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.
In this blog post series I’m discussing the making of the ComponentOne WorkSpace app for Windows 8. This third post in the series can also be used as a getting started guide to the new C1RadialMenu control.
A few weeks ago we released the ComponentOne WorkSpace app and it’s been quite a success with over 100 downloads per day and great user feedback. It’s a first generation spreadsheet and rich text editor all-in-one. Oh, and it also opens PDF files too just for fun.
Check out our latest app in the Windows Store, ComponentOne WorkSpace. Create, open, edit, and save text documents and spreadsheets on your Windows 8 devices. The following file types are supported: XLS, XLSX, HTML, HTM, CSV, RTF, TXT, PDF. Open multiple files at one time and quickly access recent documents from the home page.
