I an evaluating OrbForms Designer and I see that version 1.1 supports native libraries. Are these in the same format as PocketC native libraries? If not, where can I get information on programming a native library for OrbForms Designer?

The native add-ins in OrbForms are different the PocketC libraries, but they share most of the basic concepts. The main differences are:

1. The interface is different and a bit richer
2. The add-in is a code resource, rather than a system library
3. In a standalone app, the native add-in is compiled into the app

The full documentation and samples are included in the download

Are native add-ins created with OrbForms? What is the speed of a native add-in versus a native library created with CW?

Native add-ins are written using CW or GCC, so the speed is the same.
