As the header says, how do I know what's available? For example, the
ListView control has "singlesel", "hottrack", etc. Where are these

There are a few ways to answer this, none of them really good.
a) In the docs. There are number of pod/html files included in the source
distribution at SouceForge. I don't know if they are included in the PPM
module yet. The documentation is however incomplete.
I have also included (and I hope that's ok, but it guess it is) the docs in
The GUI Loft for easy reference from within the program (with control
sensitive help as well).
b) In the sample apps included in the source distro. Few things beat
learning by example. The examples are however incomplete. The upside: this
is working code (mostly).
c) In the GUI.xs file from the source distro. Search for an "-optionname"
you already know and do some code walking. You'll figure it out. This is
the source. It is complete :)
d) The Win32 API docs. When you find a [TBD] in the Win32::GUI docs,
it's often possible to find stuff here which will help you along. It also
contains basic information about a lot of Win32 stuff that is useful to
know when you write Windows programs. Don't assume that you _don't_ need to
e) The GUI Loft is pretty much feature complete when it comes to
supported options. Check the Properties window for a selected control, but
keep in mind that The GUI Loft controls sometimes support more properties
than what's available as -options in Win32::GUI.
