  True, you could, but don't do that.

  You should investigate strategies like model view presenter, and test or
  behavior driven development.

  My recommendation echos the other advice you've been given. Basically you
  think of your application in terms of two problems or domains. One is the what
  that you want no do. What information do you need?

  The other problem is how do you get that information from the user and retun
  to them information than they need?

  Regardless of which side you have driving, UI or Presenter, having a design
  such as this allows for much cleaner code.
