[REBOL] Re: percent! - new datatype request

<< Make simple things simple, and complicated things possible
Good philosophy! << If I can imagine changing View to follow that principle, I would favor something like the following. If you write view/options layout [... some widget specs...] [resize] then ALL enclosed widgets would scale proportionally when the container resizes. I'd add widget-by-widget attributes of scalex to mean fixed-height, scaling-width, scaley to mean fixed-width, scaling-height, and noscale
Excellent! I would vote for that functionality over any that I have heard so far, unfortunately, that is not how it works. The resize flag simply allows the window to resize, not any of the faces within the window. It does however trigger the 'resize event which allows you to dynamically change the size of the faces in the layout (or do anything else you may deem neccisarry effectively enabling the resizeby example that you gave). Thanks to this discussion, I am lit up with all kinds of wonderful ideas of how to create dynamically resizing faces! Now as you can see, RT has fufilled half of your philosophy, complex things are possible. Now just to get the the simple things simple part... Enjoy, my 0.8% of $2.50. ;-) Ammon
