mhatch writes "Advanced Table Extends Trolltech's Qt Framework.
Addresses multi-platform applications requiring
high performing spreadsheet-like GUIs.
Cambridge, Mass. - October 28, 2003 - Integrated Computer Solutions,
Inc. (ICS), the leading supplier of user interface development tools for
professionals, announced today the release of a Beta test version of
QicsTable, a sophisticated grid/table GUI object. With QicsTable, developers
can present large tables of information using a familiar spreadsheet-like
user interface paradigm. This makes their applications easier for end users
to understand and use. Built on the Qt framework from Trolltech AS,
applications written with QicsTable run without changes on Windows, MacOS,
Linux, and UNIX based systems.
QicsTable is being released for Beta testing under both the GNU Public
License (GPL) and a commercial beta test license. Source code is provided
under both licenses and developers will be able to build QicsTable in their
development environment. General availability of the production version is
scheduled for December 15th, 2003. The Beta version of QicsTable can be
downloaded from http://www.ics.com/qt .
"Early in our development effort, we purposely sought enterprise-level
applications with high performance computing requirements that challenged us
to build the best table available," said Mark Hatch, Chief Operating Officer
of ICS. "The result, QicsTable, is a 4th generation table for professionals
who need a reliable, high performance table that is flexible for the
developer while creating applications that users will love."
"Our Civil and Structural engineering software requires the ability to
present users with very large tables of data which they can manipulate and
analyze," said Dr. Roland Krause of Weidlinger Associates. "We were excited
to discover that QicsTable was designed to provide high performance access
and manipulation of very large datasets without compromising the usability
of the user interface."
"We are pleased that ICS continues to extend the range of solutions
addressed by Qt," stated Haavard Nord, Trolltech's CEO. "QicsTable provides
the high performance, flexible table that enterprise developers have been
requesting for Qt."
In addition to QicsTable, ICS also offers graphing and testing tools for Qt.
GraphPak is an object-oriented programming library that provides software
developers with a set of C++ objects to easily create charts or graphs that
aid in the visual presentation of technical and business data. KD Executor
is a noninvasive, advanced regression testing harness for Qt that uses the
actual application to record tests that can be later played back on the
target computer system to verify proper operation of the application.
Driven by the belief that the success of any software application depends on
the intuitiveness of the user interface, Integrated Computer Solutions,
Inc., The User Interface CompanyT, of Cambridge, MA, is the world's leading
provider of advanced user-interface development tools and services for
professional software engineers in the aerospace, petrochemical,
transportation, military, communications, entertainment, scientific, and
financial industries. Long recognized as the platform of choice for visually
developing mission-critical, high-performance Motif applications, ICS' BX
series of GUI builders has recently been expanded to provide a complete line
of tools that accelerate development of JavaT. ICS is the largest
independent supplier of add-on products to the Qt multi-platform framework
developed by Trolltech. Supporting the software development community since
1987, ICS also provides custom UI development services, custom UI component
development, training, consulting, and project porting and implementation
services. More information about ICS can be found at http://www.ics.com .
