Oh, it did ! It was in the very nice patient summary page
somehwere in the bottom 3rd of the left pane.

Note that I do agree with Richard that a tree control is not
always (maybe often) the best way. BUT it will get us there
today. Given careful inner design we can change to something
better tomorrow.

I am very relieved to hear you state this, Ian. I was unsure
until now whether you were OK with that LayoutManager thing I
did some time ago.

See, the reason for their being lazy lurkers right now (they
can for all I care) is that they either want to reap the
benefits if and when there are benefits to reap (the governement)
or reap the profits if and when profits are to be made by
support contracts and such (the companies).

Precisely. a) we can certainly get accreditation should that
be needed one day, b) if some stupid bureaucrat thinks they
can come along and tell me I cannot type my progress notes
into a text file but must either write it on paper or buy
their software I got a nice, sharp, hand-forged Katana in the
back of my cupboard, hehe :-)

Sincerely, there's no doubt that accreditations CAN be
obtained if needed.
