Hi Dave,

Sorry, I just read and answer your post quickly... so, here again about the
IDE development for Python

http://pydev.org/download.html
http://pydev.org/screenshots.html

Also, please read and follow instructions:
http://pydev.org/manual_101_root.html
http://pydev.org/manual_101_project_conf2.html

About IDE you can install the Qt 2.5 or 2.6 SDK, it comes with the Qt
Designer. You just generates the design you want, then you save it as
myGUI.ui.

The only point is, if you are working on Windows with Python Qt, when you
have to run on console the command pyuic4 that will generate your
ui_myGUI.py source file to link it to your system, it doesn't work.

After reading and googling around, I find out that aparently there is a bug
on it for the free edtion of Qt for Windows. Hope that it can be fixed soon.
This means, that the GUI has to done code by yourself using Qt programming.

The Qt Design should just work fine for Linux, because I didn't hear about
any similar problem.

For Qt C++ on Windows it is apparently working -- but I didn't try yet:

I hope this help. cheers.....
