Quotation Flatscher, Rony G. 2018. Anatomy of a GUI (Graphical User Interface) Application for Rexx Programmers. The 2018 International RexxLA Symposium, Aruba, Dutch West Indies, Netherlands, 25.03.-29.03.




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.
