Discovering the DB tree navigator

June 21st, 2008

Just a quick (more than 9 minutes anyway) overview of the P4A_DB_Navigator, the P4A widget that allows coders to build tree structures from a database table, with some cool features like dragging & dropping subtrees.

    I like db navigator and I think that it will be a good way for display and editing the app menus but I have a little problem about this: How can I customize de display order of all the child nodes for a parent node ? As tree is not important but for displaying menus I think it must be…

    I have a tree structure for my menus and an “order” fields but I’m not very happy with this solution. Do you have any other solution ?

    @blas: the addOrder() on the db_source will work for the db tree, let me know

    Really nice job Fabrizio.

    I wanted to know if you could do a tutorial on the maner to get a different frame on the right when clicking on a tree item function of his type. We have often applications with treeviews and different type of elements in it, so we could have element of two different type for example tables and indexes (indexes are child of a table of course) and if i click on a table, it will show me the properties of the table on the right side of the window, and if i click on the index of course, it will show me the columns indexed in with a different form…
    I hope im clear, thanx for your response.
