Hi, I'm using CLIM 1.0 for MCL 2.0 (both beta) and wonder how to let
the user operate the scroll-bars. The manual mentions scrolling in
chapter 24.3.2. The Viewport and Scrolling in CLIM. It says
clim:window-set-viewport-position can be used to scroll a window. The
programmer can of course use this function, but how can the user
operate the scroll-bar, to give the same effect?
I have made an application frame and supplied the :scroll-bar option
to several panes. The scroll-bars appear, but never seem to be active.
Do I have to tell CLIM how big the drawing plane actually is (the
manual says its infinite...)? Do I have to use platform specific
functions and loose portability?
You have to be in the CLIM input loop for everything to work
properly. So, after you have displayed the information, you
could do READ-CHAR or STREAM-INPUT-WAIT on a CLIM window stream.
