Subject Re: Looking for a HowTo on adding widgets to CForms.
Date Thu, 10 Jun 2004 15:23:00 GMT
Hi Vilya,

I'm sorry that I can't point you to an existing HOWTO.
I had the same problem some time ago when I wanted to write a new data type
for CForms.

Perhaps it's time to collect this information on the wiki.
I've created two pages which can be filled by those who know something about
these things or are forced to learn it (hint!):
