2) change gtkview to connected, gtkobject to container. gtkobject should answer "^self connected" (i.e. the gtkview) in all objects but BViewports; and BViewports should get the implementation you have in BList and BText (because even though there is duplicated code, existing hierarchies are there for a purpose :-).

I suspect the existing hierarchy is wrong for gtk

I don't think so.

, that things should
move somewhat. Do you mean mean gtkview the method, or the instance
variable? Ditto for gtkobject.


I.e. the browser makes heavy use of Forms, which conflicts with the GTK
'gtk manages layout' concept: all the auto resizing and other widgets
are not designed for that. Changing the browser to use OrderedForm
rather than Form throughout makes this a lot easier: but you need to add
the OrderedForm>>horizontal: message to be able to layout the browser
windows properly.

That's fine for me as long as it still works for TK. But note that I wrote the GTK placer exactly to make Blox/GTK easier. After all users care about the appearance and not about what geometry manager is used (I understand though that it is a bit rough to have a VBox for the menu *and* a placer for the remaining widgets). We've already had a similar discussion with Mike Anderson a few months ago. :-)

Whats in the patch you attached? An updated copy of my patch?

The bits that I applied to my development sources.

Ah, go ahead and rip the invocations of #font: from the browser as I have moved them to Blox/TK (yay).
