Hi all,
Just read manual again from the latest r1514 release. Very nice.
On page http://shoes.heroku.com/manual/Classes.html . There
is Shoes::Widget, what exactly is this, any idea guys?

btw 2 tiny problems on the manual page: (we might can improve it)
1. scrolling very slow (at least in windows 7)
2. page up/ page down / arrow up and down don't work.

It allows you to create custom widget classes composed from other widgets,
but it's not really all that stable right now.

Try a different browser?

I have no idea, but a different browser might help.

Sorry the 2 problem is from the manual of the shoes release! not from the
webpage, sorry for not clearly specifying.

"Read the Manual" from the shoes.exe

Hi Yiling,

> There is Shoes::Widget, what exactly is this
Good eyes! :)
As devyn said, this is a custom widget class.
Look at this tiny note:

Umm,... really? I'm using Shoes 3 on Windows 7. But not feel slow...
Anyone using Windows 7?

These are browser/OS specific issues.
