Yes, I like this method the best as well. I've encountered this in numerous widget systems (i.e. I've seen in it in these wxWidgets, GTK, Qt, SmartWin++) and all implement in _very_ similar ways, quite oftenly even the names are similar (rarely exactly the same though). On another sidenote: Freddie, you have a small test application for the widget code, right? If so could you maybe commit it to tools/ so that we can use this as well to check the widget code with. -- Giel
