ChooserPalette(TM) is a selection list manager. It provides a
simple way to display lists and allow users to make selections from them. With
it, most list handling tasks can be accomplisthed from Interface Builder.
By removing list management tasks from the application logic, you
can dramatically reduce development time.
Choosers provide an easy way to display lists and allow users to make
selections from that list. The OTChooser object is a control that displays its
selection list as a reorderable matrix of OTChooserCells in a scrollable region
with an optional title. Clicks in the selection matrix cause the cell where
the click occurred to be selected. Users of NeXT applications have seen
examples of this kind of control in applications like Mail and Digital
Librarian. The OTChooserCell matrix can be configured for single or
multiple cell selection. The OTChooser also provides support for dragging
icons out of the selection list.
The OTChooser is a control, implementing the target/action paradigm in response
to user or programmatic input. The OTChooser implements the standard list
functions including ªnextº and ªpreviousº for moving
through the cells, and ªdeleteº for removing entries.
What others say about ChooserPalette
ChooserPalette was reviewed in the March 1992 issue of NeXTWatch. The
following is an excerpt of that review:
Detailed documentation is included with the software.
This object [ChooserPalette] is well-thought-out and very useful. Almost
any application requires the user to have to select a choice from a list of
options. ChooserPalette offers a simple way of doing that.... ChooserPalette
is highly recommended for companies that do a lot of in-house production and
need to roll applications out the door as fast as they can. Like all of the
other palettes from Objective Technologies, ChooserPalette is well-written and
easy to use, and comes with excellent documentation and sample code.
ChooserPalette runs under NEXTSTEP 3.3 for NeXT, Intel, HPPA, and Sparc.
