Widget Factory 5 released!


Tristan Ward from Infosemantics have released the latest version of Widget Factory. Widget Factory is an API that is extremely helpful when developing Widget for Adobe Captivate 4 and Adobe Captivate 5.

The new version of Widget Factory is now fully compatible with Adobe Captivate 5 but also contains a bundle of great features that will speed up the widget development process tremendously. Furthermore the API will allow you to make Adobe Captivate Widgets that are compatible with Adobe Captivate 4 and Adobe Captivate 5 in the same development process due to the new “Captivate version checking” capability.

If you plan on developing Adobe Captivate Widgets on your own I highly recommend that you download the Widget Factory 5 API as soon as possible.

You can download the API here.

Extensive documentation on how to use the API can be found here.



  1. so the first thing the documentation tells you to do is read the read me file which ISN’T PART OF THE DOWNLOADED FILES AFTER YOU EXTRACT THEM. oy.

  2. He he I guess he forgot that file ;o)

    Essentially all you need to know is found in the documentation link above and I suspect that a “read me” file would simply contain instructions on how to set up Widget Factory on your machine.
