When I run an app on my BUG, I can get the application to stop running by breaking out of the main application loop, but the window on the BUGview module stays open. So far, the apps that I download from BUGnet do the same thing. An X is at the upper right corner for each app, but it doesn’t seem to actually do anything for my apps or the ones I’ve downloaded. I am expecting it to just go back to what I assume is Linux, with the applications, utilities, games, etc. menus.
So how do I “fully” close down the window on the BUGview? As it is I have just been using ssh to stop concierge, delete the app and the java storage folder, and restart concierge.
Yes, it’s the responsibility of the application to clean up window when it shuts down. It’s common for the app writer to forget to do this, in fact when looking for the appropriate code in one of my apps I found that I also forgot to do this. The appropriate AWT API for this that I’ve used goes like this:
It’s worth saying that in R1.4.1, a new GUI for BUGapps will be available that will allow you to completely shutdown any BUGapp running via BUGview.
hope that helps
