I tried all the stuff below as it wasn't working. first i just compiled
then did a make and make install but not in comp in the main folder.
so do you not have to compile changes in the IDE? just make once saved

I added "Properties" as you would normally in a class. (does *_Properties*
with an underscore refer to something else?)
Top of the Balloon.class file in comp/src/gb.form/.src dir now looks like

*Static Property Read Control As ControlStatic Property Delay As
IntegerStatic Property Font As FontStatic Property Background As
ColorStatic Property Foreground As ColorStatic Property Read Visible As
I added the Background and Foreground and I also added the Background_Read
and write events (i copy-n-pasted the Font stuff and edited it to color)
had to do it a little different to how the Font just set FBalloon.Font to
account for the drawing stuff involbed, didn't think just setting the
balloon forms background property would suffice.  but that's neither here
or there as i've stumbled at the first hurdle of just getting the new
Properties visible lol.
I wondered if the list of an objects properties were listed in another file
Thanks again.
