Dear all,

1) WxWindows

2) WxPython

3) GUI (10 user licence = 399 EUR)

........ Begin of extract
wxDesigner is a tool written to make creating dialogs for wxWindows based 
programs easy and fast.

wxWindows is a cross-platform toolkit and it thus cannot make use of native 
resource formats as they typically exist for many platforms. For that reason, 
wxWindows has been optimized over time to make writing dialogs by hand as 
easy as possible, but this approach has limitations as soon as dialogs reach 
a certain complexity. Even without the inevitable number of typos, writing 
nice looking dialogs is a hassle and reordering the items in a dialog often 
amounts to rewriting the dialog from scratch. In addtion to being quite some 
work, writing dialogs also requires a profound and exact knowledge of the 
syntax used for creating and positioning dialog items.

Another problem when writing dialogs using the wxWindows library is that some 
users might want to make use of the RAD features of the Python bindings 
during development, but create a native binary using C++ at the end. This 
would entail rewriting (or at least reediting considerably) all dialog 
related code. [...]

Does it mean we can develop a visual application in an interpreted language 
using Python bindings .. and obtain a native compiled binary in the end?

This seems very exciting.
