Thanks (",)

Eric, I've asked the mods to move this to Java, I'm sure you will get a quicker response from there.:)

Netbeans lets you create GUIs by dragging and dropping components.

Eclipse has plugins for GUI building, that I know for sure. Never used one to recommend you about a specific one though.

But after you got all the understanding you need you just want to do them fast and not spend time coding them :)

I do :) but if, for example, you have a deadline at work - satisfaction can wait, results are what important :)
