What is the application builder?
The application builder is very strong and usable program, that draws
out the maximum ability of WideStudio, which is an integrated
development environment (IDE) for GUI applications. Application
developers are released from complicated implementations of GUI
applications by using the application builder of the WideStudio.
Specification of the application is as follows.
The following shows the functions of application builder, and structure
of the files.
- Making and managing the application window
Making the application window with interactive operations,
and their management is done automatically.
- Implementation with the event procedure
Minimum coding of applications by an event driven system.
Developers prepare the event procedure and set them to the
- Properties of the objects
Developers can modify the properties of the objects with
- Informations of the application
Developers can refer the objects (the instances) and the
event procedures, their properties, and other information by
the application builder.
- Management as project
Management of application window files and event procedure
files, is part of the environment for development and
building by project unit.
- Automatic building of the application
It generates the makefile and c++ source codes of the
application window, compiles and links them, and creates the
- Executing and debugging of the application
It executes and debugs the built application.
- Supporting of the class application window
application window is used to build the application window as
a new c++ class of the WideStudio. The application builder
generates the class library by integrating the classes of the
WideStudio, and makes it possible to use it from other
- Support of the stored application window
The application builder is used to store whole or part of the
application window to a file. It is also possible that
applications can load it dynamically and share it while they
are running. Treating objects as stored application windows
is effective for applications which display some maps,
drawings, and wiring diagrams.
