Good GUI for Python

I must agree. wxPython is a nice GUI toolkit. Much easier in my opinion than
working with native widows objects.

I'll also agree that wxPython will not work with PythonWin. I tried and it
crashes way too often. I've been using Boa Constructor for a week now and I
really like it.

I think wxPython is *very* easy to use, if you can maneuver your way through
the C++ documentation.

Subject: Good GUI for Python

Hi, All

I surveyed 3 GUI framework for Python including wxPython, PythonWin's
included win32ui and Tkinter. My development environment is Mark Hammond's
PythonWin downloaded from ActiveStates.

These're my issues:

First, ActiveStates' Python tool cannot support Tkinter and I confirmed with
their stuff. So Tkinter maybe good, but not compatible with PythonWin.

Second, Mark's masterpiece win32ui and total MFC solution is excellent, but
I'd wanna bind on Windows platform.

Third, wxPython sounds great but not so easy as win32ui.

Is there any suggestions ? Change my develop environment or is there another
good gui for me ??

Best Regards,
