Missing(?) method 'retrieveItem' in class FXList with FXRuby 1.2.2

Hi rubyists,

I just made the step from an older 1-click-installer to the latest one, which happens to include FXRuby 1.2.2.

And here's my problem:

I have an FXList object and would like to iterate over the elements to do some processing. "each" was the method of choice back in the times of FXRuby 1.0.29 which was what I used before.

BTW, the versions are:
irb(main):043:0> Fox.fxversion
=> "1.2.9"
irb(main):044:0> Fox.fxrubyversion
=> "1.2.2"

E:\>ruby -v
ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [i386-mswin32]

Now I get this error message:

C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.2.2-mswin32/lib/fox12/iterators.rb:62:in `each': undefined method `retrieveItem' for #<Fox::FXList:0x32a5da0> (NoMethodError)
  from C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.2.2-mswin32/lib/fox12/iterators.rb:61:in `upto'
  from C:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.2.2-mswin32/lib/fox12/iterators.rb:61:in `each'
  from E:/retritm.rb:54:in `on_process_list'
  from E:/retritm.rb:66:in `run'
  from E:/retritm.rb:73

Indeed, iterators.rb implements 'each' by yielding 'retrieveItem'.
After downloading the source code of FXRuby and rdoc-ing the 'rdoc-sources' directory (seemed appropriate), FXList does list 'retrieveItem' as one of FXList's methods.

One the other hand, with irb I get this:

irb(main):001:0> require "fox12"
=> true
irb(main):002:0> Fox::FXList.instance_methods.select{ | m | m =~ /^re/ }
=> ["releaseClipboard", "respond_to?", "recalc", "reparent", "require", "removeChild", "reject",
  "removeItem", "remHotKey", "require_gem", "releaseSelection", "repaint", "resize"]

Well. This seems to confirm that 'retrieveItem' isn't there.

Is it my fault? If so, what did I do wrong?

Should 'retrieveItem' be a method of FXList? Should it be removed from the docs? Should I report a bug (in case it's not my fault)?

Hope you had a merry rubying Christmas


Not your fault, just a bug. Please do report it, here:
