Less coding is very much achievable through code reuse. You can create and call a method that will do the basic intializations and then call this method wherever you are doing the initializations.
This is one of the suggestions.

If you are having 10 buttons, you might be able to use a loop. You could put the labels in a vector.
Another thought is to use default colors etc. Use default when you can.

GUI is almost never reusable , one day you come to work and someone has already changed my gui that it looked a day before and you have to work with an old stuff but the code that drives the gui stays the same that's what's good about it.
