What is Visual Mobile Designer?

The NetBeans Visual Mobile Designer (VMD) is a graphical interface that enables you to design mobile applications using drag and drop components. The VMD allows you to define the application flow and design your GUI using the components supplied by the IDE or components you design yourself. The VMD contains many standard User Interface (UI) components that you can use to create applications such as Lists, Alerts, Forms and Images. It also includes custom components that simplify the creation of more complex features, such as Wait Screens, Splash Screens, Table Items and more.

A list of Visual Mobile Designer Palette components is available at the Visual Mobile Designer Palette Reference page.
