well, Richmond, I did not try the message box, since there is no popup for icongravity
in the inspector for radiobuttons and checkboxes, I dared to think this might not be allowed
for these kind of buttons. My fault, so extraordinary sorry! 8-)

OK, message box works, so this may mean that this feature just did not make it into the IDE, right?
