Hi, I was just wondering how do you guys desing your forms? Do you write the code, or use some visual tool... can they be designed in Visual Studio and the code easily added to the python script?

Thanks :laugh:

and install the visual studio support. This way you can design iron python winforms with the visual designer.

Neat...I'll have to look into that.

I do all of my gui writing "by hand"--that is, I create the code and use it to position the items myself. I've never been a fan of gui design tools, because way back in the day they would create such awful, unreadable code. Plus, as a Java Swing developer, I'm used to having all sorts of Layout Managers to help me create nice, resizable GUIs. I haven't been able to find the equivalent of Layout Managers in .NET, so maybe that means you're supposed to use Visual Studio when you write .NET programs.

I used SharpDevelop to develop my plugin. Visual Studio was pretty slow on my machine, because of the completion features. And it use to crash from time to time, don't know why. In fact it was not the complete Visual Studio, it was just the free stuff, Visual Studio Shell, if I correctly remember the name.
SharpDevelop was pretty, simpler and effective. It has just one annoying bug. Sometime when a parentheses is open it crashes. But it is a recoverable crash and if you put a space, then the parentheses it works fine.

I also use SharpDevelop.

From what I've seen of the Visual Studio 2010 plugin, it seems to only have a WPF designer.

Then Sharpdevelop is the way to go :)

My Python GUIs are also handcoded normally.

As per my experience there is not a big difference between SharpDevelop and visual studio. But installing VS first might be better, because VS setup installs the .NET framework and the SDK..
