[squeak-dev] Flaps aren't dead! They feel happy! (was Re: "More Direct Morphic": The Movie)

I use flaps! Specifically, in my experimentation with 
squeak-on-a-cellphone, I put the on screen keyboard in a flap, and open 
the flap automatically whenever keyboard focus switches to something 
non-nil:

	newKeyboardFocus: aMorphOrNil
	  aMorphOrNil
	    ifNil: [OnScreenKeyboardMorph hideFlap]
	    ifNotNil: [(OnScreenKeyboardMorph future: 200) raiseFlap].
	  ^ super newKeyboardFocus: aMorphOrNil.

It works surprisingly well for this. Being able to adjust the height of 
the keyboard by moving the flap, etc.

Cheers,
   Tony
