[REBOL] Text-lists and what is displayed
From: adl::absentis::com at: 14-Nov-2005 14:06
I have a philosophical query. Yesterday while putting together a
little script I had a collection of objects, each of which has several
fields. I needed to get the user to choose between them but of course I
can't just set a text-list data to the list of objects. Instead I have
to create a list of 'titles' from the data with some sort of 'key'
embedded so that i can look up the chosen object afterwards. In other
dev environments normally you can simply set the list of objects as data
and then provide a function which provides the list with the display
text. Basically my question is; am I right in thinking that I am limited
in this way, I'm not missing something am I? If so is there any advice
to making this as smooth a process as possible?
