Webcast: GeoEnviron – A Practical Look at Simplifying a PowerBuilder User Interface

The webcast will be held Thursday, December 8th at 1PM ET ( 10 AM PT ).

Geokon was honored with the 2010 ComputerWorld Honors Laureate for its GeoEnviron product for identifying, documenting, analyzing and planning environmental clean-up projects in less time and with greater accuracy. By taking full advantage of PowerBuilder’s DataWindow technology and time-saving coding features, the GeoEnviron team was able to revamp their user interface across 2,400 DataWindows in less than a week. In this webcast, Geokon's PowerBuilder Development Manager Michael Kramer will give us a guided tour through the award-winning GeoEnviron application, discuss the reasoning and process behind its design, quantify the cost-savings of using the PowerBuilder platform, and share the actual production code as he covers:

  • How to create a simplified, yet highly intuitive user experience using PowerBuilder for native Windows applications including how to integrate with 3rd party applications

  • How the user interface implements a modern look within an MDI frame using numerous coding techniques and design elements

  • DataWindow techniques from tool tips to Google® maps on a report to query-by-example

  • Developer tooling – setting up the PowerBuilder IDE, writing developer tools in PowerBuilder, and auto-converting UI using dwModify
