[REBOL] Problem with dirty?

From: reboler::programmer::net at: 10-Apr-2002 13:28

The View Documentation says the following: dirty? A LOGIC flag that indicates that the text of the face has been modified. Whenever editing is performed upon a text face, this flag will be set to TRUE. I read last years thread about "Bug in Area", and got some tantalizing clues but... I have a 'box (view-box) with one of two panes (picture-pane or text-pane). 'text-pane is an 'area, modified with flags: [field]. When I do the following ... view-box/pane: text-pane I edit the text in text-pane I check the state of 'dirty? ... I always get 'none This is true for view-box/dirty?, view-box/pane/dirty?, or text-pane/dirty?. Here is the code I check it with ... if text-pane/dirty? [ if request {File was changed! Save it now?} [exit] ] ..., the above being part of a function. The 'request is never called, even after editing the text in text-pane. Does anyone have any ideas why? Something to do with panels/panes? Do I need to set the dirty? flag myself? If so, what event do I need to catch? (face = text-pane event = 'down ???) Thanks in advance for your time.
