APLXTM GUI Programming
Cross-platform APL GUI applications
Under APLX, the APL developer has access to a rich set of user-interface objects using built-in System Classes (or the Quad-
In order to assist in application migration, this implementation is designed for upwards compatibility with MicroAPL's previous Macintosh APL, and is similar to the implementation in APL+Win. Enhancements include better geometry management (no need for tedious 'onResize' event handling!), and improved access to commonly-used facilities such as file-open and color-selection dialogs.
Except for a few controls where the underlying operating system does not provide an equivalent capability, this functionality operates cross-platform. Your APL workspace developed using APLX for Windows will run with little or no change under Linux or under Mac OS X.
