Yep, Richard, I agree.

After asking the mobGUI author to please share the source code with those
of us who have purchased his libraries, and receiving a resounding, "No!",
I decided to roll many of my own mobile controls, and created dropTools for
some of them.

After talking with Jacque, it's clear there are too many screensizes to
code for, so we need to create projects which dynamically resize based upon
screensize. That's one of the reasons I chose to build my tools with the
ability to set the sizes programmatically with no loss of quality.

One of the better ones is a configurable button with icon which can be set
programatically, so for instance if one was trying to make a series of tile
buttons, one for each filename and assign a different icon and color and
highlight based on file type, it would be possible. Works with both mobile
and desktop.
