Hi Randy,

Well, it's not a lot yet :) A widget is just a control capable of being used
in your program, like a button or checkbox, etc...

The thing that I created is only a first draft and there are a *lot* of
issues that I'm going to document and send off to the list.

As it stands, my control doesn't do much, but I got to the point where it
did *something* and I wanted to check the code into CVS for various reasons.
Any screenshots that I could send you would fail to dazzle.
