Subject: [Caml-list] Passing self to a new object
Hi all
	I'm writing a gui program where the callback for a button
creates a new object (also a gui) and needs to pass it a reference to
itself in order that the new object can contact the original for
information. The classes look something like this;

class xyz = 
	let top = ... in
	let ... = ... in
	let btnNew  = ... ~command:(fun () = new abc self) top in
	object (self)
	...
	...
	end

class abc (parent:xyz) =
	object (self)
	var myparent = parent
	...
	end

	My error is;

This expression has type
  < btnDelete : 'a; btnEdit : 'b; btnExit : 'c; btnFind : 'd;
    btnNew : Widget.button Widget.widget; get_config : 'e -> 'f;
    list_record_directory : 'g; new_filename : 'h; read_configuration :
'i;
    self : 'j; set_config : 'k -> 'l -> 'm; topLevel : 'n; .. >
but is here used with type 'j
Self type cannot escape its class

	And I have no clue what I am doing wrong :)

		All suggestions appreciated

			Andrew
