The editor progresses

Work continues on my editor, albeit at a slower pace than it should.  I have a working database explorer control prototype done my editor.  So far it recognizes any running Navision instances, pulls their server and database info and adds it to the explorer.  It then allows browsing of information for any object in any of those databases.  The treeview control itself is from an open source project (which can be found at CodeProject or SourceForge) called TreeViewAdv, written by Andrey Gliznetsov.  I have to say it is a very nice control and I recommend it to anyone who needs a treeview that supports "load on demand" or columnar data.

In the process of writing this control I recognized problem in my CSide Utils project.  Apparently version 5.0 Navision clients (and I'm guessing those prior) return time data fields with a fractional decimal of seconds on the end (such as 12:00:00.344).  Apparently you cannot pass a value like this back to the cilent even though it returned the value in the first place.  I added a clean little compiled regex to deal with this into the project.  I will be updating the primary source trunk for my project and uploading it to the website soon.  I will also update the download on Mibuso with this latest version (skipping 1.1 altogether).
