Discussion 3 - Vinayak Kashyap

Vinayak Kashyap

Part 1
In detail, describe a feature of Squeak that you have found particularly useful. What is the feature? Why is it useful? How do you envoke it?

I found the hierarchy view of the System Browser to be very useful. In general, the system browser itself is very easy and helpful to work with. However, when creating a class that is an extension of an existing system class, the hierarchy view can be useful. It's helpful becuase you can easily view/acess the methods of the parent classes and can navigate to explore the different functionality of the classes. To envoke this view, highlight a class and then choose the hierarchy button from the system browser. This brings up another window with a tree like structure of that class and its super classes.

Part 2
Find two posts that you think are useful. Link to them on your original page and explain why you found them particularly useful.

Useful post 1: Discussion 3 - Joung-Goo Lee
Lee talks about making a morphic project link using the InternalThreadNavigationMorph. Basically, morphs can be linked to each other like a presentation. This can be very helpful because it lets you make different morphic objects and yet there is a common method that can be used to navigate among the objects.

Useful post 2: Discussion 3 - Sashmit Bhaduri
Providing the user with an interface to select a file will definitely be useful for the milestones. Sashmit describes how to open such an interface using FileList2. It is also fairly easy to specify more options, the most important being getting user input for the chosen file.
