Spent a couple hours playing with Xojo yesterday and I must agree that development time is probably faster.

Didn't delve too deeply, but creating a simple ListBox (table view) is a doddle and I worked out how to implement read/write of the contents to disk fairly quickly (couldn't find this in any of the tutorials). For interest, here's the save handler which looks familiar.

'---------------
  dim dlg as new SaveAsDialog
  dim f as FolderItem
  dim t as TextOutputStream
  dim count, i as integer
  
  dlg.PromptText = "Save URL list as"
  dlg.SuggestedFileName = "MyURLList"
  
  f = dlg.ShowModal()
  if ( f <> nil ) then
    try
      t = TextOutputStream.Create(f)
      try
        count = URLList.ListCount
        for i = 0 to count - 1
          t.WriteLine( URLList.list(i) )
        next i
      finally
        t.close
        t = nil
      end try
    end try
  end if
  
  return true
