As a developer, I have never been required to create any apps
that run outside of Windows before.
I now have a client that wants something built to run on OSX
as well as Windows.
We usually use Macromedia Director as the choice because it
is cross-platform by design and we have never come across anything
it cannot do compared to any other development platform.
However, I have come across a puzzling discovery. There does
not appear to be an Xtra that will create scrollable tables/grids
in Director (that allows both text and images) for Mac/OSX!
There are many options (and I have used many of them with
great success) in Windows, but despite the fact that Director is
cross-platform nobody has been successful in creating a smooth
functioning grid of this nature for Mac/OSX ... in fact they (Xtra
devs) clearly state they cannot create one for Mac/OSX
So, I am hoping that somebody out there can explain what they
are using with Director to create nice looking scrollable
tables/grids that can contain both images and text for their
projects in Mac/OSX? There has to be a way to do it, since I really
can't see how many types of projects could be built without one.
Perhaps this would suit your needs - it's not actually an
xtra, it's a dcr file you import into your movie which allows you
to create tables, dialogs and menus. It's therefore cross platform
and also works in shockwave:
