Prominare Designer (PD) lets you design graphical applications and user interfaces for 16- and 32-bit OS/2, Windows NT and Windows 3.1, that includes menus, accelerators, strings, dialogues, custom resources and a help table. Once you have completed the visual design of your application Prominare Designer creates resource files and C/C++ source code for handling of those. PD also handles testing of individual windows or dialogues including interlinks, creation of MMPM/2 and Pen for OS/2 controls and importing of existing OS/2 and Windows 3.1 .RES files with automatic conversion of bitmaps, icons, and cursors to OS/2.
