Hi DJ,

I think that rTree is a commerical product. Where did you see a reference to datatree?

Btw are you a member of the German forum already?

Kind regards,

Mark

Hi Informatie,

Data Tree and rTree are both commercial tree controls for LiveCode and licences for each can be bought through RunRev's marketplace (http://www.runrev.com/store/). More information about Data Tree can be found at http://theworcestersource.com/DATATREE.aspx.

I'm sure that our respective users will be able to come up with a list of pros and cons for each products but for me, I think that Data Tree focuses more on matching the host operating system whereas rTree focuses on being able to handle trees with many thousands of nodes (Data Tree limits the display to 1,200 nodes). Whilst both controls take slightly different approaches to coding and usage within projects, they are both very easy to work with.

Data Tree has recently been acquired by NativeSoft (http://www.nativesoft.net), the developers of NativeGeometry and NativeDoc and development of a more advanced version of the control is in progress.

Best wishes,


Steve

Thx for the response, reading this i think that data tree is the best solution of reading database parent child structure. The number of nodes is not my concern.

Fexiblity i think I'LL fins in data tree.

Thx
