It seems if you create an Fl_File_Chooser, the 'window' is not end()ed, causing all subsequent widgets created afterwards to be inserted into the Fl_File_Chooser.


int main() {
    Fl_Window *win = new Fl_Window(140, 100);              // A
    Fl_File_Chooser *cho = new Fl_File_Chooser(..)         // B
    Fl_Button *but = new Fl_Button(10,10,120,25,"Browse"); // C
    but->callback(Browse_CB, (void*)cho);                  // D

The button created in line C gets added to the filechooser, not to the 'win'. Since cho has no end() method available, one cannot prevent this.

My feeling is the chooser should end() its own window in the ctor, and if folks want to add widgets to it, they can use explicit calls to begin() and end().

Either that, or leave the end() out of the ctor, but still make begin() and end() method calls available, so the chooser doesn't suck in all widget creations that follow.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

Please verify the fix.
