As I have understood, it seems that :own-window t for accepting-values
or NOTIFY-USER is not available yet in McCLIM. I really have my heart
set on using a pop-up windows to manage prefs etc. but it seems
What I want to do is:
1 Create a child window
2A Populate with text-fields, checkboxes, and buttons (like gadet-test)
2B Add "Save" button and method that returns/stores the values selected
3 Move focus to child, put original window in background
4 Destroy child window, refocus on original window
It certainly seems possible looking at the Clim spec, but when I google
it seems that I can't find much about it or examples. Sooo i am
wondering if there is a reason for this...
So if anyone has a nice example* of how to do this that would be a
dream, and if not the next best thing would be if someone had a clear
understanding of how it should be donwe. And if not some vauge ideas on
how to get started, and where to look would be excellent!
(*Even just a "About" pop-up example would be loveley!)
