I think this wish is more important than any new dialog element, or
other change. I think that if we're going to see VDS grow it can't
have a small limit on API parameters (9) because just today I was
VERY disappointed when I was working on some code for days only
to find the only problem with it was that VDS wouldn't accept other
parameters. Unfortunately it means I have to throw away the whole project.

It makes me mad/very disappointed. Can we see this please please
please in the very near future? I don't think it would be that hard to
implement. Please? Crying or Very sad

I have come across this several times and got severely dissapointed.Crying Some major areas of API are totally out of reach for VDS due to this.
It is sad to say that now before each API example I confirm that there is no function that needs more than 8 parameters. If so I outright trash the project rather than wasting time on it.

I also wish that VDS strings have unicode support as many newer API's have only that option. And a more reasonable/simpler command to define an array and a structure
Even if providing parmeters to cover all API may mean large code overhead. But 12/13 I think should be reasonable for a nearby update since a sizeable chunk of important API need parameters between 9 - 13.

Atleast 40 more API work if parameters increased to 9.
Atleast 11 more API work if parameters increased to 10.
Atleast 12 more API work if parameters increased to 11.
Atleast 6 more API work if parameters increased to 12.
Atleast 8 more API work if parameters increased to 13.
Atleast 6 more API work if parameters increased to 17.
