Hi Stewart,

I would be VERY interested in taking advantage of your library
IF
it implemented tree widgets. Any thoughts on when the availability of a tree 
widget might happen?

There are two freeware apps I'd like to port to D, but the tree widget is a 
key part of their gui. Here are the respective screen shots:
http://berbible.sourceforge.net/images/BerBibleScreenShot.jpg
http://www.bibleinverse.org/Download/Psalms_119_11.jpg

(Note that these two screen shots don't specifically illustrate their use of 
tree widgets, but trees are central to their gui.)

I've done some preliminary attempts to build on the Win32 gui api within:
std.c.windows.windows
by using it as a guide/template for:
std.c.windows.windows_tree

That got far enough to look feasible with a LOT more work ... and a lot of 
reinventing the wheel. I was able to get several tree nodes defined and 
showing up, but got discouraged at the prospect of figuring out code to 
actually respond to mouse clicks. I've used "hold-your-nose" MFC a fair 
amount, but done very little native Win32 api gui coding.

In the meantime, I'm periodically monitoring progress on the various D gui 
projects and hope to use one or the other as they mature and stabilize.

Keep up the good work,
Lynn A.

I forget if the tree control is one I've looked into before. I'll read up and see if I can do it. If it turns out to be not too hard, I'll try and make it a 0.4 or 0.5 feature. Stewart. -- My e-mail is valid but not my primary mailbox. Please keep replies on the 'group where everyone may benefit.

[Dream-mode] The best would be a D port of wxWindows or some similar well-developed cross-platform GUI package. (Perhaps someone is already working on this?) The problem with wxWindows is that it's C++, so linking it can be problematic (put not impossible.) Nick

Best at what, exactly?
 (Perhaps someone is already working on this?)

Apparently so. http://www.wikiservice.at/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?wxD But don't ask me when/if information on the progress'll be around in English. Stewart. -- My e-mail is valid but not my primary mailbox. Please keep replies on the 'group where everyone may benefit.

I'm not going to rush into releasing 0.4 quite yet, but you'll be pleased to know that I've just started coding up the tree control. I hope to have a working prototype in the next few weeks.
