    thinBasic 1.10.5 UI is becoming more easier and more clean (I hope)

    Another new set of features you will get in next thinBasic 1.10.5 is the ability to specify shorter sentences for creating windows and controls and later, when it's the right time, specify the missing information using a simple <object>.<property> notation. This is possible using the new "Name" option that will allow to give a name to Windows and Controls and use that name to reference to specific windows or controls without the need to know windows handle and control IDs

    Of course remaining 100% compatible with previous notation.
    No need to change anything in your scripts if you do not want.

    A script example and a bundled exe can show you how.
    uses "ui"
    
    
    begin ControlID
      %lbl
      %txt
      %btnClose
      %stBar
      %listbox
      %progressbar
    end ControlID
    
    
    '---Create Window and controls using new shot notations
    '---All the rest of properties can be defined later during window events
    DIALOG New Pixels, Name frmMain, 0, "Window to demonstrate Named Controls"
      control add label     , name lbl      , frmMain.Handle, %lbl      , "This is a label"
      control add textbox   , name txt      , frmMain.Handle, %txt      , "This is a textbox"
      control add Button    , name btnClose , frmMain.Handle, %btnClose , "Close"
