Toggle area wrap on/off?
[1/5] from: reboler:programmer at: 3-Nov-2001 2:31
How do I interactively change text wrapping in an area? I've tried changing face/para/wrap? and face/facets but with no luck. I'd like to have a toggle to turn wrapping on/off in an area.

Hi Alan, This might help. view layout dmo: [ across text "Wrap" wrap fwrap: check on [ set-para farea 'wrap? not farea/para/wrap? farea/line-list: none show farea ] return farea: area mold dmo 100 ] Cheers, Allen K

Hi Alan, I see Alan's beat me with an answer, (you're up early for an Australian on a Saturday morning Alan!:), but anyway, here's my example, it being slightly different to Alan's... On 03-Nov-01, alan parman wrote:

Hmmm, well this works for me... view layout [ a: area 100x50 "Here's some text, lots and lots of text." t: toggle "Wrap Off" "Wrap On" [ a/para/wrap?: t/state show a ] ] It may be that you've a lot of text and you're not setting line-list to none before a show? That's quite a gotcha with View text areas. Ie, with the above it should be... a/para/wrap?: t/state a/line-list: none show a I'm just guessing there though - line-list may not affect wrapping - not sure... -- Carl Read

Umm, please change the "Alan"s to "Allen"s in my previous post wherever appropriate... HTH. (: -- Carl Read
