[squeak-dev] Help: pluggable widgets for forms

I have experimented with a number of approaches in the past:

  *   Read-only PluggableTextSpec with a text with a TextAnchor to an ImageMorph
  *   Read-only PluggableTextSpec with a text with a TextFontReference to a FormSetFont
  *   PluggablePanelSpec with an ImageMorph child (specify a symbol for #children)


However, all these approaches don't support resizing the form later.

I think a PluggableImageMorph that supports changing the image later and scaling it into bounds (either fit or cut) would be a nice extension for Morphic-Pluggable Widgets.

I suspect that Subbu is looking for sometihng in the toolbuilder world; and it correct that there isn't anything therein. ToolBuilder is pretty much solely set up to make the basic programming tools right now.

It *shouldn't* be too hard to add a bitmap viewing pane to the system. I like to hope, anyway...
