Yes food on the table is the important thing.

Because of where my applications go, things like re-order
and such like get switched off. When you have several users,
they MUST NOT be allowed to change the layout, so that
another operator moving machines does not have to reset
things to how they work, in most cases the operator moves
around. Flexibility can be a problem as well as an asset <g>

FastReport gives me the ability to allow the customers to
make layout changes, but again, standardization is

So if your customers like the bells and whistles then you
have them available - worse case you can get at the code and
change things. It's just nice to see other peoples ideas
from time to time ( unless they patent them <g> )
