GUI Creator for Ruby + Fox

Guide Contents

foxGUIb Start Page

foxGUIb lets the Ruby programmer create graphical user-interfaces quickly, using the Fox toolkit. Rather than write code to produce a GUI, it allows point-and-click creation. It produces Ruby code as its output.

Ruby, Fox, and foxGUIb are multi-platform, including Linux and Microsoft Windows

Here is a screenshot of it in use, showing:

  • the design (main) window at the front. Selected components appear on here as you work, and can be modified.
  • at the left of foxGUIb there is a component tree, showing nesting. Components can be copied and pasted.
  • In the centre, there is a palette allowing selection of a large range of FOX components.
  • at the right, properties of the selected component can be modified, and their effect seen immediately. You can also set many properties by directly manipulating the objects in the design window.
