    I am asking the question because of the idea of @DonManfred about removing a view from a service and his warning about me adding another view again and again.

    So, aware of the fact I couldn't declare views from as Process_Globals, I have tried to use lists : a Globals list to add the created view and a Process_Globals one to add the view got from the previous list.

    Like this :

    Sub Process_Globals
    Dim L1 As List
    End Sub

    Sub Globals
    Dim mView As Label
    Dim L As List
    End Sub

    Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    If Not(L.IsInitialized) Then L.Initialize
    If Not(L1.IsInitialized) Then L1.Initialize

    If FirstTime Then
    "Some text"
    End If

    End Sub
    Then on a service I think I can get the reference to the view

    Sub AddOverlay
    Dim mView As Label
    End Sub
    This works. But could you please, tell me if I am really getting a reference to the View that I had declared in the Main Globals ? (This to be able to study how to use removeView later).

    Many thanks

    Maybe you could put all of this in the Code Snippets section of the forum.
