RE: Snapshot build for 0.6.9 now available

What do you want to display ?

Just the plus and minus. It seems that it works without a pixmap after all...i think I messed up by trying to alter your example rather than starting from scratch.

What do you want it for ?

right now, just for giggles, but it will probably turn out to be a better solution for the murgaLua demos main interface than the existing collapsible browser method. It definitely uses much less code to accomplish, and the result is at least as good. It's not really a true file hierarchy, though, so it may not be necessary to drill down through nested directories. I do think it will be a useful function, though. For example, I once created a shell script that would build Fluxbox menu items for all configuration files within a directory hierarchy. Rather than open a file manager, browse for a file, and click to open, I'd open the menu and mouse down to the desired file. It didn't save a lot of time, but was sometimes more convenient. I no longer use Fluxbox, but the ability to dynamically create quick access to specific files or types of files is still with me.

So far i have not succeeded in the hierarchy, but I should probably become more familiar with the way the tree itself works before adding this extra complication to the process anyway. I did notice that a scroll seems to be required in order to select the proper line? Not sure, but it kept selecting the line above the one I clicked until the tree was added to a scroll.

EDIT: The concept of a hierarchical table is potentially very useful, but I have to admit that it always gives me trouble. I have succeeded in making tables that are two levels deep, but I always have to go back to the docs to figure out how to create and access them. I'm not sure why it's so difficult for me =op
