Windows explorer type split pane
Posted on 2004-08-24
I am unsure how I will implement the following but I will try phrase the question as best I can, and perhaps someone can point me in the right direction?
I want a split pane - left component is a Windows explorer type tree of directories only, the right component is a JTable of the files (exclude sub-directories) in the currently selected node.
*the directory tree starts at a specified root location and the user cannot go up a level
*the right pane lists files in a table - associated attributes (from a hardcoded attribute list) can be added / removed as columns in the table -> these attributes
are XML based and are retrieved from the individual files
Any ideas?? - I want it all to be reuseable,
*the directory tree specifies a root
*the file table specifies its attributes
I just want help with:
* what classes should I have and extend?
* any pointers with how to handle the XML idea because I know nothing!!
