Sorry Dave, I don't have any experience with foxGUI. I have actually
stopped using FOX altogether and gone back to using Tk. 18 years
experience with Tcl/Tk so it was natural to adopt RubyTk. fxruby fits
in better with the object hierarchy of Ruby but Tk has functionality
which hardly exists in other graphic toolkits and which I need every
day, like an intuitive listbox and the peerless TkCanvas.
Good luck with the learning curve. I have been programming for 46 years
but am still on the learning curve. Like you it is still 2 steps
forward and 1 back, or even +3 -2.
