Arguments: object-editor

Returns a list of the standard command buttons that are included on object-editor, which must be an object-editor. The value may be set at creation time with the command-buttons initarg, or any time later by calling (setf command-buttons).

The value should be a list containing any subset of the keyword symbols in the left column below. The list of all choices is the value the constant *object-editor-command-buttons*, which is the default value of this property. Each button calls an exported generic function, which is shown to the right of the button name here. An application could add custom widgets that call these functions rather than using the built-in buttons. An application could also add wrapper methods to the generic functions to intercept all usage of the command buttons (or other calls to the functions). See the doc pages for the functions for more information on the behavior of these buttons.

Button Name

Generic Function Called


:first-button display-special-instance (passing :first)
:previous-button display-special-instance (passing :previous)
:next-button display-special-instance (passing :next)
:last-button display-special-instance (passing :last)
:select-button object-editor-select  
:search-button object-editor-search  
:save-button object-editor-save  
:revert-button object-editor-revert  
:new-button object-editor-new  
:delete-button object-editor-delete  
:commit-button cg-commit  
:rollback-button cg-rollback  

The order of the buttons in this property value does not make a difference because the buttons that are included are automatically layed out in certain standard positions. When creating an object-editor interactively as a form window in a project, you could move the buttons to wherever you like after the automatic layout is done.

:save-button is a default-button, and so pressing the Enter key in an object-editor will call object-editor-save (unless the keyboard focus is on some other button widget, which makes that button be the acting default button). :revert-button is a cancel-button, and so pressing the Escape key anywhere in an object-editor will call object-editor-revert.

:commit-button and :rollback-button ordinarily should not be used on an object-editor whose edited-class is not a persistent class.
