Hi all, 

This is really a nice project for autoit. This gui designer is really awesome. What makes it different is, that this program will manipulate a gui from code and manipulate code from gui. Ofcourse koda will do it but not this much efficiently. In koda, we need to copy the gui region to change the gui again. But in this program, if we need to change an already designed gui, we can simply open the file within this program and do our changes. The code will be changed without any problem. That's good feature. But the main problem of this program is that this is not have some essential good ide features like automatic indentation, automatic brace insertion, automatic end keyword filling.  The author of this program is not in online since 2014 september. But he/she published the source code in this post. So if somebody come to ‌renovate this program, then it will be a very big help to autoit and all newcomers. 

Some features we need to make is;

1. Add more fonts to this program. Now, it have few fonts.

2. Add more clarity to the property section.

3. Add automatic code completion.

4. Add an option to crate projects and temporary files. (temp files are for quick testing)

This is the link.

I don't get it. Isn't this "AutoIt Projects and Collaboration" subforum?

@kcvinu if I misread your OP my apologies, serves me right for skimming topics. :>  I read it more as "someone should really do this" rather than "let's get a team together and make it happen"

@JLogan3o13 . I have downloaded the source code of this program. It's somewhere in the middle of  the whole 11 page topic. As you said, if we form a team and develop it as a complete program, then it will be an asset for autoit.

your question: "Is it possible to renovate this program?"

my question: "is it possible you use a meaningful subject line?"

for example:
instead of referring to "the program" - why don't you refer to the "form builder" (from topic 46283)?

PS:
also see the "GUI designer" summary thread: topic 167013

@kcvinu I recommend checking out ISN AutoIT Studio.

@Kaimberex ,

I know, and i have it. ISN is a very good program but it has it's own limitations. Why did i mentiond FormBuilder because, it's an abandond project and if somebody willing to volunteer, we can make it a verygood feature rich IDE.
