I do hope that Michael v C is more successful.
At home I have a NAS by QNAP..
Since the latest update it features a really nice HTML GUI.
It nicely can do forms and many Lazarus-like GUI elements and
-functions, and it can show status changes really fast (which is not
easy with a HTTP-connected, browser-based GUI).
I do suppose, they use a "standard" "widget set" for this (EXTJS or
something), but I never saw such a thing working this great.
No idea how they designed the GUI. It is so complex that I would be
astonished if they did not use a GUI designer tool for this.
If Lazarus would be able to offer such a capability, driven by the
standard GUI design tool (of course taking some limitations into account
in that mode), this would be a major argument for doing embedded
application with Lazarus. (This was why I did the research at that time.)
