Hello, and welcome to "Obscure Undocumented Features Of REBOL"!!
Today's question comes from Alan who is trying to make sense of some
of the confusing behaviors of VID styles. Congratulations Alan, your
question was chosen at random from the bottom of the email box.
Change the flags in the face:
view layout [
area with [flags: [field]]
The two fields will tab between each other but the area will not and
the tabs will go into the area.
Your question rated a fun-factor of 8.7 and therefore you get a bonus
question answered for you... here it is:
Question: So what are the available flags??
It's a secret!
Just kidding. ;)
The flags you can use are:
field -- behave like a standard field meaning that text is highlited
upon selection and the clear-fields function will clear the text in
tabbed -- tab and return will move the focus to the next valid face
return -- return key activiates the action block of the face
