Thank you for the explanation. It's also great because it makes the code
more compact and better readable.

As I always use a lot of properties, this is ultra-ultra-great! ;-)

It's just the compiler, right? If this code is compiled it can be
executed by an older interpreter? Say ... Gambas 3.9?

Alles Gute
