I would like to implement a Finder/iTunes sidebar for my app. I have an NSOutlineView with a data source and everything, except I can't seem to implement the outlineView:isGroupRow: delegate method. I've tried returning yes for all items, identifying by index, string value, and nothing seems to work. The outline view is in IB with highlight style "source list" (for the active blue/inactive gray background). The examples on Apple.com (SourceView and DragNDropOutlineView) are so complex I can't navigate through them - they're designed for higher level programmers than me. All of their data is loaded from the system, resulting is tons of code that I simply can't wade through. I can't believe something like this could be so difficult. There are virtually no examples on the web, either- most of them were written before Leopard, using special backgrounds and gradients for the highlighting. Thanks in advance to anyone who can lead me in the right direction with this.
