[REBOL] Pane Pain
From: sanghabum:aol at: 30-Sep-2001 6:06
I asked this a few weeks ago, and I think maybe my question got lost in the
general excitement. I still haven't worked it out for myself, so I hope you
don't mind if I ask again.
I have two separate panels. One's a floating control panel and the other is
the user's main display. When they click a control button panel, focus should
go to a field on the main display.
The only way I can find to do this is to unview and view again the main
display. This creates an annoying flicker. I appreciate that I may need to
do this when the main display is buried or minimised, but I can't find an
unflickering way to do it in other cases.
There's some sample code below which also demonstrates a little mystery under
(at least) Windows/98...try this:
--Click "Control button"
--Minimize the Main Display
--Click "Control button" again
And--et voila!--the Main Display cannot be unminimized!
(The answer is extra code is handle the strange offset that Main Display
acquires during this procedure).
ControlPanel: layout [
Button "Control button" [unview MainDisplay
MainDisplay: layout [UserEntry: Field 500x200]
view/new/Title ControlPanel "Control"
view/new/offset/Title MainDisplay ControlPanel/offset + ControlPanel/size
Anyway, any help would be appreciated,
