Can't you just filter your client data via category open and closed?
Mr. Rankin, My custom app matters will soon allow for civil cases and multiple plantiff's defendants.
I will forward you over a copy once finished. I just filter via category ... open and closed. The problem I face is if I traverse the VFS for infolog .. it crashes my server because there are so many infologs. My matters app VFS is getting full too. Takes a good 30 seconds to travers. I was going to round up the old folders and put them in a dated folder for faster searching.
A NM widget on the traversing of directory during file select would be beneficial.
