Are there any tools for gui based application
development in LINUX? Something like VB?

Glade / Glade2
it's for QT development I believe

I am having problems with designing in GTK.
If I click on text box object it fill up the entire window.

Also how do i do the coding?Is it similar to VB?

I suggest Kylix, it's delphi based and u can code once and compile on both linux/windows.

Gambas is supposed to be a lot like Visual Basic.

glade (and gtk) use 'boxes' to lay out widgets. add a box, then add a widget to it.

Glade / Glade2
it's for QT development I believe

Glade is for GTK/Gnome development

KDevelop/ QT Designer are for KDE/QT development

You need to add some kinda container such as a GtkTable , or GTKFixed, if your used to a VisualBasic style design, its prolly best to use GTKFixed since you can just plop your butttons/listboxes/whatever anywhere

In glade you can use libglade with your c/c++/ada95 projects

Using libglade

python libglade

For you issue about the text box filling up the whole window... check out the "Fixed Position" option within GTK / Glade.
