Mac Finder control for VB.NET


M

MG

Hello All,
I have a requirement for a new application development where I must
present some information to the user for selection via drag and drop.
VB offers the TreeView control which would work nice, however the user
does not like the Treeview control's presentation. The user wants a
control that work similar to the Mac's Finder control while in column
view.

Does anyone know of a control for VB.NET that work similar to the
Mac's Finder control?

Thanks
Mike

Hello??? Anyone have an answer? Perhaps a little further explanation?
Apple's Mac Finder Control works similar to window's treeview. Finder
has a nifty view capability that my users would like in some new
development that is being done. The finder supports a "column" view.
Similar to the treeview, it starts out in a root list. The difference
being, when a user makes a selection and clicks on a node, the node
doesn't expand, the sub nodes appear on the pane to the right of the
list. Clicking on a sub node, will cause the pane to split again and
the items within that sub node appear to the right again. This will
happen again and again with the left pane getting narrower as the user
drives deeper into the sub nodes.

That is what I am trying to replicate. Obviously, once the user
reaches the base list of items, we have to support drag and drop
capability.

If there is anyone who know of a control that will do this, I would be
much oblige.

Thanks
Mike

There are many alternatives available from 3rd party vendors. The
prices range from free to the obscene. <g>

I'm not familiar with any that does exactly what you are looking for,
but mostly are highly customizable (is that a word?) so I would be
very surprised if you couldn't find something that would meet your
requirements.

But the real reason I replied is to suggest you will likely have
better luck posting your question elsewhere. Microsoft no longer
supports newsgroups. Subsequently few .Net users visit these groups
any more. To be seen by a wider audience you need to post in Microsoft
