[REBOL] Re: how to resize a backdrop

From: arolls:idatam:au at: 19-Nov-2001 17:44

No no. I see this very problem on windows NT4 (and 2000, I am pretty sure...) That's why I was experimenting to find a solution. Here is a console session that works for me:
>> view/new lay: layout [size 200x200 bd: backdrop blue effect [oval]] >> lay/size: lay/size + 50x50
== 250x250
>> bd/size: bd/size + 50x50
== 250x250
>> show lay
; here I see backdrop is still clipped too small ; although oval has been redrawn in larger size ; see
>> wait 0.001
; here I see clip box expands to correct size ; and can see all of the oval again == none And I made a mistake in my last post. The first [wait 0] is not quite enough. I need to wait some amount time (greater than zero). I shouldn't have included the second [wait none] as that just confused the issue. [wait none] also causes the backdrop to resize... Anton.
