:D I think Servoy is the GREAST thing since sliced bread. :D

But I have a wish list:
Having shown Servoy to several clients and having gotten similar reactions:

It would be great to have a progress bar (loading display) CHECKING FOR NEW VERSION----- LOADING DATA---ECT. The most important time in
a new product demo is the first 30 seconds, when the load starts the customers
does not see anything happening and thinks the application locked up.

Also I have had comments about lack of TAB ORDER.

I realize there lots of great major features you are adding every day but sometimes the little things make the biggest first impression.

Thanks for your time

I agree as well. God knows it's already better than watching 40 or so Filemaker windows loading, but some kind of visual diversion is always a good idea... a progress bar, maybe an alert that displays for a few seconds, whatever. Something to tell the user "yes, i know you're there, here's what's going on, be right with you".

GREAT product, wonderful evangelizing by Bob Cusick. Anyone who has an opportunity to go to one of his familiarization seminars should drop everything to do so.

Tab order is already on the todo, we could try to move it up a little.
