About the NewtApp Framework
The Entry View Protos
The entry view is the focal point for operations that happen on one soup entry
frame at a time. These include functions such as displaying and updating data
stored in the entry's slots.
The NewtApp framework has three entry view protos:
protos are used within a NewtApp application, while
protos allows you to use
the framework's slot views in an application that is not based on the NewtApp
The entry view also contains the user interface components that perform operations
on one entry at a time. These components include the header bars, which are used
as divider bars to separate multiple entries displayed simultaneously. This behavior
happens in the Notes application. An example of the Notes application with multiple
entries and header bars is shown in Figure 4-4.
