I am looking for GUI design tool that's very flexible and will export to a custom XML file. The GUIs are rendered in DirectX and controlled in C++ and LUA, so I need to design and place every graphical component of the window including the basic control buttons and regions. I'm getting pretty tired of setting up the attributes in XML and its time for a graphical tool. I've looked at several packages, but I'm not sure they offer everything I need. I'm not even sure if one exists...

I've never really looked into it so I'm not sure of its quality, but you may want to look into CEGUI. I know it has some sort of layout editor that saves to XML.

I tried something similar with the GT-designer. You can write your own plugins for it to define your QT-like GUI and export it into a xml-based configurations. Maybe that could be a way to help you. But you have to extend it at first or you have to adapt your own UI to the QT xml-scheme.
Tak a deeper look into it at QT documentation .

With best regards,
Kimmi
