After a couple of days hard work I’ve finally got a tab control built that I like. It has been interesting, but mostly frustrating.
The first couple of days with a new language can be very frustrating as you are learning the ins and outs. Much of the frustration comes because of the cryptic error messages that are being thrown your way every time you do something creative. Your frustration lessons substantially as you actually learn what the error messages mean, but alas, that doesn’t help the beginner.
One of the hard things about Prototype is that it doesn’t come with any documentation. A couple of people have taken it upon themselves to document the library and there are even some nifty unit tests, but the best knowledge still comes from reading the source. If you are anxious for more this site may be able to help, or, you can stay on the cutting edge by following the feed on del.icio.us.
