Code Tester Shell for Pascal

By J. E. “Jeff” Fox, Houston, TX

Writing code for the Macintosh can be a very tedious process, unless you start with a shell program. The program in this example is designed to provide a simple shell supporting a window, menus, text edit and update events. You can select a desk accessory, move the window, zoom the window, and close the window. The window supports a text edit record and some quickdraw graphics, both of which are updated whenever the window is uncovered. The purpose of this shell program was to provide a simple working Macintosh program, which could then be used to test specific code examples. So I’ve called it Code Tester! The routines to be tested are placed in the TestStuff Unit. I’ve coded two routines called ‘theTest’, which displays some text edit message, and ‘theDrawing’, which draws some quickdraw stuff in color (if you have a Mac II). You can use this code tester shell to quickly test out procedures that will become a part of a larger Mac program, without having to re-invent the event loop programming of windows, events, menus and so forth. If you are new to Mac programming, this will also give you a good overview of how a Mac program is constructed. The black and white output of code tester is shown in figure 1.

This program was first written in TML Pascal using TML’s syntax of segmentation. The version presented here is written in LS Pascal using units instead of segments. It should be easily ported to either Turbo Pascal or back to TML Pascal. The program globals are placed in one unit, while the main program and the test unit make up the other two units.

LS Pascal 1.11 and the Macintosh II

The latest version of TML Pascal that I have is 2.2 which I used on this program. For LS Pascal, the latest version is 1.11 which is officially a ‘beta’. Think is distributing version 1.11 as a patcher program plus libraries that will automatically update your version 1.0 LS Pascal into the 1.11 version. This version runs on the Mac II and supports the new Mac II libraries. However, there are still problems in using the LS shell environment to run, debug and edit your programs. Apparently, not all of the system parameters required for a color video board on a Mac II are being properly reset and if you have your video set to 256 colors, you may find yourself crashing a lot when editing and running under the LS shell. Think is still trying to get all the bugs out of this. In black and white mode, this version seems very reliable on the Mac II.

Fig. 1 Text Edit, & Color Quickdraw (on a Mac II!)

Mac programs written in Pascal tend to have a very small main program. Find the end of the program listing ‘CodeTester’, and you’ll see our main program has only four items: PrimeMemory, MainSetUp, MainEventLoop and Close.

Does Anyone Understand Memory Management?

The first procedure called is Prime Memory. This routine is called first to do some memory management for us. A typical thing is to allocate additional master pointers and set up a grow zone proc in case we run out of memory. It is also possible to do some heap management such as calling MaxApplZone to grow the heap to the application limit. However, this might not be considered ‘MultiFinder friendly’ when we start dividing the heap into seperate application zones. As MultiFinder becomes available, and Inside Macintosh Volume 5 gets ‘debugged’ from all it’s errors, hopefully a more clear picture of how memory management is properly done will emerge. While I have not placed a grow zone proc in our program, an example is given here. A program’s grow zone function is called by the Memory manager when it needs a larger continuous chunk of memory then it has available. As usual though there are a couple of pitfalls here. I constructed this straight from IM and hope that I am correct. Memory management seems to be the most misunderstood of all Mac subjects and more information in this area would be welcome at MacTutor.

FUNCTION MyGrowZone(cbNeeded : Size) : LongInt;
Var
 AHandle : Handle;
Begin
 If NOT GZCritical Then
    MyGrowZone := 0 {don’t respond, post failure }
   ELSE
    Begin
        AHandle := GZSaveHnd;  { handle in danger? }
        If AHandle = NIL Then   {dump something }
          Begin
            SetFontLock(FALSE);
 (* Anything else *)
 MyGrowZone :=1;  {we freed some}
 End {AHandle = NIL}
 ELSE
 MyGrowZone := 0; 
 End;  {First Else, AHandle :=}
End;  

Another heap management routine that could be called in our ‘PrimeMemory’ routine is one to set the application heap limit. Again, under MultiFinder, this probably would not be desirable since MultiFinder is allocating each application it’s own heap space based on the size resource in the resource file. Also, this command seems to choke LS Pascal’s shell environment, so I have left it out of the code.

SetApplLimit(POINTER(ORD4(GetApplLimit)-4096));

What we are trying to do here is to add about 4k to the initial 8K stack size at start-up.

Then (Last but not least) we call MoreMasters. For EACH MoreMasters call we obtain 1 Master Ptr. block with 64 master pointers for the use of the program. All of our handles we declare in the program will use one of these master pointers.

Initializing the Macintosh Managers

Going back to the Main program, next comes ‘MainSetUp’, which collects all the init type calls. In the routine ‘Energize’ is the standard Macintosh inits for quickdraw, menus, fonts and so forth. One thing that is always handy is to place a pointer to a crash routine in the call to InitDialogs(). This will direct the Mac to your crash proc when the user hits the resume button during a system bomb. This could prevent damage from a system reset. In our program, our crash proc just returns to the Finder. Take a look at how the cursor is set up, course you don’t have to do it like this if you don’t want to. Here again just a convenience. Note the type coercion in the HLock call. HLock expects a HANDLE, not a CURSHANDLE. Watch (no pun) the spelling of curshandle. CursorHandle is wrong, and it’s real easy to do. Also watch out for ICN# NOT ICON# it can be a really frustrating experience (I’ve done it twice now sigh).

The other set up troutines are for a window, text edit, rectangles and menus. In our program, we have only two menus so this is pretty straight forward. The SetUpLimits routine is used to set our rectangles. Note here that we set the rectangle for our window in relation to the screenbit.bounds global variable. This variable is managed by Quickdraw and by referencing it, our window will open up to a size that is appropriate to whatever monitor our program is running on. All window manager rectangles should be defined in relation to screenbits.bounds so that they will be independent of the display being used. In setting up text edit, we define the view area for text edit in relation to the window’s port rectangle, then call TENew. This will associate a text edit record with this window. Note that the current grafport for quickdraw must be set to the window before TENew is called. This is so Text Edit can access the quickdraw globals for the text size, font, style and mode. In our program, we call SetUpWindow first, then call SetUpTE second, so everything is done in the right order.

The Main Event

The main event loop is of course, the heart of all Macintosh programs. Our event loop calls system task, idles the text edit cursor and gets an event. Under MultiFinder, you might want to replace GetNextEvent with WaitNextEvent if your program does not use null events. This will allow more time for MultiFinder to give to other applications that might be running in background during null events. Our program will process a mouse event, a menu key event, an activate/deactivate event and an update event. In our case, the activate event is trivial. All we do is call TEActivate, which sets the caret at the insertion point so it will blink when TEIdle is called. However, since we don’t have any typing implement in our keydown event, this isn’t of much interest.

The Mighty Update Event

Update events are the soul of the Macintosh. Mac guidelines suggest that all drawing on the Mac be done during an update event. The way this is done for text as an example, is to set up the text edit record and then invalidate an area of the screen. When the update event is generated, our update routine calls TEUpdate, and the text is automatically displayed. This is what we do in our ‘theText’ procedure. We don’t actually draw any text in the window. We just stuff it into our text edit record and invalidate the port rectangle of our window, generating an update event. But what about graphics? To update the graphics portion of our screen, we call our drawing routine. This requires that all drawing calls be stored so that they can collectively be called any time an update event takes place, re-drawing the display. This is where the Mac can get tricky when your drawing calls are user generated! In our update routine, we erase the port rectangle and re-draw the graphics by calling ‘theDrawing’ procedure. Note that we really are not erasing the whole window, nor does the whole window get re-drawn! When we call BeginUpdate, the visiRgn of the window is temporarily restricted to the update region so only the update region actually gets erased and re-drawn. After calling EndUpDate, the visiRgn is restored and the update region is left empty. The window manager is doing a lot of work behind the scenes during an update event.

Mouse Down Event

When we have a mousedown event, our event loop calls DealwithMouseDowns and here we find where the mouse event took place by calling FindWindow, and then we use a case statement to deal with each area a mouse can be in. If it is a menu bar click, we call our menu bar routines. If it is a click in a desk accessory or a window not belonging to us, then we call SystemClick, which passes the event on to the desk accessory. For a click in the content region of our window, we call SelectWindow to bring it to the front if it isn’t already. For the drag bar or the goaway box in the window frame, we have toolbox calls that allow us to drag the window or hide the window. Note that we do not close the window, since one of our menu bar routines allows us to show the window and draw in it and that might be a big difficult if we closed the window and released the window record. In fact it would bomb! So HideWindow is sufficient. For a zoom box click, we erase the port rectangle of the window and call ZoomWindow, which generates an update event, so the window contents will be re-drawn. See how important it is that all window drawing be re-producable during an update event? ZoomWindow is a relatively new routine described in Inside Macintosh, volume 4.

Our menu bar is pretty simple since it only has an apple menu and a file menu. Thus desk accessories are not properly supported, since there is no edit menu for them! However, desk accessories can be called if they can be used with just a mouse click. We call GetItem to find the name of the desk accessory, and then pass that name to OpenDeskAcc, which runs the da. To protect ourselves from sloppy da’s, we save our current grafport while the da is running.

If we select our ‘about ’ item in the Apple menu, the about dialog box comes up. One neat thing about the about box (did I really say that?) is it doesn’t have an “OK” Button. It was implemented by enabling the static text in the “R” file. What this means is that the text will be counted as an “ItemHit”. Clicking anywhere in the dialog box will result in closing the about box. Please note however that if you DO use a button, the Stat Text should be “Disabled” so an item hit won’t be reported. Rmaker assumes(theres that word again) that things are “Enabled” unless you tell it otherwise. The static text rectangle is defined to fill the entire about box, use carriage returns “\0D” and be sure that you have not disabled the text. Since Rmaker will enable it by default, when the user clicks you get an itemhit and dump the about box.

How To Make (or steal) Your Own Icon’s

First of all your going to need these programs (Tools).

The Easiest way is to launch ResEdit, then open a “New” window. Call the window anything you like, but don’t use the programs name you got it from, then go to a program and “Open” it.....

OK now open the ICN# resource. “Copy” it, then:

Paste it into your “New” window.

Close the Program you opened.

“Get Info” on your icon and set the ID to what you need, usually 128 for an application or 129 for it’s document. Modify the icon with the pencil to make what you want.

Close and save it.

Quit.

Now launch

Open the icon and choose “Decompile” and be sure to save the file.

Quit.

All Right !! You did it!

You now have one file containing your icon, which can be “Paste" into any Resource file and one file with a “Hard copy” of the Icon which you can use in a Rmaker .R file. Thats how Code Tester’s was done, my particular favorite way of doing it.

Don’t forget to launch Edit first and then the rsrc. doc since the decompiled icon file is not of type EDIT.

That’s all folks, may the mouse be with you.
