Introduction

IETeGUI is a powerful extension to the CA Gen GUI runtime that enables you to easily and rapidly:

This is done in 3 very simple steps:

1) Add a NOTE statement to your procedure step action diagram. This can be easily added using the Gen toolset or with the IETeGUI Editor. The Editor can also automatically enhance multiple list boxes in one go to make it very easy to convert an existing application.

2) Generate and Install the code from the toolset or CSE. At build time, the hooks to the IETeGUI runtime are automatically added to the generated code.

3) Deploy your application together with the IETeGUI runtime DLL.
