  • Sale - DDT Utility Visual Designer - only $14.95

    From May 1, 2008 to May 5, 2008 I am offering my
    EZGUI Utility Dialog Designer 4.01 for an amazingly low price of
    only $14.95 (US). This is almost half the original price (which is $29).

    $29 was a great deal.

    $14.95 is an amazing deal!

    This is no toy designer. It is powerful designer which supports many advanced features, such as custom controls (visually).

    To learn more about this designer read these posts:

    (Note: Current version of designer may be slightly different than the screenshots posted in the above thread)

    There already has been a good number of orders at the $29 price, but at this price everyone can afford it. Don't let this one go by.

    If you want to order quickly, you can skip all the web pages on my web site and go straight to the order page using this url:

    This is a great price on a very powerful tool.

    Don't under estimate the power of the Utility Designer.

    There are a number of ways to push the designer beyond its original intent (to build simple utility apps).

    One way is to use the custom control object. You can easily create control definition files in any text editor (ie. notepad) to add any of the common controls you want or even third party controls like EGrid.

    The library code provides an Event engine, so coding is much easier and more readable. Two interesting events are:


    %EZ_Loading occurs before the control is created and there are library routines which can be called to modify the controls creation parameters.

    %EZ_Loaded occurs right after the control is created. This allows you to add code which will be executed immediately after the control is created (ie. adding buttons to a toolbar).

    The Library code was designed so you can add your own events, via a event hook routine which you can define in an include file. This allows you to expand the event engine using your own code.

    Lastly, the Designer supports code plugins. When the designer generates code, it can call a code plugin (which is a DLL you can write using PB) and passes the generated code to the plugin. The plugin then can modify the code and change it, before the designer passes the code to your favorite code editor.

    Another amazing feature is the Designers ability to use any external code editor (as long as it is compatible). The PB IDE works great and so does JellyFish.

    The Designer uses a proprietary "Smart Parser" which actually rewrites your code, every time it is regenerated to handle any changes to the GUI (forms) you have made. Some routines are considered protected and only the designer may edit them, while others are user editable.

    Best of all, where can buy any decent Visual Designer for less than $15 ?

    You don't have to phase out any existing Visual tools you are using. Just consider it a compliment to them. Use it for the quick utility apps you want to write or for testing code quickly. Use it for prototyping.

    For this price you can't go wrong.
