Nice looks, slick, quick, and very intuitive. Just re-built the most complex screen from my best-selling application and it worked fine - no crashes or problems. The code generation needs a few more tweaks, but that was my only real issue. ..

NB*: Don't take the current lack of comments to mean the community isn't grateful for the work you've done.
