Re: Command Table Menu Inheritance
Date: Tue, 1 Feb 94 13:04:24 CST
When do menu actually inherit commands from command-tables?
I ignored the following minor inconvenience so far, but
now that CLIM2.0 is getty much more stable everywhere, may
be this can be cleaned or clarified:
"Is the only reliable way to get commands to come up
predictably in the menu-bar to list them one
by one, is that to be expected?"
Below is an example a friend passed to me that does
not seem to inherit a command where I thought it should.
(We assume the :MENU option defaults to T as described
in the documentation.) Any comment?
As Scott pointed out you should use :inherit-menu t
(define-application-frame frame2 ()
Unfortunately there is a bug in the handling of :inherit-menu in ACL CLIM
2.0. I'm going to make a patch for CLIM 2.0 final which I can send to you
if you want.
Also we experience strange effects when recompiling application
frame definitions with additional commands, or when dynamically
adding new definitions in two versions of CLIM2.0 we tried.
Even when restarting a new frame (after destroying the previous one)
we do not get the new commands, except those explicitely listed
one by one. The example below can be used to test these cases as well.
Could you be more specific about the circumstances under which this problem
occurs? As a workaround you might try removing all the command tables and
then reloading your code. You can use
to do this.
