Hey

Im going to use Visual Studio (C#) just because it is so difficult to do GUIs in MyEclipse. I mean just dragging a button and trying to resize it is near impossible. VS has always been so almost instinct.

Maybe Im doing something wrong as I would perfer that my entire system be Java based for compatibility. Is there some kind of way to make it all simple and easy to create GUIs?

Thanks!

Yup. Learn Swing coding. It's not difficult, and gives you total control.

With VS you just jump in: You almost dont need to know about programming or even have touched VS before. Java makes it difficult to create a simple interface

There are lots of sensible reasons why someone might choose Java over C# or C# over Java. Not wanting to learn to code a GUI properly isn't one of them.
