I work on a redesign of an application for digital evidence of paper
workflow process. It is one of the judiciary procedure, which is
normaly straight forward, but include documents on paper, from some to
a lot. Only a directory is stored digitaly, for statistic purposes.
The idea at redesign is to encourage users to use this tool also for
I confront the following problem: The customer is (also) represented
by their IT engineers and they see things in a particular way (we all
know that feeling, aren't we? ;+).
One of their idea is to use a tree view to show the content of each
file. They have classical (Explorer's like TreeView) in mind.
I don't share their enthusiasm about that, because too many different
things are mixed and presented in not-differentiated way. Beside that,
it is known that not many computer users really understands tree view.
However, I agreed to add this kind of navigation (at this moment).
My question is: do anybody knows of a good example of a context
sensitive, graphicaly appealing, ... treeview?
