Have you tried it? It is not a Python tool ;-) And there had been not much
move there for more than a year...

There is a well known set of GUI Builders for Pyhon around, most of them
mentioned in this thread.
The most important decision is what GUI-Toolkit to use. This will influence
much of your *programming* tasks that follows the *layout*. Printing?
HTML-Widget? Drag-and-Drop?

Of course there are well known GUI-Builders like Delphi or RealBasic (on
Mac) who support you seamlessly in all your tasks.

But in every case you need a *thorough* understanding of how the Toolkit
Works. Tk/Tcl is simple at the surface but there is a lot of rickery with
event bindings, and you sometimes need TIX at well, because HList is a
strong power horse...

If you want to have the choice do C++ (a lott of ttools there!) or buy
Delphi (some tthousend bucks butt Object Pascal is a nice language as well
;-))

There is no silver bullet at the Python market at the moment...
