Glade windows 3.7.1

We may face challenges while designing user interfaces in Perl,Python,C,C++ etc..There may be a way to do it but not up to the mark.Some times we wish to develop a good GUI in these languages.Now its not a problem..Glade 3.7.1 has released..

Glade is a tool, which creates the graphical front-ends for your GTK programs. Unlike Visual Basic or Delphi, Glade cannot be termed as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). It just builds the interface exactly as you want, and then writes the GTK code which produces the actual interface after compilation of the code.

You can get Glade by clicking the link

Glade is a RAD tool to enable quick & easy development of user interfaces for the GTK+ toolkit and the GNOME desktop environment.

The user interfaces designed in Glade are saved as XML, and by using the GtkBuilder GTK+ object these can be loaded by applications dynamically as needed.

By using GtkBuilder, Glade XML files can be used in numerous programming languages including C, C++, C#, Vala, Java, Perl, Python,and others.

Glade is Free Software released under the GNU GPL License

We can use Glade both in Open source and in Windows platform.We can easily integrate it with any languages.Glade actually provides an interface to design the user interfaces which we need to create.We can see the design structure only.

The output of Glade is a .glade XML file.We can easily integrate this XML file with any programming language.The look and feel of Glade is pretty good.

Obviously you need to know some other concepts like GTK+ while working with Glade.

Now imagine you are going to design a user interface in Perl,Python,C,C++ etc…

Happy Designing….
