How to Write a Spreadsheet in LS C

Dear Cary Mariash

In the January ’88 issue of MacTutor, a letter sent by Cary Mariash requested information on Macintosh tools to create spreadsheet type windows. MacTutorCalc is an example of a simple (very simple!) spreadsheet type application, that uses the List Manager ( IM - IV ) to create it’s windows. (Note: MacTutorCalc is written in Think C 3.0, see the project window in figure 1 )

Figure 1. Lightspeed C Project Window

List Manager in action!

The call to Lnew is used to create the list (figure 2). The dataBounds parameter is set to have an extra row and column than our work area. This, of course, is to support the row and column headers. After the list has been created the programmer has several more options, involving selection, and installing a routine in the lClikLoop field to be called repeatedly while LClick has control. The selFlags field of the list handle allow complete customization of the selection algorithm used by the list manager. MacTutorCalc is content to use the default selection, but when we call LClick to handle our mouseDown events in the window, any scrolling causes the spreadsheet to scroll, without the grid being updated. To fix this, MacTutorCalc installs a lClickLoop routine to update the grid continuously during calls to LClick. This works great, except the List Manager does not call this routine when the mouse button is pressed in the scroll bars, so that the grid is updated then only after the mouse button is released. Although it is not implemented here, this could be fixed by installing a pointer to our grid routine in the system global DragHook ( $9F6 ) which is called by DragGrayRgn. Since the control manager routine TrackControl calls DragGrayRgn to drag the outline of the scroll bars thumb button, this would achieve the desired effect.

Figure 2. Spreadsheet & Dialog Entry

There are other points to take into account when using a window such as this. For example, when the user resizes the window, it would not be desirable to allow the user to size the window out of alignment with the cell boundries simply because it looks bad. To handle this, after the call to GrowWindow, we make sure that the new size is a multiple of the cell size. Updating is handled almost completely by the list manager routine LUpdate, although we still have to draw the grid, and the grow icon.

Data entry is probably where MacTutorCalc could be improved the most. Currently data entry is implemented by double-clicking on the desired cell ( LClick returns TRUE when a cell was double-clicked and a call to LLastClick is used to get the cell’s address). This brings up a dialog prompting for the data. In an application intended for serious use, this would get extremely tiring. This could be fixed by adding a data entry window at the top of the screen ( Excel Style ) and allowing the user to enter data into the currently selected cell through this window. At this point we have data that needs to processed, so we determine the type of data ( formula, or string ) and then set our calculation flag. The routine DoCalc is called in response to this, and processes the whole spreadsheet, calling the parser for formula, and ignoring strings. After the data has been parsed, LSetCell is used to put the data into the list. Alternatively, if the cell has been blanked out, then LClrCell is used to clear the data.

About MacTutorCalc

MacTutorCalc is a simple spreadsheet written for the purpose of demonstrating use of the list manager. The work area for our application is set to 8 columns by 8 rows. It is capable of accepting both strings and formulae, and constants. Data is entered into a cell by double-clicking on it. I know that this is awkward, but other methods would have unnecessarily complicated this example. Any data entered into a cell that starts with “=” is considered a formula and will be parsed, and any number will be treated as a constant, everything else is considered a string. A formula can be any simple algebraic expression, using floating or absolute cell addresses. There a few simple functions in MacTutorCalc that use the Math library distributed with Think C. In the future, we could expand our spreadsheet to include:

• ability to save and retrieve spreadsheets

• a full function library

• cell formatting and spreadsheet editing features

• memory paging system to support larger spreadsheet sizes

• support for SYLK format

[There is a known bug in the text to binary conversion routines. Apple's conversion routines were used, and so large formatted numbers will not be converted to text correctly. Note also that Apple frowns on trying to use the List Manager to write the next Excel Product, so if you get serious about this project, re-write it without using the List Manager. -Ed]
