Abstract

Disclosed is a process for creating a User Interface (UI) frame based on a commercially available software development tool. As shown in the figure, the design environment 10 uses Visual BasicTM to develop a plurality of elements for the UI frame namely: graphics 32, text 34, behavior tables 36, and include files 38 shown in a product software environment 30. Custom components such as widgets 12, graphics 14, and Xerox fonts 16 are added to the design environment to help generate the UI frame. The designed UI frame is then processed by a dialog processing tool 20 that generates loadable files for the product software environment 30.
