I do not want to sound unappreciative, or start some flamewar, but
given that Clozure CL is in its early stage I think it is important to
seed the GUI example pool with samples that are Apple Human Interface
Guidelines compliant (http://developer.apple.com/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/AppleHIGuidelines/
look for Alert)
We had similar kinds of discussions with MCL for quite some time. It
took a long time to finally replace the hand made dialogs (which broke
over time) with HIG compliant ones based on high level tool box code.
Apple makes this pretty easy actually. I think I even saw some CCL
sample code somewhere to just use NSAlert (http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Cocoa/Reference/ApplicationKit/Classes/NSAlert_Class/Reference/Reference.html
I am all for including a couple of essential dialogs into CCL similar
to MCL. y-or-n-dialog, choose-file/folder *... come to mind. These
should not even be examples. They should be built in.
all the best, Alex
