See A Screen Shot?

Shot 1 -- This screen shots shows the 3 basic windows in BX PRO along with an user interface being developed.
Shot 2 -- BX PRO provides two types of palettes. The long vertical one is the traditional palette with clickable folders to expand and/or collapse widget sets. The tabbed palette on the right is more efficient in its use of screen real estate at the cost of extra clicks to access different widget sets.
Shot 3 --- BX PRO is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) visual design tool. The user interface under development on the bottom of the screen shot is built from actual instantiations of the widgets used in the user interface design.
