CLIM dialogs for font selection and printing (under KDE/McCLIM)

Saturday, July 30, 2005

I posted to the mcclim-devel mailing list CLIM code for creating a font selection dialog, or text style in CLIM jargon. It is based on the features of the make-text-style function.

I also posted code for a print dialog based on the KDEPrint subsystem of KDE. It requires CMUCL and the PostScript backend of McCLIM. However, it is just a proof of concept -- a.k.a. broken -- hack.

My plans for a file selection dialog are on hold due to the limitations of McCLIM's implementation of list-pane and option-pane. List panes would be a natural way of maintaining directory and file lists in such a dialog, but they can currently no longer be updated after creation.
