Recently, my boss said he wanted a "Demo" button on the title screen of our
"No Sweat, I said."
See, I thought I could get away with something like:
(view-click-event-handler (car (windows)) #@(300 300))
(view-click-event-handler (car (windows)) #@(127 483))
Not So. See, the screen updates don't seem to be happening. So I thought
I'd try stuff like:
Throwing in a few (event-dispatch) calls, and
Throwing in a few (eval (get-next-queueud-form) calls.
Didn't seem to have any effect.
Right now, I'm (eval-enqueueing a form that does the first thing and then
(eval-enqueues a form that does the next thing which (eval-enqueues...
This is ugly, but it's all I can find that works.
Unfortunately, it seems to take geometrically more time to defun the demo
function that does all this.
Last night, I started an eval and it took so long, I gave up.
Any better answers?
PS, I do also include a message window and move the cursor under program
control for the demo, but left those calls out for clarity here.
