Graphics Builder: Editing and Creating New Widgets

GLG Graphics BuilderAny GLG Widget is simply a drawing that may be loaded into any GLG application using one of the provided GLG Libraries (Java, C/C++/C#, etc.) and animated with real-time data.

The GLG Graphics Builder is a graphical editor for editing widgets as well as creating new widgets. Any widget drawing may be loaded into the GLG Graphics Builder to customize the widget by editing its resources. A modified widget drawing may be saved into a file to create a custom version of the widget.

The Graphics Builder's Run mode may be used to prototype a widget's run-time behavior by animating it with either simulated or real data. The run command provides numerous data prototyping options.

New custom widgets
may be created from scratch using the Builder and added to the Builder's palettes. The Graphics Builder may also be used to create elaborate dashboards which combine several graph, meter and dial widgets in one drawing.
