Arguments: window

This function is used by the File | New menu-item of the default menu-bar that may be interactively attached to a form. In the IDE, it demonstrates a typical "New" command for creating a text editor but this function is not available in a runtime image. A custom application that implements a "New" command will need to supply its own code for such a command instead, but it may be useful to model after the default menu-bar's example. Here is the code for the new-text-editor example (note: this code changed, adding values for the width and height arguments, between release 6.2 and release 7.0):

(in-package :cg)
(defmethod new-text-editor ((window basic-pane))
  ;; Called by the default "New" menu-item added to a form.
  (make-window (gensym-sequential-name :editor)
    :device 'text-edit-window
    :parent window
    :width (floor (interior-width window) 1.2)
    :height (floor (interior-height window) 1.2)))
