The WYSIWYG envronment allows you to fine-tune your designs to exactly meet your requirements, instantly showing each change as it is saved.

You can find much of the documentation for the indicator creator and its associated classes here on our website. Just follow the links above.

These classes are provided according to the terms of the license. If you need to know more about Virtual Machinery's licensing policy with regard to this product you should follow the 'Roadmap' link above. Remember that you can only distribute applications which use the Indicator classes if you have purchased a Distribution License. The jar that comes with the base development license puts out licensing details to the standard output - the distribution jar does not print anything during its use.

You can purchase the source code for the Indicator classes (but not, as yet, the creator) - full details are available on our web site (go to http://www.virtualmachinery.com/buyproducts.htm#INDICATOR)
