Re: presentation coordinates, or FORMATTED-CELL coordinates

OK, I thought I was clear before, but I'll try to be more specific.
(BTW, this is Allegro, Clim 1.1, Sparc 1).
I know how Formatting-Table and -Graph work. I know that what I draw
gets placed in normalized coordinates within the body of the overall
formatting call. Scott, you remark, "What this means is that, it
doesn't matter what coordinate system you cell output in, because CLIM
will always move it to the same place in the table. So if you just
pick a normalized coordinate system...". But my problem is I WANT to
know the absolute coordinates where these things are eventually
There is no way to find out in advance.
Within my own presentation drawing code, I only get those
normalized coordinates (or whatever local system I set up). But I
want a hook into the formatting call to find out where the
presentation is placed in the window in the table or graph call.
Thanks for any more thoughts.
By the time this hook would get called, all of the user-level code
would have already been run.
I don't have a good suggestion.
