The graphic cells are constructed by the user and can integrate all the Swing components available, like buttons, labels, as well as the associated look and feel.


  • Simple rapid definition of graphic views of cells;
  • Proposal of a model cell by default;
  • Ability to easily define a layout;
  • Tools available for moving/resizing/selecting by group;
