Hi Has anyone used OpenRico's "on-demand listbox" LiveGrid or something similar in a Rails app already? How well does it behave? I'm asking this because I need a scrollable list but the number of records in the table could be well above 5000. In the past I've used similar "on-demand fetchings" in desktop apps and it was a real blessing (the database load was kept low and the app's speed was fantastic). Using the conventional techniques such as paginated browsing is out of the question in the app I'm going to develop. If not, would anyone be interested in getting this (and some other stuff such as the accordion from OpenRico) as a plug-in or added to Rails itself in a way similar as to Protoype and script.alico.us are transparently merged into form_remote and RJS? Best regards Peter De Berdt

Hi Peter, The Rico website is actually done in Rails so the LiveGrid demo there is working with Rail already. Richard Cowin, the Rico architect, and I have discussed the possibility of added Rico support to Rails in some fashion, perhaps as Prototype and script.alico.us are as you mentioned. I'll forward your email to Richard offline and he can follow up with you directly. Also, if anyone else is interested in formally adding some sort of Rico support to Rails, we'd love to hear about it. Thanks. Steven Smith FiveRuns

Openrico has also a nice implementation of rounded corners which already got extracted for the purpose of using with rails: http://encytemedia.com/blog/articles/2005/12/01/ri...
