problem with :active slots

Hi,

I need to be able to set the fraction slot on a <Paned> composite.
But setting this slot doesn't update the widget - you need to call
place-grip to do that. As the new module system hides this method
I thought I'd try and get it going using an active slot. So I
modified Paned.stklos:


> (fraction :init-keyword :fraction)

< (fraction :init-keyword :fraction
< :allocation :active
< :after-slot-set! (lambda(o v) (place-grip o)))

which is similar to how the new <gauge> widget is set up. It doesn't
work for me however:

*** Error at line 97 of file
/home2/andrew/lib/stk/3.99.2/STk/Paned.stklos:
Allocation ":active" is unknown


What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
