[REBOL] Re: Weirdness with Request boxes

From: g:santilli:tiscalinet:it at: 5-Feb-2002 13:18

Hello [SunandaDH--aol--com]! On 05-Feb-02, you wrote: S> I'd assumed that the various Request-xxx View words were S> modal. I think that was the intention, but /View (or maybe it's just VID?) seems to have problems handling modal windows. IMHO, it's best to avoid modal UI at all; when that is not possible, you should "disable" (or close) the "parent" window while showing the "child" (modal) one. A simple way to disable a window is to put a tansparent face that covers it at the tail of its pane. (I usually apply an effect such as GRAYSCALE to show to the user that the window is disabled.)
