Actually when you create the project from wxDesigner, the "main" will
also be generated for you ... then you include the correct files in
eclipse (note that one file never needs to be edited ... like glade).

I went for wxDesigner years ago when wxglade was fairly unstable ...
have not tested it lately.

wxDesigner has its own editor (so you can say it is a complete
environment) ... but I only use it to automatically generate classes,
events ... as eclipse+pydev bring much more to the picture.

I really do not regret the expense.

PS: wxDesigner will also generate code for other languages (never tried)
 : c++, c#, perl
PPS: I'm not getting any money from them  ;-)
