This is on a symbolics running genera 8.1.1 and CLIM 1.1 but the problem also appears on the SUN
I need to allow only certain instances of a class to be accepted in a certain accept statement.
I supply parameters which are used in the determination. Present-typep correctly evaluates the
parameters and returns nil for the instances that are not supposed to present. Unfortunetly the
instances present--ie a box is draw around them--anyway. I even hardwired presentation-typep so
it always returned nil and that made no difference. If i use the help key to get the suggestions for
what instances are acceptable i get the correct list with only the intances that pass the test in present,
which is based on the parameters in the accept statement.
I tried using the modifications to identity-translator-applicable-p that were posted here recently
but that didn't seem to help.
The basic question is how do I limit which instances of a class are mouse sensitive?
the basic code layout is
(accept `((unit :parameter ,test-value ...))
(if (function test-value)
Thanks for any help.
Please send a small, failing test case, so I don't have to come up with
