Dynamic Windows Interface Builder is a simple application for creating user interfaces for application built using the Dynamic Windows library.

When you start the application you are presented with the main window, which consists of a toolbar with icons representing every type of control available to the application and an empty properties inspector window which will be filled when a widget is selected.

Main window with context menu.

Clicking the icons on the toolbar will create widgets in the tree that represents the layout of windows. Clicking Window Window will create a new top-level window entry regardless of what is selected in the tree. You can only click Menu Menu when a Window Window or another Menu Menu is selected. You can only click Notebook Page Notebook Page when a Notebook Notebook or Notebook Page Notebook Page is selected. Most other items will be created as a child of the selected widget if the widget is packable (Window Window, Box Box, or Notebook Page Notebook Page) or as a sibling of the currently selected item.
