The XTC (extended and typed controls) library might be useful here.
Some documentation is available at the Dazzle website:
If different information types should have different editing
interactions, one option is to add a new method to the InfoKind class,
indicating the appropriate interaction style.
e.g. (based on the XTC styles)
class InfoKind a where
interactStyle :: a -> InteractStyle
Incidentally, the version of XTC.hs currently distributed in Blobs
is older than the one on the Dazzle webpage, so it would be worth
updating that first.
