[REBOL] Re: Checkbox state is not changing

From: john_kenyon:mlc:au at: 6-Sep-2001 9:16

Hi, I think an upgraded help function should address some of these problems. help native! lists all of the native words.

Fictional function, help/dialect view function! ; or some other syntax to show words available in dialect help/dialect view face or help/dialect layout field maybe extend to help/dialect parse thru Comments? Cheers, John On 06-Sep-01, Ammon Cooke wrote:

With VID, you do need a spec sheet. With text-list for instance, data's not enough. There's picked and other words you need to know about. This is mainly a docs problem though. Currently you have to guess that "Data: Used by VID for storing other information about the face. Outside of VID this field can be freely used by programs." means, in relation to check, where its checked state is stored. Let's hope that View book is out soon...
