Class Definition Pane

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Class Definition Pane displays the Smalltalk definition of the current class selected in the browser.

The definition is in fact just the Smalltalk message:

       #subclass:
       instanceVariableNames:
       classVariableNames:
       poolDictionaries:
       classInstanceVariableNames:

being sent to the superclass object. If you make changes here you can commit them by choosing Workspace/Accept or Ctrl+S.

Note that although the definitions pane is normally just used for browsing and changing class definitions, it is at the same time a workspace and the various workspace operations can also be used here.
