[ALLY] Re: object to layout?
From: ingo:2b1 at: 1-May-2001 6:36
we were nearly there, the following is what I wanted (this
way changes in the fields are reflected in the object) ...
>> data: make object! [ test1: "The first test" test2: "the next test" ]
>> lay: copy [across tabs 60]
== [across tabs 60]
>> foreach elem next first data [
[ append lay compose [text (to-string :elem) tab
[ (to-set-word :elem) field (to-path reduce ['data :elem]) return]
== [across tabs 60 text "test1" tab test1: field data/test1 return text "test2" tab test2:
field data/test2 return]
>> view layout lay
thanks again ...
Once upon a time Larry Palmiter spoketh thus:
