Busted out yet another one.
CoronaSDK example of creating random bars that expand and contract. Good for fake dials or guages maybe? High tech. Includes nice cleanup method, and groups them all into a table for easy maintenance.
After watching the amazing Beeple’s presentation (Which is pure comedy gold, because he’s so humble and unassuming while dropping F bombs left and right) he inspired me to attack “Everydays” projects.

You want to just get on with your coding, so here it is! The FANCY drag and drop palette for Corona.

Download it free here!
If you’re interested in more functionality, like a scrollview to contain limitless images, and a cool directory scanner so you can load all your images contained in one directory, head on over to the Fancy Pallete page to purchase the code for a mere $5!
PS Oh, images are borrowed from http://androidarts.com/spaceconquest/gamedesign.htm , an amazingly talented guy!
