Data Tree - a platform compliant tree view for RunRev

Hi all, It's with great pleasure that I'm announcing my first commercial library for RunRev: Data Tree 1.0. After being a bit frustrated with the lack of a native tree view control in Rev, I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring and write one. Given the potential complexities of such a control, my ...

Hi Sturgis, I wonder whether these suggestions might speed this up a little? I notice that you're fetching the contents of a field called "monthlyAdd" in each loop, which will take a little bit of time. You could try putting this into a variable. Modifying the contents of the field called "outField"...

Hi, On the downloads page of my website, www.theworcestersource.com , I've placed a stack called texturedbutton.rev . It contains a simple example of one way to create a custom object. However, with version 4.0 it's very likely that we could use graphic objects and effectcs rather than bitmaps to pu...

Hi John, It's odd how nobody's written a reply to this one yet! Whilst I can't be sure that I fully understand creation and inheritance as xTalk languages are all I know, I'll take a stab that this is do with creating similar objects that look and behave in the same way. If this is so, Rev puts a nu...

Hi all, I've been working on a commercial grade treeview on and off for the last couple of months now. The key features that are applicable to this thread is that it renders with native appearance on the Mac and Windows and it can paint up to 1,200 nodes almost instantly. You can actually have count...

Hi all,

I've been steadily releasing betas of my tree over the last few months and have reached a bit of a milestone: the tree now caters for Mac and Windows native appearances.

Would appreciate any feedback, bugs etc.

Thanks,


Steve

Don't any libraries that are added when you build your standalone persist as invisible groups on your card? If they are inserted in this fashion, this might account as to why the numbering of your fields changes so dramatically.

Best to stick with Jan's advice here.

Hi ale870,

I wrote an article on my site a few months back (later published in the Rev newsletter). It might help you with what you're trying to do.

www.theworcestersource.com

There's also a demonstration stack there too.

All the best,

Hi Chris and Garrett, Yes, you're right in that there are no scripts in the "Get the Control.rev" file. All of the scripts are in the "Data Tree Library.rev" file. Without putting it into use, the control will just sit there and be unable to do anything. Here are some ideas on solving the issue (sor...

Hi Garrett, I think that you've just hit on something that's missing in the docs - you need to put the stack into use! This will happen if you open the documentation stack but not if you've just created a tree in your own stack. You can tell if the stack is in use or not if the nodes activate when y...
