Have a look at http://www.litwindow.com/library
especially also at the RssReader tutorial step 3 and 4.
The Lit Window Library lets you bind a container with an interface that
follows STL conventions to a list box. The list box will be filled with
the elements from the container.
You specify a rule
ListBox.Items = Container
It also lets you bind the current list box selection to a form.
You write a rule
ListBox.Current = Form.Details
Upon seeing this the generic mediator "RapidUI" will automatically
transfer the contents of the currently selected element from the
Container to the Form and back again, when a user changes a widget.
I am looking for people willing to contribute to the Lit Window Library.
