Graphics, User Interfaces How would I describe today's GUIs? A mess. -- A mess that grew as new features were needed, with lack of proper design, with a desire to keep backward compatibility, and with tools from the past trying to achieve future needs. I propose a new design philosophy for GUIs. We'll call it Vermaden's GUI. Note: This is the latest entry in our 2008 article contest.

Wow. ok, first of all, get either VB6 or VB.NET, it is the world's most used RAD IDE. Then try to do so like how you said.


Yep. That's because VB is a truly awful way to make GUIs. Yes you can make them quickly, but they will suck too many ways to describe. The lack of layouts is a huge one. Every other toolkit has those though, so unless you're insane, you've got lots of choices that support doing UIs with layouts.
