I personally have been using vensterce (http://sourceforge.net/ 
projects/vensterce) as my GUI toolkit.

It is a very thin wrapper over top of the Win32 GUI APIs provided by  
the operating system. This coupled with some of the API documentation  
that explains how to create spinbox style lists and expandable edit  
controls (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms832344.aspx)  
works reasonably well for me.

However even this vensterce (out of the box) doesn't abstract these  
kinds of UI differences. It is something I am contemplating  
contributing to the vensterce project at some stage...

Hope this helps,
Christopher Fairbairn
