  • You can only have one GraphicsWindow in Small Basic unless you use an extension. SB is coded with only one instance of GW.

    You can write your own extension, but adding additional GWs is actually one of the more difficult things to achieve. 

    Fremy did it first with his FC extension - he actualy created multiple instances of SB (new processes) to achive it, running several exes in the backgroud.  The approach I use in LD extension is to store separate data for each GW and swap all the data in or out of the one SB provides when the user switches between them - there is only ever the one (SB instance) window active at a time.
