A Graphical User Interface Builder for Tk

Stephen A. Uhler

Sun Microsystems Laboratories


I will demonstrate a prototype graphical user interface builder for Tk that provides a direct manipu- lation interface for building, editing and testing Tk applications. A novel dynamic "smart-grid" combines the familiarity of a spreadsheet-like WYSIWYG inter- face, with the powerful constraint based geometry management capabilities of Tk to provide automatic widget alignment, distribution, and resize management capabilities.
