[REBOL] Re: My custom stylesheets

In order to see the effect of another stylesheet - you need to recreate the
GUI by using LAYOUT. That is, you need to call LAYOUT each time you want to
use a new stylesheet. This is because the stylesheet is interpreted by
LAYOUT to create the faces of your GUI. I think you may have found out
earlier, there is no point just changing the stylesheet itself an expecting
the changes to take effect on existing windows (faces).
In terms of structuring your GUI there are many ways.
One idea is to UNVIEW/ALL and then re-create your GUI by calling view/new
layout [....] each time you want to change styles.
Another idea is to create a main window with a subpanel (see the subpanel
howto). Then each time you want to change
to a new stylesheet, create a new subpanel face and set it inside the main
For both these solutions you will probably need to think about keeping your
layout specification block as a variable which can be copied and modified
each time you call layout.
my-layout: [ Title "Example" field]
for i 1 3 1 [
new-layout: copy my-layout
append new-layout compose [button (join "test" i)]
view layout new-layout
