modal dialogues in clim?
We are using Clim 2.0 beta from Lucid.
We are experiencing some problems with modal dialogs.
When I call (accepting-values (stream :own-windows t ...) ...)
I would like to have a modal dialog window popped up,
i.e. the application is switched to a state so that
the dialog is the only window the user can use.
Motif defines four general modes: modeless, primary modal,
application-modal and system-modal.
It seems that the window of the accepting-values-application-frame
is modeless. I can bring the "original application-frame"
(which is a parent of the dialog-frame) to the front, I can even
activate the menu-bar and pull some menus down!
How can I switch the mode of the dialog to be at least
primary-modal (better application-modal)?
Another (minor) problem is that the window-decorations of
the dialog window is like any other window (i.e., it has a
zoome box etc.), which is not in accordance to the Motif Style Guides.
If I supply the :label-option, the label
is printed in the title-bar of the motif-window and is repeated
in what looks like a title-pane (neither usefull nor good-looking).
Any help appreciated - Stefan B.
