ListBox to TreeView - Join Dialog v2!

I’ve had a productive morning here - implementing a major UI upgrade to my still-bright-shiny-and-new AbiCollab dialogs on Win32. Both the Accounts and Join dialogs had been created with Listboxes, because they’re pretty simple. The Linux GUI has some more sophisticated GTK control, but my first priority was getting it working.

Now that it works, I have some time to go back and make things nice. In this case, re-doing the Join dialog so that we have Buddies as “parent nodes” and their shared documents as child nodes. I’ll refrain from discussing the few minor snags in figuring out the Win32 API to get this to go, and just give you the juicy screenshots.

Isn’t that much nicer?

Now back to hacking…
