[REBOL] Re: Dynamic Data Table Layouts/Lists

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 16-Mar-2002 11:11

Hi James, << What I am interested in finding out is are there any others who are working in the area of editable tables? Here I am thinking of basic spreadsheet / cell editing functionality as well as display. Can the list object be mangled in this way? >> Sunanda has developed some grid/tree code, and Ryan recently posted some as well. I'm heading down a slightly different path, which is to render the data with DRAW commands and then create just one, or a few, live faces for editing when necessary. For a small number of items, dynamic layouts should work fine. The issue with them will be scalability. For really large numbers of faces, you'll have to do some kind of creation/destruction as things move around, or just impose upper limits on things, which is also a viable alternative. << Another query is does anyone who has used IOS know if there is better spreadsheet style handling available than the basic list object from >> Not that I know of. Though Allen is working on some style ideas as well, I think. --Gregg
