OK, I am starting to understand, where all the concept leads, although I will wait for some results. I also read , but I have to say, that from my experience I don't fully agree to automatic UI generation. I would prefer whole framework to function as repository of objects, all their logic and relation, and not trying to guess what is the best way for user to see his/her data presented. So, I would probably prefer some kind of "Screen painter", with ability to import certain items. E.g. - how will you represent block? Will it be combo-box, list-box, or more complicated grid? You want list, I want grid - what then? :-) And if not, I will probably have to change UI generation code of framework anyway. It is all about your users. "My" users are used to navigate UI via keyboard, Esc closes window, enter edits on grid, insert inserts new record on grid, delete deletes it, etc. etc ... others will have another experience ... ... my opinion should not be regarded being a demagogy. It just represents some pov. I will wait for what can be achieved first, before I decide to go further .... btw: what about access rights aka roles? Will it be possible to define some via rules? :-) How engine will work with them? Eh, can't wait for for rules to work :-) -pekr-
