Drag-and-drop your way to modern IBM i applications

Patented Visual Designer Tool for IBM i

In the past, if an RPG programmer was to learn about Web or Mobile application development, it may have taken years to become fully proficient. But with Profound Logic's Visual Designer, all of that changes!

The Visual Designer is a patented graphical development environment that allows anyone to quickly create professional looking browser interfaces in a point-and-click, drag-and-drop manner. There's no longer any need to learn HTML, CSS or JavaScript in order to produce top-quality Web and mobile applications.  


The Profound UI Visual Designer installs with hundreds of cross-browser rich widgets, including:

  • Subfile grids

  • Intelligent charts

  • Tabbed panels

  • Maps

  • Customizable themes, including buttons, fonts and colors

  • Mobile device layouts

RPG and Node.js

The Profound UI Visual Designer approaches development in a way that is intuitive to the RPG developer, including the use of field binding to the source RPG program and record formats.

Developers can also utilize the Visual Designer for Node.js and take advantage of tools and features specific to development projects in those languages. The RPG Designer comes standard with Profound UI.  Profound.js customers can access the Node.js version of the Visual Designer module in Profound UI.
