A presentation is an association between
Or more specifically, when output is done as a presentation, CLIM creates an output record associated with an object and a presentation type, and saves that record in the window's output history.
To associate an object and it's type with visual output, use one of the following to display the object:
type &key single-box allow-sensitive-inferiors modifier parent
record-type) &body body
object &optionaly presentation-type
&key (stream *standard-output*) view modifier acceptably
for-context-type single-box allow-sensitive-inferiors sensitive
query-identifier prompt record-type
presentation-type &key view acceptably for-context-type string
When CLIM knows the type of a displayed object, it also knows which commands are appropriate for that object.
