No ? Isn't the generated text passed to vid with view ... ?
(could try Tomorrow)

@9214
Then I don't get what you mean by "I expect the code to be text".
GiuseppeChillemi
@GiuseppeChillemi
I expected the "view" argument to be text. Then the dialect code interprets It.
Vladimir Vasilyev
@9214
It's not a text, it's a VID block which collect returns.
GiuseppeChillemi
@GiuseppeChillemi
Like "sell 10 shares at 50"
Ok, so we are parsing a block instead of text

@lepinekong_twitter as fair I remember, he said to check help for while and if. You can see that if takes cond [any-type!] and while, cond [block!].
If you are new (or used different languages) you may be confused about usage of () and []. An expression inside() is evaluated (e.g. a: ( 1 + 2) a; 3) and an expression inside [] is not evaluated (not sure if this is proper term). So you should use () for grouping code to run it immediately. You should use [] to pass some code/data.
ps. helps for both functions are wrong about true. It should be "true-thy value" or something like this.
ps2. I was very succinct about this description - I could miss something. I just didn't want to confuse you with unnecessary things.

I have a VIEW button which uses as DATA an "area" name, referencing the whole object ( @toomasv , yes, it is based on your code). If I define the area BEFORE the button in the VID BLOCK, everything works fine. If I define it AFTER the word is undefinied at runtime. Is it correct ?
Vladimir Vasilyev
@9214
@GiuseppeChillemi you can't directly reference something that doesn't yet exist.
view [
    b: button extra 'a [probe get in get face/extra 'text]
    a: area "this is an area text"
]

@GiuseppeChillemi
@9214 Being a dialect it is different than the main program code loading...
Vladimir Vasilyev
@9214
@GiuseppeChillemi not really.
GiuseppeChillemi
@GiuseppeChillemi
I am used to define object at the botton of the code and being able to access it since the very first lines...
@9214 I could understand this but changes the coding schemas you have in mind.
Vladimir Vasilyev
@9214
@GiuseppeChillemi you can't do that directly, without storing referring words in a block or using lit-word!s instead.
GiuseppeChillemi
@GiuseppeChillemi
It is beacuse all objects are created and you can reference them ?
*is it beacuse all objects have already been created and you can reference them all ?
Vladimir Vasilyev
@9214
As I said, you can't reference something that doesn't exist.

I needed replace/all which is not in Red's version of replace, I tried Rebol's version (got from source replace), it works great, and it even allows to give a function as third argument. Any reason why this is not integrated in Red ?

@9214 A simple "" made me crazy....
I have a bunch of dynamically created buttons
Their face/data content refer to dynamically created areas objects

    foreach [tag name] buttons [
        keep compose [
            (to set-word! name) area 300x50 (copy "") wrap
      ]
    ]

The function executed when I hit one of the buttons pass the face/data, which is <areaname> ,and then I print <areaname>/text....

I always had the same printed result despite the button I hit....

Four hours to discover that tiny "" had to be changed to (copy "") !

Does anyone knows the Logo? You can play with it here.
I want to mimic Logo's functionality. What I need is to keep a) current pen position and b) rotation. shape sub-dialect keeps pen position but it does not know about rotation. I have found out that I can rotate over some point (rotate <degree> <point>). However I am rotating using values computed by me. Here is an example. I want to draw square.
The Logo code:

; just so we can start as Red's shape
right 90 

forward 40
right 90
forward 40
right 90
forward 40
right 90
forward 40

and here is the Red's code:

view [base 300x300 red draw [

  shape [ move 100x100 ]
  shape [ 'line 40x0 ] 

  rotate 90 140x100
  shape ['line 40x0]

  rotate 90 180x100
  shape ['line 40x0 ]

  rotate 90 220x100
  shape ['line 40x0 ]
 ]
]

Is there some function or word that keeps current pen position? I want to use it like rotate 90 _pen-position_ instead of hard-coded rotate 90 220x100.

@9214
@nedzadarek can't you just keep turtle's position and heading, emitting Draw code from compiler?
ne1uno
@ne1uno
relative position? '
Vladimir Vasilyev
@9214
@nedzadarek instead of mashing Draw code by hand, you can write Logo compiler/interpreter which will track turtle's coordinates with rotation angle and produces a Draw block automatically, by reading Logo commands.
nedzadarek
@nedzadarek

@9214

can't you just keep turtle's position and heading

Right! I'm too tired to remember most obvious things: shapes command uses end-point (pen position). So, as you said, I can just keep that 2 values.
Thank you.

@GiuseppeChillemi
Is there any good Reading example in vid faces positioning ? I wish to have a Windows with Two orizontal Lines of buttons on the top, then a big area just below them on the left and many small areas spread vertically on the right. Each area should have a tittle just on the top of It.
I am going Crazy on this

Small should be on the right of 300x500

Okay, now go on and fix it :wink:

@GiuseppeChillemi
@9214 I'll look at It in few minutes. Those were my last words before falling asleep , written in my bed.
I still have bit seen the result of your examples
*still not seen

@ne1uno
@GiuseppeChillemi you can use a group-box to make some layout simpler, I don't think you can turn off the border though
GiuseppeChillemi
@GiuseppeChillemi
@9214 I have tried and it works. Now I have started experimenting.
It seems when you draw a face the cursor is moved just after it. So, if you write BELOW and you have draw the last on as ACROSS, then you have CURSOR LEFT - DRAW - CURSOR DOWN DRAW
GiuseppeChillemi
@GiuseppeChillemi
Is there a way to TRIGGER the default event connected to a face ?

Thanks for your help. I have just published the first working version: https://github.com/GiuseppeChillemi/textsplithelper.red/blob/master/TextSplitHelper.red
Attribution inside
This my first ever code published on GITHUB.
I will use this software to catalog all my notes.
But has many other applications when splitting text lines to corresponding categories
