Microchip Announces Graphical User Interface Composer Tool for MPLAB Harmony

CHANDLER, AZ -- Microchip Technology Inc. announces the MPLAB Harmony Graphics Composer (MHGC), a modern and flexible graphical user interface (GUI) composer tool. MHGC is a free development tool for developing GUIs for all PIC32 microcontrollers through Microchip's Harmony Configurator and MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE). The software allows anyone to create branded content using the Harmony Graphics Library, in conjunction with their custom assets, to create GUIs in a What-You-See-is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) design model, without complex and cumbersome coding.

MPLAB Harmony Graphics Composer takes care of all configuration requirements as well as generating all source code needed for a professional-looking GUI. Users can easily import images and fonts and add them into projects via MHGC's intuitive, user-friendly interface. The tool gives the user the ability to add, delete, move, scale and configure objects within the application. Objects can be interactive, including sliders, dials and buttons without the developer needing to understand graphics code.
