View facets question

 [1/3] from: chalz:earthlink at: 14-Apr-2006 6:02

Howdy once again, all you helpful people! :) Here's "What's probably yet another dumb question"! I'm going through the VID docs at And at the bottom I come across the section Effect Facet, and there's this: oval Generate a oval image. An optional TUPLE can be used to specify the color of outside of the oval, otherwise the edge color will be used. The oval will be proportional to the size of the face. Well, specifying the color outside of an oval doesn't make much sense to me, so I wanted to play with this. But how? This is, so far, the only document I've read on doing graphical work in REBOL, so pardon my total newbieness. But I cannot quite figure out how to make it draw this oval so I can toy with it. Do I need to have an image already loaded, and this draws the oval on the image? As always, your assistance is greatly appreciated. --Charles

Really you wouldn't this one much. Though it can be handy in calender, or to create a custom radio or checkbox. view layout [backcolor black image 40x40 white effect [oval]] view layout [backcolor black image 40x40 white effect [oval silver]] view layout [backcolor black text 22x22 bold "23" blue white effect [oval silver]] view layout [backcolor black image 40x40 white effect [oval silver cross green]] if you want to draw graphic elements you would use the Draw dialect Cheers, Allen K
