[Laszlo-dev] adding something to LFC vs <include>'ed library

Dear Ann Landers,
looking at trying to implement what Tucker proposed with adding
<contextmenu> and <contextmenuitem> tags for
the right click menu API.
entry for the lzx interface manually, but when I started doing that I said
to myself "this feels like a bad idea, maybe we shouldn't be extending the
schema manually anymore, is there a better way to implement this feature?".
There's also the question of class names -- I would like to name these
LzContextMenu and LzContentMenuItem. The names
"contextmenu" and "contextmenuitem" are dangerously close to the Flash class
names of "ContextMenu" and "ContextMenuItem",differing only by
capitalization. (and would in fact collide if you try to compile for swf6,
but for the fact that these classes were not builtin in swf6).
I'd like this to be part of the LFC, but I'd like to
write the code in lzx, so I don't have to write the schema entry for it by
hand. However, we currently don't have
any code in the LFC (ORL?) which is written in lzx, so I don't really know
how to proceed with this. I could modify the
compiler so that this lzx file is <include>'ed in every file, or maybe this
should be an optional library API that needs to be
I suppose I could name the classes LzContextMenu and LzContextMenuItem, and
you would refer to them
by those tag names, but that would be inconsistent with the
way we've been naming lzx classes in component libraries. Or I could add an
entry to the magic name translation table in LaszloInitiator's
ConstructorMap to map "contextmenu => LzContextMenu"
