[VID] resizing areas

 [1/6] from: mattsmac::hotmail::com at: 23-Jan-2004 16:21


Ok, I thought I had this working. I have a layout with an area in it. I want to resize the area. Let's call the area 'content'. So I set Then I want to reform the text in the area to fit it's new size. So I do the following tmp: copy content/text content/size: 800x600 content/pane-size: 800x600 clear content/text content/text: copy tmp show content But after all that the text fills the same amount of space it did before. This means that it either is not using the full width of the area if the area gets bigger, or it overflows the area if the area got smaller. What am I doing wrong?

Re: [VID] resizing areas Hi, You don't have to do all this. The problem is that you have to set content/lines to none. This facet hold some values used by the View engine to know where to cut the text (a sort of right margin indexes). So you just have to do this : content/size: 800x600 content/lines: none show content DideC

That doesn't work for some reason. That line 'content/lines: none' generates the following error ** Script Error: Invalid path value: lines ** Where: resize-areas ** Near: content/lines: none contscrol/resize/y content/size/2 contscrol/size/2: ** Press enter to quit... Maybe it's the version?? I'm using View/Pro if that makes a difference. Matt Hi, You don't have to do all this. The problem is that you have to set content/lines to none.

I figured it out, it is content/line-list: none, at least in this version _________________________________________________________________ Scope out the new MSN Plus Internet Software =97 optimizes dial-up to the max! http://join.msn.com/?pgmarket=en-us&page=byoa/plus&ST=1

Re: [VID] resizing areas Oh, yes sorry, Its LINE-LIST not LINES. You have to do this also if you change the text in the area, the font size, style or name... In fact, all changes that can result in a modification of the text rendering. DideC
