    I'm glad to hear that the Android version is on the go. http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/questions-help-needed/6004-connection-name.html

    But at the same time I'm afraid that some wishes will be put in the background and not beeing fullfilled.

    I had a wish, for the IDE, which is still important to me, as reported here: http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/basic4ppc-wishlist/1199-ide-form-designer.html
    It is really boring to search for a Control only with the Next button, most of the time I pass it and there is no
    mean, at least to go back. So I must go through all Controls and mostly missing it twice.
    My wish is:
    - having a ComboBox to select any Control in the Form.
    - or at least a Previous button to go back, but this would, really only, be the minimal feature.
    - the ideal function would be: selecting the Control in the IDE, displaying directly the Form Designer with the selected Control brought to front, but this is, i'm afraid, only a dream.

    - Other wishes for the IDE
    - beeing able to set a Panel in a Panel without having the need to use the FormLib library.
    - beeing able to set the TextAlign paramter for Labels and TextBoxes directly in the IDE.

    Another wish is about the variables:
    - the possibility to pass array variables by reference in Sub's.
    - integer variables as iterators in For-Next loops, and treated as Integers and not as Double (Number). I
    remember that in VisualBasic (VB6 and older) For-Next loops with Integer iterators were much faster than with Double iterators.
    But Double iterators must still remain available !

    The first one, for me, is the most important, really boring and not only sometimes but too often for me!
    I have the habit to use several Panels on a same Form instead of having a lot of different Forms.

    Best regards.
