Rewrote OutputCode+Outline part:
Subs are now supported.
Don't center windows of type dialog (?)
Controls without extensions now supported.
Warnings are added if a command is sent to a control without extension
and if menu subs and control subs have a name-clash (different parameters)
Add/Edit menu items modified:
PROMPT to get item name. Branch name suggested in a following way: [onMenuItem]
instead of ??? [???]
subs as menu handlers
Added two lines to the ini-file: previous directories for file-dialogs
Fixed bug with window type combo-boxes.

Version 1.0 c
July 28, 2006
Added a menu option to retrieve window layout from bas source code
After the source is parsed, a temporary file is created and loaded
using modified [openFile] branch.
Note: this code is not perfect. Limitations are:
can't read windows/controls with variable parameters
does not search for color and font information
full path for bmp-buttons is required (will abort if not provided)
code does not check the control handle extensions to find the
next available number for auto-generated extensions (might be added)
modified [removeMenuData] gosub: replaced loops with REDIM.
modified [openFile] and [saveFile], to store the file path for FILEDIALOG
Version 1.0 b

Reworked the Properties dialog
Made the text-boxes bigger to prevent user "lockout"
Added control fonts and Font Selector
Added Control Color field for controls that will allow.
Added right-click pop-up menus for controls and windows.
This gives you access to dialogs and some new features.
Added a file-dialog for finding Just BASIC.

Added Preferences to the Options menu
Allows you to specify and save default Freeform J parameters.
Added extensions to graphic-box output code.
Added a 'save as' routine
Added Copy Control
Added "Show All Controls" Dialog
This also allows user to change the order in which the controls
are positioned, and tabbed to, in the GUI.
FreeForm-J now automatically adds the Edit menu when the first text-editor is added.
FF=J will remove this menu when all text-editors have been deleted from a form.
Fixed a bug that was not producing a wait in menu item branches.
