This irritated me for a while, until I realized I could now just purchase physical copies of the last two and I'd have everything in Perl Bookshelf 3.
Well, once I actually purchase them, which won't be far off here, most likely. I can usually convince myself that self-gifting is okay around Christmas time, and I typically recieve a few Borders certificates anyway.
On to actual work-related things: The code I used to glue together multiple listboxes. Still crude, because I've got to provide a unified interface to them and I haven't done that yet, but they select together, and when one is selected the others show that same selection; drag-selecting moves them all to the last one dragged to, as I intended.
It's always spiffy when a plan comes together.
I am worried that selecting on each one will actually trigger selections on each one, which could cause problems; probably, the easiest way around that would be to catch and nullify the selection events of three of the listboxes, so that one is always bringing up the email text popup.
Every once in a while I hit a major snag in the code and become tempted to post to Perlmonks, and I've found that, typically, it's not a major snag -- I only thought it was. If I throw another twenty minutes at the problem after I become desperate, usually it kind of unravels.
Someday soon here, I'll actually be kind of useful.
