To subscribers of the xforms list from Robert Nield <> :


I am in the process of writing a program where a piece of code appears
in a form, and to the left of it should be a window( maybe a canvas? )
where a pixmap or bitmap drawing of a cursor will point to relevent
lines of the code. It's position must be updated along with the
execution of the piece of code, so it is always pointing at the correct
line of code.
The problem is I dont know what type of form to use, should it be a
canvas? or another type as there is no direct interaction from the user
with it.

Bit of a broad question I know, but I'm stuck!
Any help offered would greatly be appreciated.
