It would be really great if it were possible to set the row height in the listbox for each row individually.
Have you searched in Feedback to see if this is already a feature request?
@Beatrix_Willius has a Listbox that does that.
DataView does it too.
So I don’t think Xojo will spend their scarce resources on a complete rewrite of the Listbox …
They can only be a multiple of the row height set for the listbox. And the code is API 1 . While it still works fine, it was coded against the features the Xojo Listbox had 10 years ago and the API I designed for the merging and some other features i added tried to stay consistent with that.
Xojo has since added some of the featured I added (as well as additional ones), but for the ones doing the same things, not with same API I created for them.
BTW coding that was real a slog! I did it while I was between jobs and had a lot of time on my hands.
Oops - sorry, was Karen, not Beatrix.
So I guess your best bet is DataView https://www.pidog.com/wp/dataview/
Right now I have no plans to update it… but is still works fine and shoud as long as API 1 is supported so it is still available.
But with any code based on Xojo listbox, there is no way to have a FREELY variable row height AFAIK.
It has to be a multiple of the one the listbox is using… and that works well for many things as the row height is typically based on the text line height.
Thanks a lot. DataView seems to be exactly for my needs.
Test it thoroughly first though. It works fine on the Mac (the documentation though is atrocious) but on Windows it is more … temperamental from what I read …
Yes on windows its sluggish
It is a pity, I would need it for Windows mainly. (On the Mac I have already applications written in Objective-C.)
