Create mockup non web programs.

Hi all,
Do you know any mockup tools?

Right now, i create mockup programs by using Visual basic 6.
But VB6 is more than that, i feel it's overkill. You just want to create mockups, but you use VB6, i feel that's ridiculous.
I need a new mockup tool.

The things/commands i need are...
  1) pop form/window
  2) tables (like MS Excel)

i create a button and when i press it, i want another window to open. Inside that new window is a similar button.

this happens...
window
        pic
        button (show window2)
window2
        pic
        window3
                pic
                 window4
                button
        button( show window4)

tables...
i need to enter actual create static tabular data. not at run time, only at design time. nothing gets pulled out of database, all data is entered like in excel.

Before i write thousands of lines of code, i want to create a mockup program. That way, the client can see how the entire program will look like.

Have you looked into Balsamiq's Mockups program?

There's a web demo if you follow the above link; might be for you.

hi jornak,

i want to create a button, and when you click on it, it popups another window.
can balsamiq do that?

I see. I still fail to see the utility of such a program. You already know VB6 and it's easy to make buttons in VB6 that pop up other windows. Also, it looks exactly like it will in the finished product so the user doesn't see one thing and get another.
I really would not expect mock-ups to be faster to create using any other system.

If that still is what you want to do, then I will bow out of the discussion since I have never used any such tool.
