[ALLY] form hiding Re:(3)

From: johnkenyon:ibm at: 8-Sep-2000 2:36

Allen, Thanks for the tools - should come in useful. In general though I think there should be a more simple way of accessing help for words defined in dialects. For example, this clearly shows what input does
>> ? input
USAGE: INPUT /hide DESCRIPTION: Inputs a string from the console. New-line character is removed. INPUT is a function value. REFINEMENTS: /hide -- Mask input with a * character We need something along the lines of ....
>> help/vid field
USAGE: FIELD hide DESCRIPTION: Inputs a string from the view window. New-line character is removed. FIELD is a style value. REFINEMENTS: hide -- Mask input with a * character Carl and co, any thoughts? cheers, john

Hi John, These might help.. To print a list of style names use you can use this print-styles: func [ {Print List of Styles in master stylesheet} /sheet style-sheet [block!]{Specify a style sheet other than master} ][ if not sheet [style-sheet: system/view/vid/vid-styles] foreach [style object] style-sheet [print style] ] 8<---
