I’ve been learning to use FXRuby and it seems to be a to generate GUI apps.
I’m having a small problem with an example I’m working on. What I want is a
FXTextField that when I hit its contents are then displayed in
another textfield. The first part is easy using the TEXTFIELD_ENTER_ONLY
flag on the first text field. The trouble that I’m having is when
is pressed the text is only displayed in the second textfield for a short
time and the field then blanks itself.
Below is the relevent snippit of code that I’m using. I have Ruby 1.6.7,
FXRuby 1.0.10, and fox 1.0.11 installed. Also, the inputs.rb example
supplied with FXRuby doesn’t work correctly; you only see the output text of
the command when you left-click and drag the mouse over the output window.
I hope that someone can help me get over this hump!
class LunchWindow < FXMainWindow
# Initialize base class
super(app, “Lunch Counter”, nil, nil, DECOR_ALL, 20, 20, 700, 460)
@ssnValue = FXDataTarget.new("")

@ssnInput = FXTextField.new(nextFrame, 13, @ssnValue, FXDataTarget::ID_VALUE, LAYOUT_CENTER_Y|LAYOUT_CENTER_X|FRAME_SUNKEN|FRAME_THICK| LAYOUT_FILL_ROW|TEXTFIELD_ENTER_ONLY) # call onSsnInput when <return> is pressed. @ssnInput.connect(SEL_COMMAND, method(:onSsnInput)) FXLabel.new(nextFrame, "Entered SSN", nil, LAYOUT_CENTER_Y|LAYOUT_CENTER_X|JUSTIFY_LEFT|LAYOUT_FILL_ROW) # Test field to send output to. @echoValue = FXDataTarget.new(""); @echoField = FXTextField.new(nextFrame, 13, @echoValue, FXDataTarget::ID_VALUE, LAYOUT_CENTER_Y|LAYOUT_CENTER_X|FRAME_SUNKEN|FRAME_THICK|LAYOUT_FILL_ROW)
