since I have the former and not the latter, yes :)

yup, I havent seen any (tho i havent been looking too hard) but sure, there
is nothing about layout managers that precludes a graphical tool from
generating code.
If you know of any that are as polished as VC/VB's then I'ld be happy to try
them out.

On a more design issue, how can you guarantee that a UI looks exactly the
way you want to without using coordinates? I have some UIs that require lots
of different sized controls that do not fit a neat NSEW or table/matrix
spatial organization.
