One thing that the BCSequenceView will also need (or actually maybe
its controller) is a method that checks whether what the user types
is part of the symbolset of the sequence. If the controller does
that, it's probably needed in a delegate method, such as
- (BOOL)textView:(NSTextView *)aTextView
And also a way to change every typed letter to uppercase/lowercase
Alex, I will look into the bug - that is indeed very weird, and
difficult to debug :( However, the fact that it only is for the
first 10 characters, which is hardecoded in the default value of 90
for the columnwidth, could give a clue.
