Hi Miguel,

Yes I've used wxformbuilder, exactly as is done for the other dialogs
and used Dick's DIALOG_SHIM base class. It's only taken a while
because of the custom widget aspect. I had trouble with connecting
events, but in the end it turned out to be a trivial problem. So
shouldn't be too long before it's ready! :-D

Oh, plus my Raspberry Pi arrived, and it turned out to be too tempting
to play with so that took up a couple of weeks worth of programming!

Best Regards, Brian.
