    Hi Erel,
    I'm using the new version (5.01.1) of b4a and it's very amazing.

    1) I would like to have the "Bring to front" and "Send to back" context-menu in the "View-Tree" pane of the Visual Designer.
    When I have some overlapping panels in layouts (used a VB Tabs) I cannot bring them to front unless I click on the abstract designer. I would be very useful for me.
    2) Is there any way to change the label/button text (better, also style, size and colors) when switching from a variant to another ? I would like to use a different text when I change variant because I move and resize the views according to the available space...
    Thanks a lot for your work.

    click on the view that you want to move and keep pressing the mouse button
    then move the mouse up or down
    release the button when it's at the right position

    1. Answered above.

    2. You can change the text in the designer script.

    1. Thanks.
    2. Erel, the scripting approach is very handful, and I usually use it, but it is less intuitive than the WYSISYG one.
    The designer already allows to change the location and the size when changing variant (but don't know what other properties are "forked"): in FUTURE versions, please, consider satisfying this request. Thanks.
