I'm looking for a way to make a program with the style of AS/400 menus.

I've looked at text-based UI libraries (lanterna) but they don't seem to be able to do what I'm looking for.

Ideally, I would like functionality that is on-par or at least as close as I could come to replicating an AS/400 menu.

enter image description here

  • Your question is only about menus? No other UI elements such as buttons/etc? – Nicolas Raoul Jun 1 '19 at 4:55
  • @NicolasRaoul There really isn't much in the way of buttons and such in AS/400 software. Here is a screenshot of what I'm talking about Menu and Entry Page – user2742693 Jun 1 '19 at 19:17
  • Understood! You only want the menu, or also the entry page? – Nicolas Raoul Jun 2 '19 at 11:07
  • Sort of both, I'm looking for a library that can serve up text-based GUI's to a console. I would like to make an application that mimics the look of the provided pictures but can also be served up over a console connection. – user2742693 Jun 2 '19 at 17:46
