Thank you for your reply, and I will take Tk into consideration. I just always thought the GUI's in Tk were a bit ugly. The reason for wanting to use GTK+ was because the newest GTK+ supports Gnome themes, i.e. the programs you write take on the look and feel of the theme currenlty applied.

The thing I would really like to do is to create a GUI that is highly customized to the way that I wanted it to look. I suppose I should've mentioned that before. I do not know how possible this is in Tk as I've never used it. If its possible, I'd gladly use it.

I really like the way some applications look when you buy them, even if sometimes a different look makes them a little harder to use. I hoped that with GTK+ and a Gnome theme, I might be able to make a GUI that looks very close to what I'd like it to.

If any of you have any advice on how to do something like that, I'd appreciate it. I'll definitely take more of a look at Tk, and Qt as you guys mentioned, and I definitely want to thank you all for your posts, especially the one with the link to the gtk-list.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
