I've not had chance to play with any of your latest libraries yet but just wanted to post here to show my appreciation for the hard work you have obviously put in to creating these excellent additions to B4A for us.

Thank you.

@DonManfred: This is a very nice library. You have become a powerhouse in just a short period of time since you joined the forum.
Can you please add a few more properties like: TextColor, etc. I tried to change the text color in the designer but it does not have any effect.

You can add the button in designer and set the correct eventname. Then you just need to manually create the clickevent.
Asuming you set "IB" as the eventname then you need a sub like
B4X:
Sub IB_Click
    Log("Button clicked")
End Sub
You can create this eventsub with

sub+[space]+[tab]+iconbutton

too.

Sadly the event can not be set in designer... I dont know why. Or better said; i dont know whether i can do something to let the designer create this event with the contectual popup to create members.

I´m here since 2 Years now... I started learning java (to be able to write new libraries (because i LOVE B4A and i want new Features to it...)) three months ago

Can you please add a few more properties like: TextColor, etc.
What exactly? I dont want to blow up the lib with dozend of methods which will not be used and just make the lib bigger
But i can add more methods though

LongClick

to make compatible with standard B4A button?
