[REBOL] text-list/picked: extra internal behavior?

From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 26-Nov-2001 11:15

Hi All, Does anyone know what extra "thing" I need to do to make the following work? I have a text-list with a label (text face) above it. When the user clicks on the label, I add stars to all the items that are currently selected, using the technique from VID Notes. print mold lst/lines foreach item lst/picked [append item "*"] print mold lst/lines This works fine, and the print statements show that lst/lines is kept in sync with lst/picked, *if* the items have been selected by the user (i.e. with the mouse). If I programmatically set the picked values, like this: clear lst/picked ; I thought maybe alter didn't like using a block, but foreach fails as well. alter lst/picked probable-parts show actor ;foreach part probable-parts show actor [ ; alter lst/picked part ;] it doesn't work. lst/lines is not modified to stay in sync with lst/picked when they click on the label in this case. I looked at the view source for text-list, but the only thing that jumped out at me (as far as extra behavior a click would cause) was this: do :act slf f/text and I couldn't figure out where :act was to see what it was doing. Must be too early. :) Thanks for any suggestions or ideas. --Gregg
