My platform is CLIM 1.0 on a UX1200 board in a SPARCstation.
I want to write a kind of LCD-display
to display to the user
and accept numbers from him. To do this I've the idea to draw a
(fixed sized) rectangle with the number representing digits in it.
Now I want the user to be able to edit the number in the box
without destroying the mask.
As I don't have detected any hint in the code-examples, the manual
and in this box to do something like this (I really have to write
the full editor functionallity by myself?) I would appreciate any advice.
Future thanks Ralf.
To restrict the length of input of accept (if that's what you want),
I suggest that you accept the input from a separate window, that has exactly
the size you want, i.e. the size of the rectangle you mentioned above.
>From my point of view, CLIM is not a very practical tool for static forms
as normally used in e.g. database queries, anyway.
