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.

I'm a C# developer and I use dynamic layout for all my user interfaces. I mostly use the TableLayoutPanel and the docking/anchoring system. One of the reasons why I think this is necessary is for people with different DPI-settings: all the controls get bigger and if you don't use dynamic layout, you get overlapping controls and an ugly (sometimes unusable) UI.
