VCL News - Coming Soon, the QuantumTreeList v5

01 April 2009

In the coming days, we'll be announcing a beta for the QuantumTreeLIst v5 with the following new features/capabilities...

Significant Performance Improvements

(examples of these improvements are 50 times faster full node expansion in smart load mode)

New Layout Capabilities

Nested Bands

VCL Nested TreeList Bands

Customizable Expansion Button Location

VCL TreeList Button Location

Quick Band Visibility Customization (like the QuantumGrid)

Quick Column Visibility Customization (like the QuantumGrid)

Multiple Fixed Bands (no longer limited to one on each side of the TreeList)

Group Summaries

TreeList Group Summaries

Multiple Summaries

TreeList Multiple Summaries

Built-in Context Menus (like the QuantumGrid)

Summary Footer Context Menu (like the QuantumGrid)

Numerous other features will be introduced in the product but I will leave this to our beta announcement.  On a final note - our goal is to allow for easy migration from v4 to v5, therefore, the new QuantumTreeLIst provides implicit streaming compatibility.

Awesome news.  Any chance there will be visual drag/drop indicators (i.e. arrows that show where a drop will go or something)?
