[REBOL] Re: [NEWBIE]: Questions about VID

Hi Silvia, On Monday, October 31, 2005, 6:40:31 PM, you wrote: SB> What is the difference between a face and a layout? I can't understand SB> exactly how can I use them and if using one of them instead of the other SB> produces different results. A face is a rectangular section of the screen; a window is a face too. A face can contain other faces inside it. LAYOUT is a function that produces a window face with other faces in it based on the VID dialect you provide. So, the result of LAYOUT is actually a face. LAYOUT, taking a dialect block, is much more high level that creating faces directly, which are more low level. Hope this gets you started. :) Regards, Gabriele. -- Gabriele Santilli <> --- Colella Chiara software division ---
