Dear Doug and Brian:

First of all, thank you so much for the quick responses...

Ok, I understand that making an option disappear is a bad idea!  I will not even try to hide it then.  I am using set_available() functionality already...

Do you have anything working yet for the NarrativeWeb break- up?

All that I am working on in NarrativeWeb is the Place Maps that Jerome Rapinet and I are working on...

Sincerely yours,
Rob G. Healey

See the "set_available()" member function of the Option base class. All options implement the Option base class. And if you set "available" to "False", the GUI menu options should gray the option on the UI.

You should never cause an option to disappear - it is bad UI design practice.


Sincerely yours,
