Hi Jonathan,

Though it is not the easiest of transitions you'd make
(count on a lot of 'unlearning') Revolution is a great
developer tool ; don't let the lack of certain
components at first sight discourage you.

For your question, you might want to take a peek at
the example stack "Application Starter Kit" made by
Chipp Walter of Altuit -- it has a toolbar script that
you can take apart and learn from :

While you're at the site, make sure to download the
altPlugins for Revolution -- they form a great set of
tools for the IDE that we all hope will soon be your
new Home :-)

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
