AppMaker Supports the Appearance Manager
Grantham, NH – January 2, 1998 – Bowers Development announced that it is
now shipping AppMaker CD #9. This latest release of AppMaker generates
source code and resources for Apple’s Appearance Manager. Other new
features include an enhanced programming model that does more of the
programming job automatically and the addition of Pascal to AppMaker’s
“Apple’s Appearance Manager makes your program look better and it also
makes your code simpler,” said Spec Bowers, President of Bowers
Development. “One of the nice things about Appearance is that it works not
only on Mac OS 8 but also on System 7.x thanks to Apple’s Appearance
Extension. Developers don’t have to worry that they might limit their
market to Mac OS 8 customers.”
AppMaker’s generated code helps programmers separate user interface code
from data engine code. Users define their data structures, define the user
interface, then connect user interface items to data items. AppMaker
generates code for UI items to Get and Set the values of data items.
Additionally, programmers can specify code fragments for AppMaker to insert
into the generated code.
Bowers Development will demonstrate the newest AppMaker in the Developer
Central booth at MacWorld Expo, San Francisco, January 6-9.
