Thanks for clarifying.  I have always wanted to try fpGUI, but it's always
the same fear that stops me:  like msegui, the issue is there is no
torry.net for it with years and years of contributed components.  It seems
like a good tool to start a project in, if you don't require some special
component from torry.net or lazarus.  I always end up needing to pull in
some component from the internet at some point, I tend not to write a pure
GUI app that uses no one elses components.

I hate this fear that I have, because it causes me to stick to using
delphi since I know I have an insurance plan available (torry.net) if I
need a component that I don't feel like writing myself, that someone
already else has.
