Introduction

 

logo4One of the most important aspect of any application is the Graphical User Interface, this being what the end user will interact with.  No matter how well designed or programmed your engine is; if the user experiences a dated, clunky, unresponsive, aesthetically displeasing interface they will choose your competitors product over yours i.e. when I see a badly programmed interface, I tend to think the engine is badly coded too.

 

ProGUI takes the headache away from creating professional silky smooth user interfaces for your applications by the use of simple, easy commands giving your program professional GUI components and features found in many commercial applications.
