that's what I wrote above :-) It doesn't know, because in VID, you have to
provide arguments to 'rotary as space delimited strings ...,e.g.
rotary "A" "B"
rotary ["A" "B"] <--- will not work ...

Well, I had it almost done one day during some earlier beta View stage. I
mean - you take object (pairs of word-name + word-value) and will create
layout in such way, that word-name will serve you as description for field,
and word-value will be put into field ...
obj: context [
Name: "Petr Krenzelok"
should result in:
lo: layout [
text "Name:" name: field obj/name
text "Email:" email: field obj/email
... or something like that ..
Anyway - thanks :-)
