Excerpt of article text...

Introduction

This is the fifth of six articles in which we are creating an RSS Reader in REALbasic. In previous articles we learned how to use REALbasic's XML classes to parse RSS feeds, use the HTMLViewer class to display articles, and create a custom button control to use as a cross-platform toolbar button.

In this article we will look at one way to save RSS Reader's feed list to a preferences file. It turns out to be a tricky task. In fact, we will need to re-architect our code a bit in order to implement it.

As always, I encourage you to download the project that accompanies this article and use it as a reference as you read along. Things will make more sense if you are able to put it all into context.
