Pane Refresh Problem

 [1/3] from: coussement::c::itc::mil::be at: 2-May-2001 11:29

Hi list: For experimenting with /View, I've written another "Game of Life". The algorithm works OK with an ASCII output, but I cannot get the result in /view, because I don't know how to trigger a refresh of the pane. Here's the code I use for the visual part - max-x and max-y are global words setting the size of the life map.
show-visual: func [ /local x y main society ][ main: layout [ vh2 "Game of Life" guide pad 20 button "QUIT" [unview halt] return box 2x140 yellow return panels: box 300x300 ] society: [ origin 8x8 backdrop black across space 1x1 style alive box red 10x10 style dead box black 10x10 return ] forever [ make-live ;--- create the life map ;--- dynamically append boxes to pane for x 1 max-x 1 [ for y 1 max-y 1 [ either (alive? x y)[ append society 'alive ][ append society 'dead ] ] append society 'return ] panels/pane: layout society show panels/pane view main ] ] </snip> It works if I close the generated windowat each generation. It's for sure not difficult, but I cannot find anything in the Doc :-( Any idea ? chr==

Make a static layout and refer to the VID gadgets inside by number, in the pane attribute. Like this: view/new lay: layout [ style bx box 10x10 ; little box across bx bx return bx bx ] ; change the third box set in pick lay/pane 3 'color red show pick lay/pane 3 You could use image instead of box for a professional look, although that might slow it down a bit. If you really need to alter the layout, check out Volker Nitsch's insert-face3.r script of 10-Apr-2001 in Ally mail list. It takes a while to understand (and I made an English only version if you're interested.) but it should benefit you. Anton.
