Sounds interesting. But are you expecting help or just want to
let us know about your project? I see no real problems in what
you're planing to do: After you have parsed the script and know
which widgets are needed in the form simply call the functions
for creating a form and then the functions for creating the ob-
jects. Perhaps using a single callback function for all objects
will be the most simple way to deal with user events. Then you
call fl_do_forms() to "run" the script.

If you want some special widget (like your "customizeable table
with search/sort widgets") we can discuss that but it needs to be
well specified and useful also for others. And I am, of course,
always prepared to accept new widgets written by others as long
as they seem to make sense and are written in a reasonable way;-)

                               Best regards, Jens
