G4P & GUI Builder new versions available.

G4P V4.1 and GUI Builder V4.2 are now available.

G4P now supports animated icons for GButton, Glabel, GCheckbox and GOption controls. Also the icon can be positioned above or below the text in addition to the existing left and right sides.

The website has guides for Positioning icons and Creating animated Icons

GUI Builder has been updated for G4P 4.1 so it can set the new icon positions. Animated icons have to be created separately and added after the GUI has been created. NOTE: GUIs created with earlier versions of GUI Builder can not be opened with this version. Make sure you finish any existing GUIs before upgrading.



  • How to convert GUI Builder V4.1 to GUI Builder V4.2 ? G4P V4.05 to G4P V4.1 ?

  • GUI Builder uses Java Serialisation to store the GUI design. It is a fast way to save complex data in object format but means incompatibility between versions so no conversion is possible.

    In GUI Bulider if the minor version number changes it is incompatible.

    So there is no conversion between 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2

    Previous releases include 2.4, 2.4.1 and 2.4.2 and changes in the point version number mean that GUIs created with 2.4 or 2.4.1 were editable by 2.4.2

    So if you have a GUI created with a version before 4.2 that you need to edit, the only solution is to install the matching GUI Builder. In most cases this is not a problem as the user creates the GUI and once the sketch is complete never needs to edit the GUI again.

  • 1) Thank you.

    2) Could be nice to be able to reuse old GUIs...
