TableLayout listCentering demo (Squeak 3.2 and later)
Last updated at 8:39 am UTC on 10 August 2020

How was it constructed

Create a large Morph

 Morph new color: Color blue; openInHand

 ((PluggableTextMorph on: TextMorph new text: #text accept: #text:) extent: 300@400) openInHand.

The result file for download:

The code

| slideExtent slideColor1 xLeft xRight yContent createSlideBlk slide container btn1 btn2 btnPanel 
slideExtent := 420 @ 320.
slideColor1 := Color white.
"fontName := 'BitstreamVeraSans'."
"titleFontPointSize := 24."
xLeft := 20.
xRight := 140.
yContent := 80.

"createSlideBlocka block is like a function definition assigned to an instance variable. 
The block created here takes two parameters

To activate the block send the message #value:value to it. 

For example     
createSlideBlk value: Color yellow value: 'Presentations made easy'.

This will actually execute the code and thus build a slide morph which is a RectangleMorphwith a property #isSlide set to true.

The result of the block is the  object returned by the last statement.
In this case 'slide'."

TODO: Replace RectangleMorph with Morph. A RectangleMorph is actually not necessary here. Then the script also works in Pharo 3.0 and 6.1
