Hi,

In the application I'm creating I want to display a directory listing
similar to Tivo's Photo Viewer.

What I would like to know is if there is a way to use the BList from
bananas, or some other List object to display this directory structure?
My dificulty arises from the fact that BLists only have one item per
row, and I would like to display 3 items per row.

Right now without using any BLists I've created a simple algorithm that
draws the filenames on the screens and I can move through the filenames
using a highlight. But I have a problem because this method doesn't
allow for the page to scroll up and down and display the items that are
hidden off of the bounds of the screen.

Can someone help in explaining how to either have the page scroll to
show these hidden items or a better approach using BLists?

Thanks,

Carlos

Carlos, I don't believe you'll find many (any?) developers here, this is
mostly a user's forum. Does anybody have a place to point him to for
developer help? I'm sure we all here want to encourage developers as
much as possible.

I apologize for the developer question...

If anyone can give me some feedback on my question I'd appreciate it.
If not...no biggie!

Thanks once again,

Carlos

Hell, no reason to apologize, I was just trying to tell you not to get
your hopes too high for a useful response! Even though we'd like to.
Maybe Dave can give you a pointer if he shows back up.

Yeah, but as a TiVo employee he is limited by what he can and can not say.

Not sure of that message was facetious or not...

Just saying that Dave works for the company so don't expect anything outside
the realm of what is already published by TiVo.

Not at all, sorry if it came off that way.

No doubt about it. It just didnt seem like the OP was asking for much.

Well...I wasn't expecting this post to kick up so much dust.

Anyways, after long hours of beating my head against the wall I was
able to get an answer for what I was looking for. Thanks anyways,

Nah, it's typical, tangential issues nearly always come up, it keeps it
interesting. Glad you found the answer though!
