[REBOL] Re: VID Gurus needed 2

Hi Robert, << Ok, first thing is, what is this 'with block for? >> It sets values for the backdrop face that is used for drawing. It adds the 'lines word as a reference to DRAW part of the effect block, so you can reference it more easily. << But how does the face get's updated? Or is it because we are inside the redraw routine of this face? But than when does the draw dialect jumps in?
REDRAW is called just before the face is drawn, so you can modify it there and the changes will then be seen. So, what's happening is that the draw commands are being append to the effect block for the face that is about to be shown. --Gregg
