Application Wizard

The Winteracter Application Wizard provides a quick start when creating new applications.

The Application Wizard is an important component of Winteracter's visual tool set, generating a substantial Winteracter program tailored to your requirements.

In just 5 simple dialogs, you describe how you want your application to look and the basic options you want to offer. The Wizard then generates the Fortran source code for your program. It also creates a corresponding resource file which is ready to load into the resource editor.

In fact, you can finish at any time, even if you haven't worked through all five dialogs (the Wizard will just fill in a set of default selections). As you work through the Wizard, a preview field shows how your application will appear. This will change as you select different options.

When the Wizard is invoked from our development environment, a WiDE project file is also created for the application's component files. This becomes the current WiDE project as soon as the five Wizard steps have been completed.

As of v10.0, a standalone version of the Application Wizard is also supplied, in addition to the version which is integrated into WiDE. The standalone version offers the same functionality to users who prefer to develop from the command line or in a third-party development environment.
