reinforcement via UI.

16 May : Add functions to create SingleTieFourRebars Column Reinforcement via UI. Now, user can create this through UI using following code snippet:

from ColumnReinforcement import ColumnReinforcement

FreeCADGui.Control.showDialog(ColumnReinforcement._ColumnTaskPanel())

Related git commit: commit

17 May : Today, I added initialization button to drop down menu of Rebar Addon. Now, user create SigleTieFourRebars Column Reinforcement through UI by clicking on item "Column Reinforcement" in drop down menu of Rebar Addon. And here is related commit: commit

18 May : Done changes suggested by @amrit3701 here. And here is commit. And started exploring Group Python feature object as suggested here.

19 May : Today, I added code to function makeSigleTieFourRebars() to add created rebars to a group and store data members related to column reinforcement in Group object. And related git commit is here. Now, I am exploring how to call edit dialog box, when user will double click on Group.

20 May : Today, I implemented to open edit dialog box by double clicking on group of rebars in tree view. And here is the commit: commit. To implement this, I explored scripted objects in freecad and implementation of VisGroup of Draft workbench in file Draft.py.

22 May : Today, I implemented to load values in edit dialog box from group and rebar properties. And fix error: <class 'TypeError'>: Object of type FeaturePython is not JSON serializable And related git commit is here.
I modified the code structure and related commit can be found here.

23 May : Today, I set placement for Stirrups and modified ArchRebar.py file. And related PR is here.

Coding Period (June 29 - July 26, 2019)



30 June : Done changes suggested by @amrit3701 as discussed here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=35077&start=140#p317848 and started creating dialog box for editing Number#Diameter string.

1 July : Complete implementation of dialog box for editing Number#Diameter string as discussed here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=35077&start=140#p318133 and related commit is: commit

2 - 3 July : Refactor code. Create function for code which creates x-direction and y-direction rebars. This function is executed while creating and editing Single Tie Multiple Rebars column reinforcement. commit

4 - 5 July : Create function to edit xdir/ydir rebars.
In previous implementation:
- Every time xdir/ydir rebars are deleted and recreated, when user open dialog box to edit column reinforcement. No matter if user change any parameter or not, xdir/ydir rebars were always recreated.
Now:
- xdir/ydir rebars will only be recreated when user changes the "rebars type" or "number#diameter" of xdir/ydir rebars, otherwise they will be edited.
