BUG? /View ignores newlines in 'text

 [1/4] from: jschuhr::hotmail::com at: 25-Oct-2000 18:58


In the following code, the newline doesn't get processed by the 'text component: view layout [ button "Quit" [quit] text "Hello ^/world!" ] Is this by design or is a real issue? If it's by design, is there some other way to get newlines into 'text or 'label? --John +-------------------- John Schuhr [jschuhr--hotmail--com] +--------------------___________________________________________________________ Get more from your time online.

Hi John, This is by design, it allows auto sizing/wrapping of text. If you want the text to include line breaks you can specifiy the as-is facet. view layout [ button "Quit" [quit] text "Hello ^/world!" as-is ] Cheers, Allen K

Thanks Allen, Works like a charm.. unfortunately, it also displays the newline character. Is that because of the font? --John ----- Original Message ----- From: Allen Kamp Sent: 12:00 AM To: [rebol-list--rebol--com] Subject: Re: BUG? /View ignores newlines in 'text ----- Original Message ----- From: "John Schuhr" <[jschuhr--hotmail--com]> To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> Sent: Thursday, October 26, 2000 9:58 AM Subject: [REBOL] BUG? /View ignores newlines in 'text

I've noticed that occur on some platforms with older versions of /View. The newline char is not showing on my windows box, if it is showing in a 10.38 build, on whatever platform you are using, let feedback know. Cheers, Allen K
