[sc-dev] Getting back to ViewRedirect from a View

Hi Jost and all,

To make CV work for both Swing and Cocoa, it has to work whether or not the library is installed. So, I cannot subclass directly, but I still have to attach an action to the actual view. (Since the interfaces are identical this is not that big a deal.)

The easiest way to do this would be to have a method for every view (cocoa or swing) that provides its ViewRedirect classname.
This could be something like:

+SCSlider {
	genericName { ^'slider' }

This seems plausible, but I don't know if there is enough need to clutter up all the view classes.

Alternatively, I can just generate a Dictionary in StartUp (by reading the schemes available to GUI and looking everything up)
and keep it inside CV.

 Any thoughts, preferences or alternative approaches?

I wasn't quite sure what you were asking me, but: the only reason I used ViewRedirect for EZSlider was that relativeOrigin is not implemented yet for swing containters. EZSlider is written for cross platform, it's just that I have to redirect to the old version for swing at the moment. The
old version is EZSliderJ for swing, and the new one is EZSliderSC for
Cocoa. Once relativeOrigin is implemented for swing, there will only be
EZSlider, namely the new one.

You were subclassing EZSlider, so you have to substitute that for
EZSliderSC temporarily (I really hope sciss gets this done before 3.3,
it would really make things easier). If you want to be cross platform,
duplicate your extra methods and subclass both EZSliderSC and EZSliderJ.
In the actual code, you will the redirect class, EZSlider.

as for where to find other schemes, there is only on other one, an that is in the swingOSC library. If you install swingOSC, then you can get it
under SwingGUI.

I hope that was what you wanted to know,

Hi Jost,

I am going to rewrite the CV connect code so that it is all a method
of CV and looks up the appropriate connect action.
Where do I find the equivalents of CocoaGUI for other GUI schemes?
