wxFormBuilder

P: n/a

I just discovered wxFormBuilder. After having tried several GUI
builders for wx (including DialogBlocks, wxGlade, XRCed, Boa
constructor), this is the first one I can actually use.

To use it wxFormBuilder with wxPython, I generated an xrc resource and
loaded it with wxPython. All the tedious GUI coding is gone :-)

I've also looked at wxFormBuilder,
but I found it far too difficult and
fully unreadable (how can you create actions/bindings on components you don't see ?).
So I might be very very naive,
but why all so complex ??

It is not complex. I have posted a small 'Hello World!' howto on my
blog. It shows you how to bind events:

Why can't you use Boa Constructor? I really enjoy using it.

It feels awkward. I don't know why.

What don't you like about wxGlade? It actually generates Python code.
There has been a lot more development going on recently, too.
