To those who are interested in trying out the nice ListBox replacement for hierarchical listboxes, be advised that the ListBox OutlineView (Hierarchical).rbp in the 17.1’s Examples folder is incomplete. A finished version that also supports row dragging and sorting can be downloaded here:


BTW, I may frequently update the aforementioned project file. You can retrieve updates by re-downloading from that link. Check regularly if you run into problems :slight_smile:

I also now try to maintain a “Version History” Note in the ListBoxTV class.

BTW, I’ve added another possibly useful demo to the 17.1 Examples:

FSEventsMBS Demo.rbp

It contains the class FolderMonitor. That class enables you to subscribe only to single folders and their changes. It smartly manages the FSEvents in such a way that it only requests events delivered for the deepest common folder (in case you want to watch more than one), and forwards events to your code only for the specific folders.

It’s used by the Disk Browser.rbp sample project, which implements a Finder-like directory browser, along with file drag & drop, file renaming and automatic refreshing changed folders that are shown.
