Mmm… solid few hours of programming.. and milestone!. I’m going to take a break.
It might not sound like a big deal, but being able to handle different rows for different sections, for code export, preview and viewing is reasonably complex. Oh! I also had to store all this data in a string and had to create the control in a way that was ‘modular’ and could be reused for other complex data types. Oh! Actions for each of these different rows in different sections is also supported.
But the point is I can now do some much funkier stuff :).
Tomorrow I’m going to extend it further so that you can have separate images for each row in each section and separate footer text as well.
This is perhaps the best time for anyone reading this that is using Dapp to be making feature requests. I haven’t been this active in coding Dapp since well.. I coded it in the first place.

This is a great start, but when using a group tableview, and having 2 or more sections, all it does is copy the cell names and makes it the same for all sections. Why? Lol
I can answer this ;). The reason why was that it used to be too hard to have different cells for different sections (with the way I’m storing data in the DB)!… and I didn’t know how on earth I could do it. But I got it done now.. only took 2 days :).
After I’ve extended it a bit further, I’ll be moving on to Tab Bar controllers tomorrow. It’s going to be challenging because I’m still not sure how they are going to work from a UI point of view. Also, am I going to allow multiple navigation controllers sitting on top of tab bar controllers?…
Well, I’m tired so I’ll look into that tomorrow ;).
