Thanks for the info.  Knowing that, I was able to create a simple app in
the Dabo Designer that contains a Notebook.

But, I'm having a heck of a time finding any documentation at all on
Dabo.  I looked all thru the website(s), and have combed the Dabo
software package itself.

Either I'm doing something wrong, or documentation is pretty sparse for
Dabo.

What little info I could find on the Dabo Wiki seems pretty old.  I also
watched the two Sizer videos, but there's not enough info there to learn
much.  

I read somewhere that they are concentrating on the User Interface
designer instead of the database aspects.  The GUI maker is what I'm
interested in using, not the rest.  I don't want to code the GUI
manually.  Do you know where I can find more information on the
Designer?

Thanks,

Bill
