Using a different LCL Widgetset then the one that the IDE uses cannot
generate problems with the designer. This is impossible, because the
interface seen by the designer is the LCL, not the LCL Widgetset. And
the LCL does not change even a bit across widgetsets.

Problems can come across different LCL versions, but this is unrelated
to the topic.

You wrote:

 different component library dynamically, instead it must be rebuilt for a
 different FMCL.</quote>

So I show a screenshot proving that you don't need to use the IDE in
Windows CE to write Windows CE applications. 1 IDE built for whatever
widgetset can write software for any target.

Or did I missunderstand what you were trying to say?
