The Making of WorkSpace Part 4: Recent Documents List

In this post I cover how the list of recent documents is created and managed in the ComponentOne WorkSpace app. From the home page, users can open a document in one of two ways: by browsing their machine or by selecting a recent document from the list on the left. Every time the user opens or saves a new file it gets added to the top of this list. I already discussed how files are opened in part 2 of this series, so what’s left to cover is how the recent document list is managed and how we can persist it between runs of the app.
