A good Visual Designer for IronPython is hard to find. I was looking for a better GUI designer. I was spoiled by the VB6 designer, and found the graphics APIs in CPython to be a hassle. I discovered IronPython and WPF and set out to test them. Visual Studio for IronPython is not so good. I have so far settled happily on NetBeans with IronPython and Visual Studio for C#. I generate great graphics in XAML files in Visual Studio and Kazaml (I stay Pythonic and never write C# code), read and parse the XAML files with IronPython code, and add support code. I think M. Foord mentioned doing this somewhere on the Web. I have experimented in this work mode to design with difficulty a Python editor with WPF's RichTextBox. Writing a drag&drop GUI designer is hard. I think someone should take over development of Visual Studio for IronPython. That's seems a good place to start, and work it into a Silverlight IDE.
