[REBOL] Re: Looking for help

From: g:santilli:tiscalinet:it at: 5-Mar-2002 11:35

Hi Jim, On Monday, March 04, 2002, 7:37:05 PM, you wrote: JR> Any help would be appreciated.

The find JR> function itself works great but I can't figure out how to display the found records. I'll take the opportunity to make an announcement. :) I don't know if I will be able to finish and release it in the way I'd like to, but I'm developing a sort of IDE for "data base" applications. It is currently done 50%, but it can already save 80% of your work when developing form-based applications. Currently it is able to automatically layout forms and data browser; I think I'll be able to slap in a QBE module too (I have it working but it is not modularized yet and cannot be fit into the whole thing). It is completely asynchronous and you can open multiple views on a table/result set and have them updated almost automagically. But the most interesting thing is that you don't have to mess with the List style as that is handled by the "wizard" (it uses a multi-columnar multi-selection list with both vertical and horizontal scrollers). I think I can give a release date for about June. (This is because I have a lot of things going on and the advancement of this project depends 90% on them.) Why am I making this announcement? First, because every now and then there's people asking "what's people doing?". :) Second, because I have a question for you REBOLs. What kind of license should I release it on? * Commercial only. (Personal, non-profit use could be free of charge - so that people can evaluate it and learn how to use it before doing real work.) * GPL. You'll have to release your work with the GPL too, or you'll need to get a commercial license from me. (Please don't ask for alphas/betas now, I don't want to release it unfinished, and there are too much things to decide yet.)
