Chicago, IL – May 15 – BCD Software LLC, a Quadrant Software company and an IBM i industry leader for 40 years, has announced the upcoming release of Presto 6.5, their rapid green screen and new RPG application modernization tool. This release includes a new visual skin editor for modifying Presto skins in the Visual Editor. Skins control the overall style (e.g. colours and logo) of Presto-modernized green screens.

"Today's IBM i programmers are asked to do more with less and it's our goal to help them improve business processes as efficiently as possible," says Marcel Sarrasin, Quadrant's VP of Corporate Marketing. "Presto's skins have always been completely customizable and we've made it easier to modify them. The new skin editor in version 6.5 will make it much quicker for developers to apply changes to their Presto skin, all without coding any HTML or CSS."

How the Visual Skin Editor Works

After installing Presto, you can choose a Presto skin and use it as a starting point to create a custom skin that matches your organization's look. Presto's new skin editor, which is located in the Presto Designer, enables you to quickly select preset color themes and/or customize the color of your function keys, headers and subfiles. You can also easily update the logo. All of these changes are applied on a global level without requiring you to access the HTML or CSS.

Presto is the fastest way to give your existing green screens and new RPG programs a modern web GUI that's accessible from browsers on PCs and mobile devices. Whether you use the 5250 datastream or RPG Open Access (OA), Presto gives you the most flexibility to add new functionality.
