    quick question thought: How do I turn off right side slider so it does not appear on screen at all as seen on taster3.jpg picture?
    And yeah, expect some skin from me

    BTW I am unable to close FreeDrive from keyboard...

    Hi m8, the slider doesnt show when in 3d mode :-) only in 2d. I understand what you mean when you say you cant close it via keyboard.. I will add some keystrokes to the next version :-)

    Sorry for beeing unclear.. its just pressing Alt+F4 closes SDK within Freedrive, but then you can only kill it from Task manager. It does not respond to another Alt+F4 nor I can close it from task bar using mouse (no context menu appears). It could be great to have ability to completelly close by single keystroke... you know, i am tochsreen-less

    Anyway, thanx for your great work and enjoy your weekend!

    ahh.. so you are killing via F4, yep thats the SDK's crappie way it runs, if you close the app with the exit from the menu it shuts down the SDK correctly. I will look into subclassing itself and check for the destory command.. if it gets it, it will close the SDK down before itself. Thanks for the info, I would of thought this might be a problem with other apps (frontends) that do this.

    Will be in touch very soon to go over some things we have planned to see if you may be able to help

    Glad you like the site, seems to be the general feeling from the whole community which is fantastic! It should evolve again this weekend.
