    @Peter S I never understood why put some properties under the machine icon tab that is 70% empty

    basically they are ones that are not often changed
    if you drag a button out usually you leave the font set as is
    things like that

    again ... XOJO uses of those elements isnt what Dave was asking about
    it was "which style of property editor do you prefer" which has nothing to do with how xojo uses the space they have
    it would be possible to make xojo allows the debugger variable pane to be at the bottom by default but also move it to the side
    its just a container control

    as for why it behaves the way it does well ... that has a lot to do with how the IDE communicates with the app being debugged

    @Dave S What would you add, delete, change or add to the way the current Xojo Property Inspector works.

    Oh and color pickers should have a way to set the alpha value or enter a hex color value with alpha!!!

    We could do that in the RS Inspector :P

    But ... keeping this inspector, improving it or reverting back to the RS type, doesn't make much sense as long as we don't have what we're begging for for years already. Stability, some longstanding bugs fixed, web 2.0 and android.
    I can live with the IDE as is now and would opt for a total makeover after the current roadmap being done and stable, since that's what creates commercial value for us, the Xojo developers.
