[mcclim-devel] mcclim dialogs

Hello mcclim developers:

I'm in the throws of learning common lisp and mcclim and I've been able 
to piece together some working code that functions fairly well by 
reading from various mcclim specification documents, brief tutorials, 
and by looking at the various examples that come with mcclim.

I have a question regarding the proper way to set up a simple dialog for 
entering values using mcclim.

I've tried using the "accepting-values" macro directly, but I haven't 
been able to control the position or the size of the dialog when it 
appears, although I do get usable information from it. From reading the 
specifications, I've tried using the various position control 
parameters, but they seem to have no affect.

I've tried defining an application frame with a pane derived from 
"accept-values" but I haven't been successful getting that to run.

Does someone have a simple example of either, or both, of these methods 
of setting up a dialog with mcclim that they would be willing to share?

I'm using SBCL-1.0.48 with slime, if that has any importance.
