Comment on "THCanvasView: Finder-Like Icon View for Cocoa"
by Scott Stevenson — Nov 16
@mark: So how about a reimplementation using the new NSCollectionView? Would be nice

I'm not necessarily opposed to that, but what did you have in mind, specifically? NSCollectionView is already "done" as a stock class, so I'm not sure what THCanvasView would add to it.

As far as I can tell, NSCollectionView is based around the idea that the display is grid-based, whereas THCanvasView allows abitrary positioning. I think it would be more work to try to modify NSCollectionView than just starting from scratch.

I am working on an updated version of THCanvasView for Leopard, but it doesn't use NSCollectionView.
