[REBOL] Re: how to offset position of window?

From: jelinem1::nationwide::com at: 27-Apr-2001 8:20

OMG! This one word is what I have been yearning for for a long time! Thanks! While writing to the list, I've wanted to say for awhile that I started with view when it was in beta (open beta) and had tried my best (putting in alot of time) to write a "simple" program to keep a checkbook: add, update and delete a list of checks. The documentation was skeletal; I ended up figuring out much of what I needed by hacking through the VID objects. I was not happy with my workarounds, and finally got hung up on how to delete a record from the list. Praise Carl and RT for REBOL/View 1.1! I actually hesitated to download it because of my earlier disappointments, but now that I have it I've found it to be as easy as I demand it to be. I've returned to my checkbook program and replaced the ugly, non-working list code with sleek text-list code which works! I've also revisited another project I started and gave up on cause it took too much time, which is actually intergrated in to my work. Soon it will be complete and I'll be able to show it off to my co-workers! Ok, so I could have used 'list to do the same thing, but I don't think using 'list "makes simple tasks simple". Now, I've virtually left my old love, REBOL/Core, for a new romance: REBOL/View! And I know that there are all kinds of new cool words that I don't even know about yet 'cause I keep seeing them pop up in emails on this list, so keep 'em coming! - Michael Jelinek BTW Of course it is amazing at the speed of releases and number of platforms available for such a small group of people. However if you've ever seen Carl it's understandable as he visibly radiates energy and enthusiasm. It was obvious at the Sacramento Amiga fair-thingie a few years back how much he loved his work. He's made me a believer! Oh, and I have been a BASIC programmer at heart also for many years. Really really liked AMOS/Pro for the Amiga. Actually, that's what my last incarnation of the checkbook program was written in.

I don't know the answer, but ... view center-face layout [ .. ] will center your layout -- Graham Chiu
