Description

This paper will describe GUIKit, a new Mathematica application that significantly simplifies the building of Graphical User Interface applications that are fully integrated with Mathematica. Before GUIKit, many users of Mathematica would use the Java toolkit J/Link to build user interfaces. GUIKit simplifies this process by taking care of many of the details of construction and graphical layout that often complicate user interface programming. GUIKit also allows a programmer to build user interfaces with no knowledge of Java, since it requires only a knowledge of Mathematica. In addition, it provides a reusable deployment model that allows programmers to add interface definitions into their existing Mathematica applications. These are all features that should appeal to attendees of IMS.
