Welcome to ArtBase
Give your data a new look!
With ArtBase you transform your 'dry' tables into an audiovisual experience.
It sorts your tables and filters them recursively.
That's how databases make fun.
Continue to use your database program. ArtBase is quite flexible and imports tables from nearly all databas
and spreadsheet programs.
Let your creativity run wild. ArtBase offers you a maximum of freedom in designing your masks.
Whether it be data fields, frames, headers or backgrounds,
everything is freely configurable.
Move fields like icons. Create new fields such as new directories. Configure everything through MUI-windows.
ArtBase is as intuitive as your Amiga!
Whether a comprehensive manual, online help, UNDO function or the alternative operation by keyboard. ArtBase supports
you in your designing process.
Create your own designs that you transmit to other projects or use one of the many pre-made
designs to give your mask a completely new look.
ArtBase is a program , with which you are able to create freely
configurable masks for your tables and databases.
Artbase was developed under the following premises.
Optimal import functionality
The user shall be able to use his existing tables or databases.
ArtBase therefore uses the CSV-format to import the data. This format
is supported by most spreadsheet programs and databases. Excel,
OpenOffice, TurboCalc, Bento or Datamat for example are able to
export their data in the CSV-format. As a separator between the data
cells, the comma, the semicolon, the high bar and the tab will be
supported to achieve the highest possible compatibility. Also data
cells with multiple lines from e.g. OpenOffice are correctly imported
and displayed by ArtBase.
Free design possibilities
ArtBase has been developed in a way, that you are not limited in any
way when designing your masks. So you are able to:
Freely place and change size of every data field.
Assign to every field its own font and font-size.
Set individual parameters for color, color gradient, transparancy and
frames for every field.
Put freely configurable and positionable headings onto every field.
Freely design the background through color, color gradients, textures
ArtBase uses its own system, to display the largest possible number of
field types. So you can display the following types of data with
Short texts will be displayed as single lines in one field.
Long texts will be displayed as multiple lines in one field.
Links to texts can be embedded into the table and will be displayed as
If there is a path information to a picture, the picture will be
displayed in the mask.
If there is a path information to a piece of music, the songs can be
played from inside ArtBase.
Slideshows can be played with ArtBase in the easiest way.
Checkmarks are supported by ArtBase.
E-mail and URL-addresses are supported by ArtBase.
All these features make ArtBase a mighty tool for the audiovisual
depiction of your tables.
ArtBase was originally developed for game lists. Due to its open
structure it is, however, equally well endowed for the depiction of
other tables, like f.e. music collections, movie databases, recipe
collections or other tables.
