Alex: status of Trees?

I am wondering about the status of the Tree and Tree Grid controls. From the very few posts I have been able to find, it seems that the Tree control is barely functional (only shows plain text, minimal API for manipulation, clunky css depth requirements, etc). There are even fewer posts regarding the mythical Tree Grid - does this even exist? I cannot find examples anywhere.

I love this package, and am very interested to know if improvements to Tree-related functionality are in the works.

There are few issues with the tree control (maybe not as bad as you described, but still...) -

- keyboard navigation does not work
- Firefox 1.0.7 duplicates nodes on expand/collapse (FF1.5 is fine)

there is no limit on tree depth (but only 6 indent levels are defined in CSS - if you need more, just add more). You can also style your tree differently, for example, indicating depth with colors instead of indentation.

If you see any other problems, let me know.

The only tree examples so far -


There is also sidebar control (contributed by LBraine) which is modified tree styled as file explorer sidebar in XP -


Tree grid was in early 2.0 alpha but then I removed it because there was too little time to make it working properly. It will be back at some point.

Should I be holding my breath for Tree Grid, or will I pass out first? In the meantime, would you mind posting what code you already have, even if it's only semi-functional? Very eager for this.
