Modern Web GUI

  • Intuitive Navigation: Improve screen navigation with mouse-driven functionalities such as clickable buttons, links, dropdown lists and tabs.
  • Easy Deployment: Enable access to all green screens as web pages by installing Presto on the IBM i server – no client installation saves you time and reduces deployment costs.

  • Drag-and-Drop Interface: Enhance your screen by adding modern elements like containers, tabs, images, charts, buttons and icons using the drag-and-drop GUI.
  • UI Elements & Google Maps: Transform input fields to date pickers, checkboxes or dropdown lists to speed up data entry. Add links to PDFs and integrate Google maps without code.
  • JavaScript Events: Customize your screens further – add JS events to hide/display elements when clicked, populate the command line with a button click, and more.

Site-Level Settings

Accelerate the modernization of your IBM i applications by applying the same settings to all your web-enabled green screens.

Data-driven UI Elements

  • Data-driven Inputs & Charts: Use SQL queries to populate UI elements like dropdown lists, autocompletes and charts with Db2 data.
