Default Alice 3 For Starters - 02-07-2011, 04:36 PM

Hello Alice Community! As many of you know, I am an Alice 2.2 kind of guy, but I am going to try the latest beta addition of Alice 3. Before I begin, I would like to ask a general question about Alice 3. The question is what do I need to know? Anything that you may think is helpful to me is welcome in this thread, including links to threads that go into a topic in more detail. Below is a list of things that I currently have questions about regarding Alice 3. Please note that these are things that I would like help on, but even if you have something to offer that is not on the list, please do so as it may be a question added later on.

David B.'s Unanswered questions about Alice 3.

What are classes?
Is a respecting scope actually something in Alice 3, or is it just something Dennis said at this thread?


David B.'s answered questions about Alice 3.

Where exactly are the methods located?

Please help me. I am new to Alice 3 Beta, and I want to start getting ready now so that way when Alice 3 comes out, I will be able to dive right in, and won't need to do then what I want to do now.

Anyone? I understand that Alice 3 is still in beta, and that Alice 2.2/Alice 2.0 has more users, but couldn't those that have already made the switch help me out?

Perhaps you should try it again. I also downloaded it, and then got rid of it, but since then, the beta version has improved, and I think I should learn it so I can get ready for "the event." (I am speaking of the final release of Alice 3.)

Boy you have waited long.
The "Methods" are organized a bit differently in 3.
-If you're referring to the "Create New Method" button
In Alice 2.2, it is partially neatly organized under a methods tab in an object/element's Methods tab. In Alice 3, you have to left click the "Class:" dropdown box, mouse over an object or element, and click Declare Procedure to create a new 'Method.' A new tab for the 'Method' will be created and located at the very top of the "Procedures" tab for the object. You can either right click and edit the method with the Procedures tab or the "Class:" dropdown box. This version of the Methods is used exactly the same, if not slightly differently because of beta limits, as in 2.2
-If you're referring to the actual actions listed in what was previously the Methods tab, they have been renamed to Procedures and shifted to the left. Some of the options from 2.2 have been moved to different places to better fit it's categories.
It took not longer than 10 minutes to figure that out.
The answer to the "respecting scope" question is probably mostly one out of opinion. I believe it simply refers to the way the models are organized and read, and because of the way it's organized you would find it difficult to translate between the two.

What is this class of which you speak.

P.S. I have not made any kind of switch.

That was confusing! Can anybody explain what all that meant?
