I'm surprised no one else has chimed in for Dabo yet ;-)
Dabo has a UI designer and it is intended specifically for refugees from 
Visual FoxPro and VB. Dabo is kind of marginal as far as 'adequate 
resources' though; the docs are sorely lacking. Most of the 
documentation is in the screencasts AFAICT. Those who invest the effort 
to figure it out (not me, not yet) seem to like it, though.
