While I really like Rb's listbox control, it comes up way short for data entry/editing since the only usable control in a cell appears to be a checkbox.
Actually you can edit text in a cell using a textField Or TextArea . See Listbox.CellType
While you have to draw the widget yourself, making a dropdown in a cell is not hard using the events and menuitem.popup
The RB listbox is a VERI flexible thing but it takes a bit to master. Once you do, you can do a lot with it. For example I did this by subclassing the listbox:
And the merged cell are editable including the text over the picture.
I hope they don't do away with the current listbox because IMO it's flexibility makes it a very valuable RAD tool. It enables you to do (with work) a lot of things that would be a lot more difficult from scratch in an Xplatform way.
That said it would be nice to have filemaker like list control (from the late 90's - last time i used it) where you could have a scrollable list of container controls that you layout yourself.
