Abstract : The database-centric approach to graphic user interface (GUI) development, quickly and easily manages standardisation and modification of labels and look and feel of controls by keeping various control-creation data into the database. The runtime generation of controls provides the flexibility to control their creation and modification issues. This method freezes the application code once the development is over. The process of recompilation is eliminated when creation or modification of controls is done. Dynamic controls such as menus, label, text box, button, combo box, list box, group box, check box, radio button, tab control, spin button, tree control can be easily formed and controlled using this approach.
