FWIW, I have a simple EWB project about to go live. I bought a 3 year SSL
certificate for it this morning, and it is all looking good. When I'm happy with it,
I'll post a link.

Any news on updates with themes and iPhone improvements? I won't hold you to it.

Cool, that would be much appreciated.  The more examples, the better.

I've got EDB 2.12 to get out the door, and then a new EWB build (will
include viewport meta tag for mobile use).  After that, I will be starting
on what will most likely end up as EWB 2.0, which will include:

3rd party component support - will be able to create design-time/run-time
components and install them in the IDE
3rd party database engine support - will be able to create new database
engine modules and install them in the IDE
New theme format and capabilities - will be able to use straight styling
without requiring image parts, will be able to define new theme parts, will
be able to have many different styles for the same part so that you can
attach a specific style to a specific control/control part.
Improved IDE support for transparency/background images, especially for
containers/forms/panels
Possible rewrite of how the framework handles browser events (need to
experiment with this one, but if it works, it will allow for the removal of
a *lot* of workaround code and will allow for all sorts of cool things that
aren't now possible)

I'm hoping that I can get most of this done in a couple of months, so
hopefully it can be ready by early summer.

Sounds good. I think support for mobile devices (in the form of the viewport) is
probably the key requirement. It works now, just not so sweetly as it might. The
rest sounds really nice, and I look forward to it!

https://poll123.com/ is the site. It is still a development server, so may have
outages. Enter "demo" as the join code, and it will show the current question on
our demo system. You can select an answer and send it in. No prizes! In fact,
nothing is caring about this particular poll. But it is an EWB application running
in the browser, which is talking to a RemObjects SDK server which is using https
and JSON for data transfer. The backend talks to a DBISAM database to allocate an
anonymous account, and there are threads that talk to our Azure service which is
handling the questions and the answers (an ASP.NET application).

My next task is to allow people to ask questions via the web too. Right now that
facility is Windows desktop only, though I do have a proof of concept XE2
iPad/iPhone app, but I think the web is the best way forward for the moment.

Thank you to the 15+ people who gave it a go. If you had troubles, please let me
know! I may use you all to crowd-test the app at some point. 8-)

Sorry, that is for your teacher to tell you! The votes go to the central system,
thus to the teacher. You can see the result on the big projected display. 8-)

It didn't work for me using FF. Surprised
Either displayed some error message mentioning -5 and 0 cookies, or it
showed a mostly blank panel - no question. <shrug>

I've changed the way this works on my test system, not on the "live" one. Basically,
refresh the page and it should sort itself out. This is a coding thing, talking to
the back end and getting its "ID".
