Good day -

I'm a partner in a small interaction design shop in San Francisco. I'm
currently doing all prototype work as HTML (using Dreamweaver) which works
great for low- and medium-fidelity deliverables, and plan on continuing
using HTML.

My clients, mostly startups, have been requesting more logic-based
functionality in prototypes recently. It looks like Axure RP
(http://www.axure.com) might be appropriate for me - spits out HTML, allows
logic-based functions, affordable - but I'm not getting a great sense of the
capabilities from the demo or online help and support. That is partly my
fault, I realize. J

I envision creating the logic in Axure, compiling it, then editing it in
Dreamweaver, since the output is HTML. I really can't tell yet if that's a
realistic proposition, though.

If any of you have experience with this product, I'd greatly appreciate
hearing your two (or ten) cents about it, especially related to
incorporating the output with other applications.

Thanks,

Greg Jagiello

i've used it a bit. i never looked closely at the HTML it generates. if you
can get away with using its output great, but i suspect it may not really be
usable for production code. however, i could be wrong.

Axure can generate WinHelp output (.CHM files) with the latest 4.4 release
and if the original interactivity is structured the right way, it could
exceed many tools used for Help authoring.

it's less suitable for demos. you're better off using a dedicated tool like
Captivate (formerly RoboDemo) or even Camtasia for that.

Our Usability team hear at DePaul Univercity uses
Axure, and it works great, BUT to my knowledge there
are no logic statements available. You can make
various cases when you click on a button or use
Dynamic panels to show various states when you click a
button.
