Allegro CL 4.1
i'm using open-window-stream, and discovering that the initargs :left
and :top appear to have little/no effect on window placement. aren't
they supposed to position the upper-left corner of the window at those
coordinates? (relative to the root, of course)
if not, what actually does? I need to place some windows very exactly
(part of the problem seems to be that subsequent windows 'tile'
diagonally, which I absolutely DO NOT want--this will be disconcerting
to our customers).
I think the standard quesiton is, what window manager are you using?
this work is for creating progress-indicator windows, which I'll
donate as soon as I'm happy with them. they're vaguely similar to the
mac-style progress windows, with a percentage-bar and some descriptive
text. the fn-calls are similar to the genera fns noting-progress and
CLIM 2 already has progresss note indicators, by the way.
