mac_styles branch crash when spinbox does not have enough room
User & Date: nab 2020-01-13 08:05:52

  1. icomment:
    while using mac_styles branch I had to write:
    after 1 [list doDesiredEval args]
    a lot in order for stuff to be smooth and not crashing.
    also for toplevel creation/destroy I had to use a delay mechanism for not my app to crash.
    something like that:
    proc nsWin_sleep {ms namespace} {
        namespace upvar $namespace nsWin_sleepV localnsWin_sleepV
        after $ms {set localnsWin_sleepV 1}
        vwait localnsWin_sleepV
    proc win_modifyDelay {} {
        nsWin_sleep 100 Dlightmain
    proc win_deiconifySequence {win} {
        if {[tk windowingsystem] eq {aqua} && $::tcl_platform(osVersion) >= 18} {
            update idletasks
            ::tk::unsupported::MacWindowStyle appearance $win darkaqua
        wm deiconify $win
        if {[tk windowingsystem] eq {aqua}} {
    proc win_deleteSequence {delay win} {
        destroy $win
        if {[tk windowingsystem] eq {aqua}} {
            nsWin_sleep $delay Dlightmain
            update idletasks
    hope this helps.
