[REBOL] Re: Question on text formatting

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 28-Aug-2002 20:19

Hi Andy, << (please remember I only started playing with Rebol a couple of weeks ago, so I keep trying to do things the C way, and when that fails, I make it simple/inelegant.... >> At two're way ahead of where I was. :) << I can't quite manage the same spacing on the leftmost scrolling box (lineup_box) as on the buttons. While I could make the lineup_box a scrolling list of buttons, it seems like too much overhead. >> Change the spacing to 1x1 in your LINEUP block, so it matches the spacing in the grid block. I added a text style to make sure the size matches that of the buttons you set as well. ; build channel lineup lineup: [ backcolor back_color origin 0x0 space 1x1 ;0x0 pad 0 style text text 80x20 ] << (this is where I want to be able to get the maximum size of the larger page that I am scrolling; so I can stop when I've scrolled through all the entries; >> Looks like grid-f/size/y is what you're after. << and if anyone knows of an easy way to force one of the buttons on the scrolling grid to be "selected" my day would be complete :-) >> FOCUS is what you use to select a specific face. I'm not sure it will do what you want here though. Buttons don't respond to many keystroke by default (you can, of course, add that behavior). I think Brett Handley did a grid style that let you move from face to face with the keyboard. Maybe it was Cyphre. So many talented people write great stuff that I lose track. :) view layout [a: button [print "A"] b: button [focus a]] HTH! --Gregg
