Screen Shapes and Controls Help

                                                                 and Controls


You can use Screen Shapes and Controls to:

Add as many existing or custom defined shapes on your screen as you want to create scenes.

Move your shape easily using the Scene Controller. There is virtually unlimited space you can use to move your scenes through. You are not limited to the display size. Create scene snapshot at a touch of a button (literally). The snapshot is saved in PNG format (to have transparency) and put on your Desktop.

Save your scenes for later retrieval and publish your scenes locally or on the Internet so you can easily access/browse them later.

Provides an easy way to show customers how a proposed application or website will look and behave, without the need for any technical expertise or programming. Transform your visions into working prototypes.

Browse to any web site to retrieve images which you can add easily on (a) rectangle shape(s). Then filter the images, draw on them, rotate them, put them on your scenes, or save them to your hard drive.

Create custom shapes using points, curves, beziers, ellipses and arcs.

View a current snapshot of your scene using the "Full Map" feature/button.

Set transparency level for a shape, add a background image, set it's size, draw something on it then set it to be click-throughable and here is a way to help you with your 3D modelling work.

Add text to any shape and set it's font, font size and color.

Take a snapshot from under a shape considering that shape's transparency and region.

Use either the Quick Color Picker or the integrated Color Picker to change the background color of a shape.

Draw on shapes using differen brush sizes and different gradients.

Add Windows Forms controls to any of your shape thus creating mockups. Available Windows Forms controls are: Button, CheckBox, RadioButton, ComboBox, DateTimePicker, HScrollBar, Label, LinkLabel, ProgressBar, TextBox, NumericUpDown, RichTextBox, ListBox, PictureBox, TabControl, GroupBox, Panel, CheckedListBox, Calendar and TreeView.

Load an image as the background image for a shape and have it duplicated automatically for each of the selected image filters available. Or use any of the existing (128) image filters to filter an image.

Duplicate any shape.

Existing shapes are circle (empty circle), rectangle (empty rectangle), rhombus (empty rhombus), triangle and empty triangle (up/down/left/right), parallelogram (up/down/left/right), trapezoid (up/down/left/right), vertical lines and horizontal lines.
