[REBOL] Qs: + How to add a scroll bar to text-list in /View?

From: jason::cunliffe::verizon::net at: 19-Jun-2002 7:43

I have a text-list.. search-result: text-list 800x200 [ select-url ;;; function to populate the block show search-result ;;; refresh ] ok. So now: Q1: How to enable scrolling when the block loading into search-result/data is bigger than my list's view [800x200]? Q2: How to make the scroll bar proportionate? Q3: How to tabulate and style data within each line of the text-list? Q3: Does IOS come with any better /View /VID developer docs beyond what is already scattered around?? Q4: How does RT expect people to develop IOS apps? .. Perhaps they don't - it's a way to invite developer business for themselves..[more power to them] .. or are they simply overwhelmed by life, time and resources [I know I am] Q5: Is any View /VID book in the works? The only REBOL book with /VIEW info I know of is an English translation of Olivier Auverlot's excellent French book. But there's much more needed.. Q6a: What do you all think the publishing prospects are for /View? Q6b:What do you all think the publishing prospects are for /View if oriented to IOS? Q7: Even if one only pulled together all the current knowledge, do you think that would be valuable in a single paperback / PDF? [I am assuming it would have a GOOD index] If such were published do you think it would be hopelessly out of date by that time? Is there any point until /View gets sizers and other modern GUI features implemented? [..ouch! Did I say that?] Are such in the works? Q8: Do the following un-illustrated IOS apps exist? Agenda Toolbar Journal Whiteboard If so why no screenshots? If not, then betters tell status? The irony is that when one knows how, /View is so fast and easy. But without the knowledge, the time-sink learning essential features seem quite disproportionate. thanks ./Jason
