Users of my Serial_LCD Library Suite already know 4D Systems, the maker of the screens on which my Serial_LCD library runs.

4D Systems has just released a major update of its IDE Workshop with an outstanding feature: ViSi-Genie.

ViSi-Genie allows to build a professional-looking graphic user interface very easily.

It only requires to drag-and-drop elements, including buttons, sliders or more elaborate ones, and define the events associated, like pressing a button or moving the cursor on a slide-bar.

Read my review with an example completed in just a couple of minutes!

What I really wish you could do with the 4D displays is send up new images over serial. It seems like it can be done, but you would have to roll your own code.
