14.1 Creating or loading interfaces

14.1.2 Loading existing interfaces

Choose File > Open to load an existing interface into the interface builder. You can load any CAPI interface, whether it is one that you have designed using the interface builder, or one that has been coded by hand using the CAPI library. You can load as many interfaces as you want, and then use the History menu to swap between the loaded interfaces when working on them.

To load one or more existing interfaces:

1. Choose File > Open.

A file prompter dialog appears.

2. Using the file prompter, choose a file of Common Lisp source code.

You should choose a file which contains the source code for at least one CAPI interface. If the file does not contain any such definitions, an error message appears informing you of this.

Once you have chosen a file, a dialog appears which lists all the interface definitions which have been found in the file, as shown in Figure 14.2. This lets you choose which interface definitions are loaded into the interface builder. By default, all the definitions are selected.

3. Select the interfaces you want to load into the interface builder and click OK.

You can select as many or as few of the listed interfaces as you like; the All or None buttons can help to speed your selection. Click Cancel to cancel loading the interfaces altogether.
