[ALLY] Re: Wiring non-vid faces and vid faces together

From: carl::rebol::com at: 8-Apr-2001 19:28

Brett, A good question. Yes, VID was created to allow this kind of mixing, and we often do it in larger applications. The VID face definition is a superset of the View face definition. So, if you mix the two, it's best to use VID faces to start, because they have within them the View face fields as well. In fact, VID face should hold nearly all the info you need for doing dynamic layout. We often write "resize" functions that do just that, using what's already in the face pane. -Carl
