Wow dude, that is coming along nicely. I really like how you have used the nested layouts. I think it's a great example implementation.

By the way, did you make that gray color scheme? In the beta2 release I am going to introduce "ytheme-gray" which is very similar. It themes the layouts, tabs, resizables and the new dialog class as well.

By the way, is you IE problem related to adding and removing nested layouts? If yes, I have that fixed.

honored, sir.

>did you make that gray color scheme?

I simply greyscaled all the blue images.
I look forward to yours.

>is you IE problem related to adding and removing nested layouts?

I'll check that. I had it all working yesterday, with the more complex admin app. I'll find it.

I'm due to implement some toolbar action soon.

It's wasn't FF that had the problem. It wasn't actually receiving the page from the server.

I just tried again and got the page. Good use of available tools. Might be just a bit busy though. I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at.

it's a music browser / streamer.

interface is similar to iTunes.

If you have Genres which contain Artists which contain Albums, I'd go for a TreeView in the "west" panel.

Then a dbl-click on one of the TreeNodes would display details about that node, whether it was an artist, or an album.

It's not quite clear about the heirarchical nature of the data at first view with all 3 grids looking equal.

doesn't anyone use iTunes?

I do. it's not bad for browsing music.

takes up little vertical real-estate.

You will probably love the latest thing I am working on. It's class name is DataView. It allows you to bind a data model to an element+template. Is very lightweight and much faster than a grid.

It handles event delegation for you automatically. This means you don't have to addListener to all the nodes, it listens on the container element for events that bubble and fires the right events. I am adding support for selection (like the grid) right now.

The reason this is cool is you'll be able to use it to do simple lists (like in your UI) without the need for a heavy grids and you can put anything in the list (not limited to a table row like view, it uses a DomHelper template so it can be anything).

It should be cool. I am going to use it to create a detailed view in the rss reader.

great. like most people in the music biz, my client uses a mac with safari. apparantly, safari's a bit slow on teh first page render, probably because of all the grids.

Yep. Safari's rendering blows.

No, I'm not hip-cool-and-trendy enough. No Ipod, no camera-phone. I don't do gadgets.

I don't do TV, cellphones, xbox, camera or cars but I screamed "motherer" when I lost my ipod in a snowbank.

I like boobs.
