I don't know if it is related or not, but I already reported /Pro version problems using call/wait in button action block. Sometimes it crashes, sometimes it doesn't ... I just hope we will get the top super ultra cool event/tasking/threading system one day :-) We are not so much far away - View is single threaded and look what can be achieved by clever event handling. We just need more non-blocking, async behavior, and RT expressed their will to support us with async protocols in some possibly not so distant future. I hope more port types will come "waitable - non-blocking" (e.g. ODBC ..) -pekr-
