For the past few days I've been burning my fingers developing a Text Datatype subclass. I wonder if anybody can shed some light on this:
The Text Datatype uses a linked list of struct Line (see datatypes/textclass.h) to gather lines of text for display. Each struct Line represents a segment of text. Now, the ln_Flags field in the structure can carry a LNF_LINK flag to indicate that the line segment is a link.
What I don't understand is what the flag really is for. What can the Text Datatype do for me if I actually pass a LNF_LINK-flagged segment as part of the linked list? Can the datatype tell (and more importantly, report) that the link has been clicked on?
Or is it just a once-planned feature that never materialized?
