It would be nice to be able to view the code and form at the same time.  However, this isn't possible with C#Builder 1.0.  I'm referring to the current feature that is in the Delphi IDE.

In addition to this I'd like to see the capability to split the source code pane into multiple panes (by dragging a splitter bar a la Excel).  This may actually be more useful than the above solution.

Even with DOS (TP2 with Brief, BP with those funky character-mode windows) we could view multi files at once, or two views on one file etc.
Not being able to view/edit multi files, and see form and code at same time (ie: like in Delphi, VB, VS etc), makes C# Builder entirely unusable IMO. In fact, it's so incongruous that I'm still half expecting to find out that you actually *can* get multi edit/designer panes and I just haven't found out how. But it seems like there are a couple reports here on it so I guess it must be so.
So it gets all my votes because without this rudimentary feature there's no point.
