Type 'face

 [1/6] from: lp:legoff:free at: 20-Apr-2005 9:38


Hello, rebolers, Objects don't have usually a "type", except faces. Faces are objects, but with an attribute "type" : face/type: 'face What makes this word ? Is is just a flag to the show function ? thanks for help, ===Philippe

Hi Philippe, I don't know the reason, but if you make your own face, without the TYPE attribute, then viewing it gives you this error:
>> view my-face
** User Error: bad face in screen pane! ** Near: show scr-face if new [do-events] Anton.

If you make your own, it needs to have exactly the same words and in the exact same order.

Hello Gabriele, and Anton, Thanks for your help. Hooo about help...If I set the system/options/help to true, what's happen ? Is it for debugging ? ===Philippe Selon Gabriele Santilli <[gabriele--colellachiara--com]>:

Philippe, I've never seen it used in anything. I think it's unused but "reserved" for the future. Anton.

It will probably come back to bite me, but in my old card game engine, I actually re-use 'type in the face object for my own purposes. Since the origins of that script is really, really, old I suspect I was doing something inline with how CID was using 'type to store the the style name. Cheers, Allen
