In this paper we present a user interface development system which is used to define default and application specific user interfaces to the KIWIS system. This is achieved by using the underlying object-oriented language (LOCO) with features such as inheritance to define a consistent set of graphical object classes that can be used to attach a tailor-made external representation to objects and/or classes. In addition, using the same tools, it becomes a simple matter to define general purpose browsing and manipulation tools which otherwise would have to be developed seperately.
