StoneTable, the List Manager replacement from StoneTablet Publishing, has been updated to version 4.1.0. The upgrade improves support for Mac OS X and the latest versions of the Carbon SDK under Mac OS 9.x. Support for non-Carbon applications is still provided.
StoneTable lets you replace the Macintosh List Manager and “leap past its limitations, according to the folks at StoneTablet Publishing. You can often begin by making minor changes to your application to replace the List Manager by changing the “L” prefix on the List Manager function calls to “TMX_” for StoneTable function calls. Then by adding a few more calls to the StoneTable library you can have columns with different widths and column titles. The product has been shipping since 1992; version 4.0 began shipping in February of 1999.
StoneTable lets you tackle the basic single and multiple line of text in a cell with in-line editing, different styles per cell, sorting, cells with menus or check boxes, and even cells with formulas and dynamic computation as cells change plus more, according to
MacTech magazine. For the PowerPlant user, there’s a class similar to LTable for integrating StoneTable into the PowerPlant environment. For the ToolsPlus user, there’s a sample application illustrating how to integrate StoneTable into the ToolsPlus environment.
The 4.1.0 update is free to all registered owners of any version of StoneTable, It can be
downloaded from StoneTable’s download site. Others can buy StoneTable for US$100 through July 31. After this time, the price will go up.
Additional information about StoneTable including ordering information, examples of the functionality, and a working demo can be found at the
StoneTable Web site. The demo now provides sample 68K, classic Power PC, and Carbon executables.
