What is a...
Property - An attribute of the particular control, ie it's width, height, left (x), top (y) caption/text, color... Use: IE to set an editbox's text Edit1.Text='Hi!'.
Method - A method is used to do something more in-depth in code. Ex: Adding a tab, setting the parent handle or deleting a control. Use: For example to move the webbrowser control into GM you must set it's parent handle to that of GM, ie: EmbeddedWB1.SetParent(window_handle()).
Event - Function executed when something happens, ie clicking a button executes the OnClick event. Use: For example to emulate something such as showing the user the RAM usage with GM.
