Hiya all! I've spent a good 10+ hours surfing round and trying diffrent things, and have got nowhere! What I'm after is a way of Rapidly developing a WIN32 GUI, nothing exterm, Window, couple of Sub-window, menus, buttons, listboxs, dialog boxs etc. So I looked at .Net, might be nice but I only have VC6 so can't. MFC, not even an option! wxWidgets to complex, FXRudy is script not C/C++ What i'd like is something simple, a bit like GLUI but for WIN32 not GL So i'm after so inspration! Thanks, Rob:-D EDIT: I'd like to use C/C++ so I can intigrate code I've allready written. I have created most of the guts, just need a GUI that i can then link with my existing code base.

So wait, what langauge are you using? You mentioned .Net might fit your needs, then flew right over to C++. C++ never comes to my mind as being close to RAD.

Borland C++ Builder. The easiest way to build tools/apps using windows dialogs and controls. Unfortinitly, it is not for free, but very good.

whats wrong with the vs gui builder?? Its very simple to use and you can create and edit dialogs very simply. Even easeir to add member's and message handling. Its just one click:)

From my experience the best options by far are Borland C++ Builder (or Delphi), or Windows Forms in the .NET languages. Both of the above are pretty similar (some of the same people were involved actually), and both do a very good job.

A WYSIWYG editor based on WxWidgets is being developed as a plugin for Codeblocks (though it might also run as a standalone app): http://www.codeblocks.org/

I don't know if it's complete yet, but take a look anyway - it might be what you want. More info for this would be at their forums.
