Navigation Services support for REALbasic
Navigation Services support extended to Customization: Version History Navigation Services for MacOS 8, 9 and X. Version 3.0, September 14, 2002 --added a new class: NavCustomization that allows the client to customize a NavDialog Window. To allow this, NavReply was extended with an additional call: IsFolder. NavCustomization depends on usage of a DITL resource, and for this a new plugin was designed: ResourceEdit Plugin. See the documentation for this plugin, to obtain the details. NavDialog Plugin: Yes a bunch of classes have been implemented to support the Navigation Services, but they all make sense. Let's go over them one by one starting with probably the most important one. Don't make the mistake that one does the actual saving or opening of a folderItem. This plugin supports the Navigation DialogWindows and their manipulations. These manipulations are the key to set the NavServices to your own needs. And that's what it's all about. But why this plugin when REALbasic currently...

ResourceEdit, a novel plugin for REALbasic
ResourceEdit, a novel plugin for REALbasic. This plugin has been put to life for a couple of reasons. The first reason was to provide tools you can use to meaningfully implement a new class that comes with NavDialog Plugin. This new class is called NavCustomization, which allows you to add a DITL resource to a NavDialog window. Navigation Services allows you to do this, and because Navigation belongs to the Human Interface Experience, it was almost imperative to implement. In order to give the REALbasic programmer the necessary tools, a new plugin had to be created, which does several things. 1) Allows you to use existing REALbasic controls for prototyping DITL and DLOG resources. 2) Write resources out into a resourcefork. 3) Provide classes you use to bring life into these resources. 4) Make it compatible with the NavDialog Plugin. A spin-off of this plugin is possibly the provision of tools you could exploit to copy ResEdit and bring it on the MacOSX market. It seems also be...
