Hi,

in wxFormbuilder 3.3.3-beta:
When the "AUI" tree control in "object properties" on the right is collapsed, it keeps opening each time I switch the object in "object tree" on the left. This is no functional issue, but a major annoyance (actually quite a PITA)

All other tree properties seem to behave, just "AUI" is being rude.

Best, ZenJu

    Related issue: the wxAui info stored in the .fpb files massively bloats the XML file size creating a performance problem when opening the file with an editor, even when wxAui is unused by the application.

    => 1. Don't store wxAui attributes that have never been set by the developer => checkbox to disable AUI usage?

    => 2. More general: Don't store empty XML nodes, e.g. <event name="OnActivate"></event>. What's the point of doing so? It just bloats the file size.

    PS: I am in fact using wxAUI in my application, but not via wxFormbuilder. I find it more convenient to have a single point in my code (main dialog constructor ) which handles all of wxAUI rather than have it sprinkled over all dialogs as wxFormbuilder does.
