Now that I know I can get messages from myself through info-mcl, can I
get one from you?
I'm working on a time clock program, in which employees (approx. 75)
must be able to choose their names from a scrolling list. I assume that
a sequence-dialog-item should work for this, and to an extent it does.
The problem is that there is no visual feedback when you do a
mouse-down and drag in the content area of the scrolling list. Click on
Abe and drag down to Zeb, and sure enough, Zeb will get selected, but
there's no visual feedback in between, not even highlighting, even if
automatic scrolling is triggered. When auto-scroll happens, you can
select a name that isn't even displayed in the content area until you
lift up the mouse.
Is there another way I should expect to do this? Is there a fix? I've
dabbled very little in LispWorks, but it seems to work just fine there.
I'd rather not switch to another Lisp or to another language, but this
is a deal-buster for me.
P.S. Thanks to Alexander Repenning for providing a patch that gives
"immediate" (but slow) refreshes when the thumb part of the scrollbar
is dragged. This is a different problem.
