GUI Builder Gets Boost in Features and Functionality to Make Embedded Display Deployment Quicker and Easier
Altia, Inc. announces the release of Altia Design 11, the latest version of Altia’s user interface development editor. Altia Design 11 includes new features and enhancements to simplify and accelerate graphical user interface development.
Altia’s user interface software enables development teams to build complete user interface models. Teams can start with graphics created from scratch or imported from industry-standard design programs like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. With Altia, teams have the capability to create a completely custom user interface without hand-coding graphics. The Altia GUI can be connected to a variety of simulation tools or C code to create a complex, user-driven model which can be shared for management reviews and user testing — eliminating the need for costly hardware mockups. Once validated and approved, Altia customers automatically generate graphics code for their Altia GUI and deploy it directly to production hardware.
Altia Design 11, the centerpiece of Altia’s tool chain, offers a new interface with feature enhancements that will make GUI development quicker and easier. The enhanced editor includes a familiar ribbon and pane format and easy-to-use drop down menus for quick access to all Altia Design features. New features like Breadcrumb Trail, Canvas view and Global Find will give Altia users more information about their Altia design and make them more productive, faster. Additional updates to Altia Design include powerful new Animation editor features like Renamer, Scrubber and in-line string editing capability.
Kevin Dibble, Senior Director of Product Development, states, “When planning Altia Design, our goal was to streamline the user experience. We wanted to make our customers more productive and more successful when developing their Altia GUIs. Beta versions of our new release have been out in the field for several months. The feedback from our beta testers has been extremely positive. We have hit the mark with Altia Design 11 – and we can’t wait to get this new product into the hands of our entire customer base!”
