Extron GUI Designer is a software application used for the design, creation, and maintenance of Extron TouchLink® Pro user interfaces. Begin with ready-to-use design templates and resource kits, or start from scratch and build your own layout using our comprehensive software. The available design elements are fully customizable and matched carefully to popular AV system applications. In many cases, all the input sources, display control, and environmental settings are already in place. These resources are fully developed and include complete, detailed documentation.

Ready-to-use Templates and Resource Kits

GUI Designer includes ready-to-use templates for single display rooms, dual display rooms, divisible rooms, multi-image systems, and videoconference suites that can be used for TouchLink Pro touchpanels, the TouchLink Interface, the Extron Control App, and Extron Control for Web. Since system designs vary, our templates can be customized to suit the specific needs of any application. The GUI Designer design environment enables a wide variety of design choices for buttons, colors, logos, font styles, and more.

Start From Scratch and Design Your Own Layout

A wide array of design options enable users to develop their own touchscreen layouts to meet almost any system requirement. The GUI Designer resource library of shapes, graphics, and fonts provide a wide variety of choices for design of pages and popups to provide transport controls, multi-state buttons, 3D effects, video windows, labels, and more. In addition, users can import their own images and font files into GUI Designer and use the resource management tool to provide further customization capabilities. The Designer Window displays the layout design in progress, so the changes can be seen while the customization occurs.

Use Dynamic Scaling to Speed up Your Design Process

The Dynamic Scaling feature allows easy conversion of GUI designs between different size touchpanels. This simplifies GUI implementation throughout a project by allowing easy scalability between TouchLink Pro touchpanel models and the TouchLink Interface.

Prepare User Interface for Configuration

Once the touchscreen layout design is completed, the process for uploading the design files to a Pro platform interface is simple. GUI Designer provides a file for use with Global Configurator® Plus or Professional, which, in turn, connects to the interface over the network for uploading the layout project data.
