Does PToolbox support tables?? I'm looking for a library that can support multiple forms, and tables... Thanks!

The PToolbox lib does support multiple forms.

It will likely never support tables though. For one, the palmOS doesn't support dynamic table creation. In other words, tables cannot be programatically created on the fly. This means that "at best" resource tables could be supported (pre-built forms which need to be embedded in the app). Currently the toolbox lib has very limited resource form support. I do plan to improve this over time, but my priority is to get resource fields, buttons, lists, and scrollbars working first. Finally the table API is quite complex and I dread trying to support it. So you'll likely never see it. Sorry.

I would suggest using the table functionality in Ccontrols instead.
