Thank you for the replies. I appreciate it.
I have already looked at Java, and am having issues with event handlers for Swing devices firing predictably. I posted my Java issue on Stack Overflow and got flamed quite rudely. I am 60 years old, and expected a higher level of professionalism from that community.
So, I came back to what I am familiar with. This community has always been polite when I needed assistance.
I can understand that there is a lack of demand for wxWidgets under Android, and running on rooted Android devices that have had Linux installed on them....But I had to ask! :-)
Our Plan "B" was a cheap laptop - and of course that eliminates Arm devices, but fits nicely with CodeBlocks and wxWidgets.
Thank you for the reply, I'll mark the post as solved.
