  • I refuse to use things like Tk and wxWidgets.
    Having to specify placement of items is not how I want to spend my time.

    So I use HTML and get the browser to do most of the layout-type work for me.

    And yes, I'm lucky in that I can get all my clients to accept browser interfaces to anything. Eat your heart out :-)).
    • The proper way of writing UIs manually is by packing widgets into hboxes and vboxes, which is pretty much the same as table-based HTML layout. HTML done properly (ie. without tables for layout) is worse than that, actually, since CSS only provides a float model and absolute positioning. There have been some tentative steps towards hbox/vbox style positioning in drafts of newer versions of CSS, but the CSS WG is not exactly the most healthy or productive working group around.
