Anatomy of a GUI (Graphical User Interface) Application for Rexx Programmers

Activity: Talk or presentationScience to science


Creating for the first time GUI (graphical user interface) applications is an endeavor that can be most challenging. This article introduces the general concepts of GUIs and the need to interact with GUI elements only on the so called "GUI thread". The
concepts pertain to GUI applications written for Windows, Linux and MacOS alike.

Using Java libraries for creating Rexx GUI applications makes these Rexx GUI
applications totally platform independent. Taking advantage of BSF4ooRexx even
the powerful JavaFX GUI libraries can be exploited by pure Rexx, allowing Rexx
programmers to create the most demanding and complex GUI applications in an
unparalleled easiness in an astonishing short period of time.

The introduced GUI concepts will be demonstrated with short nutshell examples
exploiting the JavaFX GUI libraries, empowering the Rexx programmers with the ability to create stable and error free GUI applications in Rexx.
