linked list

Hi,

I want to use a hiearchy of text boxes. This will change with time, so
I'd like to be able to generate a linked list from the hiearchy. This
Hiearchy is just a tree structure like what you see in the directory
browser. Then I can generate the full names and create links to the
fully named page.

Is linked lists possible in the VB6 that comes with Visio2003 ? I
could easily export the text and the coordinates and use another
scripting language and then re-import the data to use to generate the
file.

Any one know about linked lists or an easy way to do this?

sorry if this is an incoherent post but I am tired. I have searched
the Web looking for VB linked list examples but they do not exist as
far as I can tell.

Thanks,
Art

v2003 comes with VBA not VB6. Linked lists should be codeable. You might
check Michael McMillan's "Data Structures and Algorithms Using VB.Net"
(Chapter 11) for examples on how to do it.

Thanks for the note and book reference. I'll have a look. I was in a
late nite panic when i wrote the post. It is a personal project and I
felt stymied when i thought about creating a data structure for the
project.

In case your interested I have a hiearchy like below as shapes with
text in them-- wish visio had pages organization as a tree -- . I will
take the hiearchy and create the files and links to them, via
something like linked lists. This will be a note taking system. I
could use a directory browser instead to access grouped pages in
different files. There may not be a file for each categrory.

cheers,

Art,
you might want to check out the 'mind map' operations in v2003, they link to
w2003 (in office) and are basically a tree diagram/outline structure.

Hi Al,

Thanks,

I downloaded the mindmap and had a look at it. It is similar to what i
want. It also gave me more insight-refinement into what i want.

They outline tree is useful but seems to be secondary to the outline
structure. I'd like a little more control to what the tree, its so to
speak hyperlinking does. I'd like to go directly to other files. It
seems to go only to a page-object within the current drawing. I may
find a way to use it still. I could from the page-object then link out
to another drawing.
Anyways thanks ,

art,
Once your diagram has the structure you want, each of the shapes may have
hyperlinks attached to them. This then allows you to link external
documents.

Al,

thanks again. Yes that would work but I don't think it is something
for me.

How about this as hackers solution (not yet implemented) !

Tree Hiearchy Tool : Provide Tree Widget to visio files and pages for
hiearchial organization.

Hackers attempt #1 -
Given a a set of files in a directory structure , the tool when loaded
traverses the files and directories and builds up the tree structure.
The page names provide the hiearchy. One would use the tree widget as
a primary page navigation tool.

This I think would be a good add in with possible resale value. I
would use it. I mention it to you just because you would probably make
a good comment on it.

Thanks,
Art

If I remember correctly, I think the SDK has a tree diagram example (I know
I've seen a version floating around on the web).
