Not at all, as you have always been terrific in my view.

I hope you dont think I was trying to be disparaging in my prior
posting. You had asked earlier about treeviews and so I posted
comments about an impressive control from Dream Company.

Jason / Helen,

What can we do about collating a more formal list of third party IBO
aware controls somewhere.

* The egroups files facility is OK, but I think it is really best used
for temporary file storage rather than a permanent home for such
things (and lacks the flexibility of assigning links rather than
files, where an author may prefer to keep files at their own site).

* The AddOn directory has gotten rather cluttered and out-dated over
the years. It really needs cleaning out - and I would suggest that,
rather than replacing it we find a formal, separate, home for third
party components.

Perhaps the IBO Community page can become the "IBO Community Third
Party Components" page. (Bit long for the button, but you get what I
mean.) When you decide what you need, post a message to this list and
developers like myself can send our contributions accordingly.

My I suggest that contributions (and the list on the page) include
Delphi/C++B version support, IBO version last tested and
Testing/Production level indication. - along with a description of the

This way components can be provided to the wider community without
requiring too much intervention.
