Just a general comment:

Have you thought about writing a generic/general linked list unit first and
then using that to implement the widget stuff ?

Since writing linked lists can be tricky... best is to make a generic unit
for it... test it well... and use it ;)

I can think up some reasons why not to use generic linked lists:

1. Speed reasons. ( Generic lists might be a bit slower because of more
procedure calling )

2. Some special linked list stuff is required..

Do any of these reasons apply ?
