Building a user interface

Postby BasOverwater on Fri Sep 08, 2017 10:58 am

Hello, I'm new to Dyalog APL on the Mac and it has been a long time since I worked with Dyalog APL for Windows. Is there a place to look for ways to build a user interface on the Mac?
I'd like to start the easy way. The examples with ⎕WC result in errors.

'F' ⎕wc 'Form'
DOMAIN ERROR: There was an error processing the property at position 0 of the right argument
'F'⎕WC'Form'

I guess I missed something very simple. Hope that someone can help me.

Thanks and regards,

Bas

Hi Bas,

Welcome back to using Dyalog!

Our Microsoft Windows GUI objects are based on Windows Win32 interface.

This Win32 interface is not available on Mac or Linux.

For a user interface on Dyalog for Mac or Linux, we would recommend looking into using our MiServer or our new experimental HTMLRenderer object.

HTMLRenderer documentation: http://docs.dyalog.com/16.0/Dyalog%20Experimental%20Functionality%20-%20HTML%20Renderer.pdf

Link to MiServer on Dyalog's GitHub area: https://github.com/Dyalog/MiServer

Regards,

Vince

Thanks Vince,

I feared that answer! But playing with APL is nice. Missed it.
