[REBOL] Re: Problem of wraping in layout

From: brett:codeconscious at: 13-Jan-2002 10:13

Hi Philippe,

I'm not sure if this will help but you can display text with line-breaks using "as-is". This shows the difference: example-text: {Here is some text. It is made up of three lines. This is the last line.} view layout [ text as-is example-text text example-text ] Making this example, I've learnt something myself - AS-IS stops the TRIM function from being applied to your string. That is, if you do not use as-is your string will be modified. Try this after you have run the example above: probe example-text This demonstrates the issue another way. Here I swapped the order of when as-is used: example-text: {Here is some text. It is made up of three lines. This is the last line.} view layout [ text example-text text as-is example-text ] Philippe, make a small example of your problem if this post has not helped. Small focussed code snippets are a good way to discuss an issue. Cheers, Brett.
