TextMorphs support display of text with emphasis. They also support reasonable text-editing capabilities, as well as embedded HOT LINKS

Squeak - Dev mailing list
Hi Folks,

I searched the web and wiki and did not find any examples of Hot Links or keyboard shortcuts.
Editor and its Sub Classes initializeFOOKeyBars does not show anything.



Any pointers?


Motivation:

For Doc, I want to code for links to stuff, similar to what you get in Emacs org-mode  https://orgmode.org/manual/Link-Format.html#Link-Format


In Emacs, to navigate to the link, I type Ctrl-o   to open it .


Now, the links do not have to be hypertext to the WWW, links to HelpBrowser on a topic would be useful.


I guess I could , upon completion of the search, return DoIts, but hot links bound to a key would fit the idiom better.


thank you for your time.



P.S. I am inferring that a typical Workspace encapsulates the TextMorph doo-hickey, if it is one of the other editor types, please let me know.

thx

On windows you can mark text i pane and press alt + 6. Then you can change emphasis and link etc. It's a not much used feature so I would expect some bit rot.

Best,
Karl

You can see such hotlinks in action if you look at Help->Core Packages.
Class names are linked to their definitions.

See TextAction class. Its subclasses are used for hotlinking. See
SmalltalkEditor>>handleEmphasisExtraWith: for an example of its use in
text editor.

Perfect! 

Thank you.

Copy-n-paste to a Workspace and the Link functionality still works.

I will investigate and incorporate. 

Fun fact, Alt-6 in X-Windows WindoMaker switches to Virtual Desktop 6 (so fast, I thought Squeak exploded with the keybinding! (: ), so I cannot use those bindings for the attribute menu.


Actually, that would be a fun keybinding  #explode 

cheers and thanks again.

Keybindings are a little cramped  (at least on windows).
Control+1 to 8 is docking bar menus.
Alt + numbers do different actions in text fields. Not sure where it is documented.
The alt + numbers items are not reachable with mouse (+ control keys) I think.

If you swap/ duplicate control and alt it gets really confusing, and maybe not working.

Best,
Karl

Help->Keyboard Shortcuts :-).

Programming instructions in http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/1844

Some important pages from Squeak Swiki are also available through Help.

Thank you.

I disabled my WIndow Manager's key binding and the menu popped up.

It appears that binding to the comment of a class is broken as it brings me to a Class Browser.

But that is o.k. the important thing is that I can create hyperlinks.

Thank you all very much.

Hi Karl!

Then you can change emphasis and link etc. It's a not much used feature so I would expect some bit rot.

It works fine. :-) I extensively use it when writing the release notes through the Help Browser.

Best,
Marcel

Christoph Thiede

Hi all,


I think Karl made an important observation here: You cannot invoke the #changeEmphasis: dialog via mouse. This is a bit pity because in general, Squeak emphasizes (that was flat) intuitive UIs whereas keyboard shortcuts cannot be learned without propaganda or reading the documentation. I think all functionality should be available via mouse, too.


How would you think about inserting a link to #changeEmphasis: into the TextMorph menu, just below (or above) "Set font..."?


Best,

Christoph


PS: Thanks, Tim, cacao is in the air :D
