[REBOL] Re: CREdit free editor

From: agem:crosswinds at: 29-May-2001 20:07

I once thought - could it be possible to use a normal text-face, and write the colored parts as faces about it? There are some functions to locate pixel-position of characters, and text-size, so we could look where and how big the colored parts are? They would be transparent for events, so all mouse.. would go thru the text and handled with the usual area-handler. Which is patched with a 'color-text-refresh after a change. Then, we could remove all faces after a key-press, edit in single-color, and refresh colors after some typing-silence. Or use a switch-key between edit/browse mode. Edit is without colors, browse-mode colored, also hypertext could be activated. Click on a word and a »source word« pops up.. Depending on types. Url starts browser, files edit text, strings pops the translation resources of project ;-) then, iam not sure about speed-penalties. Scrolling in rmud is very fast. hm. anyone compared text in 'draw with text with faces? But in this cases all edit-code has to be rewritten.. Just thoughts. -volker
