  • The user interface of SimLab Composer has been crafted in a way that achieves high usability if compared with other software products.
  • Well-defined and easy to follow workflow.
  • It makes you easily figure out how the application works and where to go without getting confused and frustrated, it consists of:
    • A vertical bar, which is called the Workbenches Bar.
    • A task ribbon, in which each workbench has its own.
    • Related panels that depend on context
  • We made it familiar to Microsoft Office user interface (i.e. tabbed interface integration, such as ribbon and panels).
  • The high quality programming behind the application and the high-end polishing for the UI make it load quickly, which improves your experience and allows you to wok fast.
  • It provides some form of feedback through toggle buttons, progress bars, messages area, enabled and disabled states for buttons, spinning wheel.
  • You will look forward to using it making the experience truly satisfying.
  • It saves you from frequent mistakes that will be handled to quickly undo your last actions.
  • The following are some specifications of our UI:
    • Simple and task-driven workbenches.
    • Drag-and-drop support is found in SimLab Composer modern GUI, which is a fast and easy-to-learn technique that increases usability where the user selects a virtual object by "grabbing" it and dragging it to a different location or onto another virtual object invoking different actions.
    • Customizable UI, with possibility to resize views and panels, resize floating panels, dock a floating UI element, hide or display a panel, reset window to default layout, docking and undocking panels.
    • SimLab Composer is a context menu free; that appears upon user interactions (e.g. a right-click mouse operation) to display repeated actions related to selected object, state, or context to avoid additional complexity and repetition.
    • Meaningful tooltips that describe and explain buttons directly when you hover over them.
