I am wanting to know how to Build a GUI without litrally dragging and dropping components onto a Frame.

I work with Developers but dont actually develop and have started with Java rather than C , but In C (which is what my colleages use), I noticed the Developers have a XAML page that they work with to create their "screens and components etc" and then they have code Behind to that XAML sheet that contains the actual code.I have been told that this type of approach is "cleaner" as there isnt any arbitryly generated code created.

How do I create a seperate 'style' sheet and a seperate class file that interact in eclipse?

Many Thanks

Avoid IDEs like the plague. Learn to code GUIs by hand.

And I think this thread would sit better on the GUIs forum, despite its inaccurate title.

And that's what Ty specifically did not want.

Maybe I will, maybe I won't. Lets see how the cards fall. Unlike most, I'm not perfect in everything I do. FYI it was late when I posted that and just got back from the club. So really, "read the original post, perhaps" and the insinuations that accompany it, doesn't do anything for my hangover. So forgive my ignorance when I say I don't care and that I miss read the OP. Its that simple.

Then why ask for clarification with the "eh"? Ah, but I forgot, you don't care, so never mind. Best of luck my friend.

Thanks Rob, Pete, Campbell and Brad,

I got my first little app going and yes I will be more specific as to what my subject says and to what forum to put it in.

Thanks again guys.
