It sure does. My custom control is now drawing itself just fine.
It took me a small bit of fiddling, but not much, to figure out that
"include Responder" is required before I can call FXMAPFUNC.
I had thought that FXMAPFUNC was legacy stuff... I misunderstood this
FXMAPFUNC is mentioned in the discussion of flaws with earlier
releases of FXRuby, and not mentioned again after that.
One of the examples using FXMAPFUNC was called "scribble-orig.rb", and
the "scribble.rb" doesn't use it. That's another thing that made me
think that FXMAPFUNC was strictly a legacy function.
FXMAPFUNC doesn't appear (that I can find) in the API docs for FXRuby
1.4 or 1.6-- another reason I thought it was deprecated. Neither does
Responder. Should they be in the API docs?
I'm not complaining... just explaining where a newby got misled.
You've been very helpful, and FXRuby has been the most enjoyable GUI
framework I've tried so far. I've done Windows, OS/2 PM, TK, and both
flavors of Java GUI. The reason I don't do GUIs is because the
frameworks drive me to drink. FXRuby might change that.
Thanks again, Lyle.
