[REBOL] Re: Where to find "Style Chapter"?
From: anton::wilddsl::net::au at: 12-May-2007 16:14
I don't remember the "Style Chapter", but here is how to list
all the available VID styles:
print mold extract system/view/vid/vid-styles 2
And you can see a style's entire definition like this:
print mold svv/vid-styles/button
print mold svv/vid-styles/field
Getting into your editor can be done like this:
write clipboard:// mold svv/vid-styles/button
then paste into a new document in your editor.
(I use Crimson Editor on Windows, for which there is a rebol
syntax highlighter available.)
This gives you a chance to read exactly how the style
works, and an insight into how to modify it to do what
you want. I do the above steps very frequently when
creating new styles, as I want to see if there is a
built-in style which does close to what I want to
Every style can be modified with "facets" (face attributes),
which can be mentioned after a style name in a LAYOUT spec.
These words can be seen here:
print mold remove-each item copy svv/facet-words [function? :item]
So the above words can be applied to all the styles, but
some styles also have a few style-specific dialect words.
Here are the styles with specific dialect words:
foreach [style face] svv/vid-styles [if face/words [print [style
remove-each item copy face/words [function? :item]]]]
To see if the dialect expects any arguments, we do the same except we don't
remove the functions:
foreach [style face] svv/vid-styles [if face/words [print [style mold
Hope that helps, if you have any more specific questions at all
about how to do something, this is the place to ask.
