Plus particulièrement pour Arnaud, voici la réponse à ce fait Weld et
ses patches consécutifs ;)
Pour info, l'implémentation des boîtes de dialogue actuellement faite
via VCL toolkit pourra maintenant être native sous GTK3 via Weld.

À bientôt

Yes, so this "welding" makes it possible to replace the vcl

namely GTK. The dialogs are already described by the GtkBuilder file

the GTK implementation can use those directly. Non gtk platforms
continue to use the vcl implementation with the vcl parser of the
GtkBuilder file format which maps them to equivalent vcl widgets, so
other platforms should generally remain as they are.

Writer's "insert->table dialog", "table->split cells" and
"insert->special characters" are some concrete examples of this at the

Under GTK you can tell if its a welded dialog because the themeing is,
by definition I suppose, fully correct. Stuff like animated checkboxes
for example and fade in of entry borders on focus-in now work. Password
entries that indicate if the caps lock is on, and the semi-transparent
overlay scrollbar are some other indicators that a dialog has been
converted over.
