14.6 Performing operations on the current interface
14.6.4 Loading the current interface into the environment Choose Interface > Evaluate to evaluate the definition for the current interface in the environment. Choose Interface > Compile to compile the definition for the current interface in the environment. Using either of these commands allows you to create instances of the interface, either from the listener or from other code loaded into the environment. This is therefore a useful way of testing out your GUI design with your application source code.
If you have loaded a compiled version of your application source code into the environment, you should use Interface > Compile to load the current interface. If you have evaluated your application source code in the environment, then load the current interface with Interface > Evaluate.
