Arrow New SimpleUI Frame Designer

Hey Community,

I've created some AddOns (just trying some ideas , no real projects ) and every time the creation of the Frames are one of the most timeconsuming and annoying parts of creating an AddOn.

So I decided to make a "Simple" designer where I can add UI Elements to a Frame in the designer and if I'am done moving and scaling the UI parts, I want to create the code wich I can add to my .lua !

And this is what SimpleUI does, it lets you add, move, scale and size UI Elements and creates the code with name, text, size and anchor points!

Endr.jpg

The Black Frame in the middle is the designer Frame wichs code is generated too at the end and all UI Elements are childs of that Frame!
The outer Frame is the MainFrame where all Designer Buttons and Frames are added to.

I created this AddOn for my own purpose!
The functionality isn't 100% but i'am working on it!

So Anyone who is interested: Pre-Realease
The Git: Git-Hub

There will be Updates in the near future!

Functions:
- Add Button
- Add EditBox
- Add FontString
- Add DropDownMenu
- Add CheckBox
- Add Sub-Frame
- Add Icon
- Create Code
- Modify UI Elements

What I want to change:
- Let the user set the Backdrop easier
- Let the user set background images of the UI Element
- User can change more attributes
- Add UI Elements to Groups

What I'am working on:
- Let the user modify more attributes of the UI Element
- Add Project Handling (Save/Load Projects)
- Improving Structure

Freshly developed for WoD [6.0.3]

I hope to see a video on Youtube of your add-on in use so I can get a better understanding on what and how it all works. I'm very interested in using it but I already have kgpanels, moveanything, weakauras2. So I'm not sure if it will interfere with the other add-on's or not. I'm not a big fan of kgPanels because of the problems it has been giving me lately but I have most of my U.I setup with it. If it's better then kgPanels though I'm willing to get away from it and slowly change it over to Release v1.4

Those addons you mentioned are user addons to customize your UI.
This is a developer tool for making other addons.

There's no replacing one with the other.

He's been using kgPanels and WeakAuras as "developer tools."
