CLIM mail archive
I'd appreciate some help on displaying a column of text down the right
side of my window. The text is not in its own pane because I don't want
the pane border that I can't shut off in MCL CLIM.
The text is actually a series of short paragraphs to be displayed like a
one column newspaper.
I tried (filling-output (window :fill-width column-width)
(format window "~A" text-paragraph))
after (stream-set-cursor-position* window column-left column-top)
which got the first line right, but wrapped all the way to the left
side of the window. Actually, I wrapped the filling-output with
formatting-item-list and formatting-cell.
What should I have done?
In the future, the paragraphs will be selectable as units. Does that change
the recommended approach?
Thanks in advance, Seth Powsner Powsner@NLM.NIH.GOV @YaleMed.Bitnet
