Some Tips for ForeUI Simulation

In ForeUI, we can define the behavior of elements and run the simulation in web browser.  Here are some tips about running the simulation:

If you have defined multiple pages in a plot, you can use “Page Up” and “Page Down” key to switch the pages, even if you havn’t defined any behavior of elements.

If you are running ForeUI in Windows VISTA and your are not using an administrator account, you may meet a “Page Not Found” error in your web browser when launching the simulation.  That’s because ForeUI need the right to create a folder for storing DHTML files.  The workaround is to run ForeUI in administrator account, or to assign the right to ForeUI application.

If you meet any problem in using ForeUI, please feel free to contact us, we are making an FAQ page for ForeUI.

ForeUI Online Demo Available!


From now on, ForeUI has its online demo! That means you don’t have to download and install the package if you just want to take a tour;   You can just click the link to launch the demo and try all features of ForeUI.

Actually the online demo is a Java applet, usually your browser already has its running environment.  In case your browser does not support Java, you can try this link, it will auto-detect and install the Java environment for you.

The online demo has almost 100% the same features than the native installation, except the URL visiting:   In native installation, if ForeUI need to visit a URL, it will bring up a browser window and browse the URL in it;  In online demo, when ForeUI try to visit a URL, it will pop up a small window, showing the target URL and allow you to copy the URL to the clipboard, which can help you to paste it to your browser.


Another difference between online demo and native installation is the prototype examples:  the native installation include some interesting examples and customzied elements;  the online demo has no example though.  We may provide a download site for the example resource latter.
