Stored procedures
Runs an action (defined by programming) with support for Undo/Redo. This function is linked to the "Modification of the interface by the end user" feature.
This function is mainly used when creating an editor by programming (see the "Notes").
Example
WinEdDo(WIN_MyEditor, ProcCreateCap, "New")
INTERNAL PROCÉDURE ProcCreateCap(sCap)
pNew is Control
pNew <- ControlCreate("STC_" + GetIdentifier(), typText, 150, 150, 80, 20)
pNew..Caption = sCap
WinEdDeclareUndo(ProcCancel)
INTERNAL PROCÉDURE ProcCancel()
ControlDelete(pNew)
END
END
Syntax
WinEdDo(<Window Name> , <Procedure Name> [, <Parameter 1>, ...,  <Parameter N>]
<Window Name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of window or internal window to use. This window must be in modification mode (WinEdActive).
<Procedure Name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of WLanguage procedure to run. The code of this procedure must call WinEdDeclareUndo. The actions of this procedure will be taken into account in Undo/Redo.
Note: Using an internal procedure provides a direct access to the local variables.
<Parameter 1>: Any optional type
First optional parameter that will be passed to the procedure.
<Parameter N>: Any optional type
Nth optional parameter that will be passed to the procedure.
Remarks

Use example

WinEdDo is used to create custom actions (control creation for example) that support the undo/redo.
Let's take a simple example: creating an editor of graphic objects. A button is used to create a shape. The user must have the ability to cancel the creation of the shape. The following operations are performed:
  • Switching the window to modification mode (WinEdActive).
  • Calling WinEdDo. The procedure called by this function is used to create the shape. This procedure also contains the call to WinEdDeclareUndo. WinEdDeclareUndo is used to define the behavior in case of user cancelation.
  • Switching the window to normal mode (WinEdActive).
The end user can cancel this action (CTRL + Z or call to WinEdUndo) then eventually redo it (CTRL + Y or call to WinEdRedo).

[ + ] This educational example illustrates the power of WLanguage regarding object-oriented programming.
This example is an editor of graphic objects.

You have the ability to:
- move, resize the objects
- perform selections with the lasso or with the mouse
- cut/copy/paste objects
- delete/duplicate objects
- save the created documents and print them.

The main technical features presented and documented in this example are as follows:
- managing a clipboard of objects
- managing UNDO/REDO
- serializing and deserializing objects
- OOP
- algorithms for managing graphic objects (proportional resize operations, management of movement rules, etc.)
