Number of selected elements in a diagram or browser
« on: March 21, 2022, 09:48:04 pm »
On a diagram, when I select an element, I get some information on the screen's bottom left corner (element name + position)
When I select several elements, I get the information about the active element (with the hashed border). Would it be possible to simply add the number of selected elements
Same could apply to the selection within the browser.

++1 seems like being C. But actually it's syntax error. You can not pre-increment a constant expression. If you could, it would just be the same as stating "2". Haha... (I'm reading that OO-book Paolo recommended and it's mainly about compiler construction).
