problems opening temporary window
I am trying to create a window of the same sort used by the file
system in the rename command in order to read in a file name. I am
trying to use the following code.
(defun getname ()
(let ((window (tv:make-window 'tv:temporary-typeout-window)))
(send window :select)
(send window :deactivate)))
This code fails catastrophically, forcing me to reboot the machine
each time. It gives me an error message saying that the screen window
could not handle the :draw-bottom-line message.
Anyone know how a window of this sort can be opened and used?
