AltME: R3-GUI

Messages

Henrik
Yes, I meant using DRAW directly. Using SVG, I'm not a fan of either, as it doesn't work very well for pixel accuracy.

Having trouble using 'load-gui from the Atronix build. Seems http://atronixengineering.com/r3/r3-gui.r3 is not accessible. Anyone else having this problem? Do you know where I can get r3-gui.r3?
I've tried http://development.saphirion.com/resources/r3-gui.r3, but it doesn't seem to be compatible.
I've also tried downloading Atronix's latest Development release, but 'load-gui is also not working on that.
Any ideas?

I'm having the same problem, and I don't know the solution either.

That's funny.  I tried to download and run the Windows version of their REBOL, 32-bit and 64-bit, to try on my Windows 7 computer, and I got a message about it not being compatible with my computer.  I was going to try a different download option to see if it was a corruption issue.

Bo, what's happening with the Saphirion R3-GUI version? Does it crash?

Not wanting necessarily to steal the thunder, but maybe, GUI wise, it is a time to start looking into the Red option ....

Robert: It seems to not be compatible with the Atronix R3-GUI, because my program runs fine when 'load-gui works. With Saphirion's, my program errors out with:
** Script error: / does not allow none! for its value2 argument
** Where: do resize-panel actor all foreach do-actor either -apply- apply case view do either either either -apply-
** Near: do bind bind/copy [
    size: viewport-box/bottom-right

Sorry guys. We deployed a new website on Friday and a few files did not get transferred over. We'll have this fixed soon.

ddharing, wouldn't it be best to use something like 'load-thru for something as critically important as r3-gui.r3 ?
Bo
I was thinking about something similar as well. A small checksum file could be placed on the Atronix site along with r3-gui.r3, and 'load-gui on the client could compare the checksum of the local copy of r3-gui.r3 against the one on the site. If it was different, then it could download the new copy.
ddharing
That's a good suggestion. I'll pass it along to Shixin.

Bo
Do you know when 'load-gui will be working again?

ddharing
It should have already been fixed. Sorry. It will be working tomorrow even if I have to do it myself.
Bo
Thanks David!

Bo, we have a temporary workaround for the load-gui issue ahead of a more permanent fix.
To give you a little background, we migrated our main website to Squarespace which doesn't allow direct access to the directory. This means that we can't host individual files from Squarespace. The only workaround for this is to create a URL mapping in Squarespace to point to our old 1&1 server. Unfortunately, Rebol3's HTTP protocol does not support redirects. So, because of a combination of Squarespace and Rebol3 limitations, we don't have a clean solution.
The temporary workaround is to download the Atronix version of r3-gui.r3 from this URL: http://s293761966.onlinehome.us/r3/r3-gui.r3. In your script, "do" this file instead of using load-gui.
We are in the process of creating a new sub domain (rebol.atronixengineering.com) and will release new builds of Rebol which will point there. Additionally, we plan to make the download optional -- if there is no local file.

Bo
OK. That seems to work. But I wonder if something changed. My script that used to work is now giving me the following error:
REBOL Host Failure:
Parent window can't be found
ddharing
That is strange. I just looked at the source for load-gui. I don't see how that could be happening.
BTW, the new subdomain is working. The new URL is http://rebol.atronixengineering.com/r3/r3-gui.r3.
Robert
Bo, are you sure you use the right R3 version?
Bo
I just downloaded it from Atronix.
ddharing
Bo, I just posted the new binaries with updated URLs. Please go to http://www.atronixengineering.com/downloads.
