[ANN] SSG ListBox 1.0d1
Date: 07.08.13 04:20 (Tue, 6 Aug 2013 20:20:07 -0700)
From: Brad Hutchings
Last week, there was some conversation on the forums about open source ListBox, etc. I experimented with the idea this weekend, and have decided to create a 100% Xojo (except for image resizing) ListBox implementation. Except, it will be better than the built-in. This SSG_ListBox will be part of the Studio Stable Graphics (SSG) product, and I will be releasing builds as I add major features. The first build is available tonight. Full source code is included. My customers have found this useful for debugging when things go badly and for learning how to build seemingly complicated things. The license allows you to use and modify the source for your projects, but not to share or sublicense the source code.

A video of the initial feature set is available on Youtube (watch full screen):

My approach is to keep things familiar to users of Xojo's built-in ListBox while extending or modifying things where it makes SSG_ListBox better. This release starts by getting these things right:

• Cells, rows, columns, heading, scrolling.
• Flexible backgrounds, including tiled graphics.
• Row and column dividers.
• Column and cell alignment.
• Row, column, and cell tags.
• Control border, with thickness and edge color settings.

I'll add a really nice selection model, drag and drop, and hierarchical lists in the near future. I know that sometimes, getting the current ListBox to do the gymnastics we need can be awkward and difficult. So if your ideal ListBox has some particular requirements, you might want to purchase a license to SSG and bend my ear a little. SSG already has some cool graphics routines in the plugin and three useful canvas classes with full Xojo source. SSG_ListBox will be part of this product going forward. More on SSG here:

SSG is $69.95, and you get updates for the life of the product. You really want to jump on this now if you're not already a licensee. Got questions? Ask them here.

Chay,

Life of the product. Just fixed that on the web page. Sorry for the confusion.

Brad,

Can you clarify the update policy for me? Unless the life of the product is one year, then these two sentences from the website seem to be contradictory:

"Your paid license entitles you to free updates for a year from the date of purchase."
-vs-
"SSG Plugin License costs (US) $69.95, with free updates for the life of the product."

Thanks.
