Uniface IDE

The Uniface IDE is an integrated collection of tools for building and integrating the components and libraries required for Uniface web, desktop, and mobile applications. Application definitions that are created with the Uniface IDE are stored in the Repository, an SQL-enabled database.

Use the Uniface Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to create development objects, and build them into deployable applications.

Uniface IDE: Component Editor

  1.  Header—use the facilities at the top of the window to find and navigate to your development objects, and import definitions from XML files.
  2.  Editors—each main development object is opened in its own editor tab. You can have multiple objects open at one time and easily switch between them. Panes in the editor can be resized.
  3.  Worksheets—collection of tools tailored to completing a specific editing activity. Each worksheet contains a Resource Browser on the left, a Properties Inspector (or Compiled Module Inspector) on the right, and a worksheet editor in the middle.
  4.  Resource Browser—templates, objects, and code snippets that you can insert into the current object.
  5.  Worksheet editor—the main editor of the worksheet, such as the Structure Editor, Script Editor, or Layout Editor, and so on.
  6.  Properties Inspector—properties of the development object selected in the worksheet editor.
  7.  Output tabs—use the tabs at the bottom of the window to view messages and compiler output.

To provide extra work area, especially if you are working with large monitors or dual monitors, you can open a second window, known as the Alternative Window.
