I haven't written software exactly like you describe but I have written GUI 
apps with PyQT( It is quite easy 
to use and there is a book available online that covers it quite 
extensively ( It also comes 
with a GUI builder tool that makes short work of dialogs and widgets.

I haven't used wxPython (haven't had any need), but it doesn't look much 
more difficult to use. IIRC, PyQT has more classes, however.
