Sorry if there was miscommunication.  The first I heard about your work on
the tree was in your posting of November 20 to which I replied that we were
doing similar work in the stream carbon_work (see below) .

We really wanted to get as many native widgets implemented for the Mac as
possible for M4.  We were already using the DataBrowser widget in our
implementation of List and once you have delved into DataBrowser you might
as well go all the way.  We are still not quite happy with our
implementation of the native table and tree and so are currently using an
emulated version in the Mac downloads.  If you would like to contribute to
the missing areas, please post patch files against the contents in HEAD.

It is quite a challenge to work across multiple sites and coordinate with
independent contributors.  Any suggestions on how to improve this are
welcome.  I would recommend providing frequent updates on your progress and
providing code submissions at regular intervals.

As part of our effort to support more native widgets, we are also trying to
add the native Tree.  Just thought I would let you know so that you do not
duplicate too much effort.  You can see our progress in the carbon_work

thanks for your fast response.
at the moment i don´t want to deal with any HIView stuff, i´m still
struggling to set up the native tree.
but there´s another thing: the curly bracket "{" doesn´t work in
eclipse. "}" works fine.  just another one of the fixes that didn´t
make it to M3 ?
