Displaying a Tree


#1

Hi,

Just a request for comments and ideas really. I need to display a Tree
so that users can easily navigate to and from the various branches. I’m
not really sure how best to do this, so I thought I’d ask here in case
anyone had any ideas…

Thanks in advance!

I take it this is a generic browser/html question and doesn’t really
have a Ruby/Rails aspect to it?

I would suggest one of the various JavaScript tree code snippets that
I’ve seen on the web for years. Also there are Java applet
implementations.

Dojo has a nice tree widget. Check out dojotoolkit.org.

Have a look at the test_Tree_*.html examples.
