In Ray's note to me (http://vcf-online.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=117 ) he mentioned the lack of demo's, which is a valid criticism, IMHO. We have a list of examples, but these do not neccessarily "show off" the VCF as they are meant specifically as learning tools, not too show off the framework.
So I am wondering what people think would make some good "demo" projects, something to show off the VCF. A small project that demonstrates some really cool features, or some other compelling features of the VCF.
Please respond with suggestions here.

I'm not sure the following suggestion would be considered "showing off" special VCF capabilities, but it would be nice for showing the breadth of VCF basic control capabilities in a single app.
It would be nice to have a single app that essentially showed all the basic controls and a couple of nice 'customized' controls such as the calendar/clock example. This could easily be implemented with an app that had a TabbedPages as it's main control. On each page you could have a variety of controls that interacted with one another through a variety of events. For example, on 1 page you could have a TextControl to enter text, press a button that copies it to another control, and have some checkbox controls to change color of text, etc. I think you get the picture of what I am describing.
This may be relatively(?) easy to put together by cutting and pasting from existing examples. There would probably be quite a bit of event handling code to write though.
Although the end result may not be anything spectacular for showcasing one thing in particular, I think it would be nice to see a bunch of VCF capability at one time.
