DialogBlocks Feedback

"I have been using DialogBlocks extensively for about a week, and just wanted to let you know how pleased I am. DialogBlocks makes GUI-building easy, like it should be. Drag-and-drop support is fabulous. DialogBlocks is the best GUI editor I've used. ...Thanks a million." - Mark

"Just wanted to say what a fine product Dialog Blocks is for writing new apps from scratch. I was able to be productive pretty much from day 1 - good intuitive structure aimed at the experienced wxWidgets user. Excellent job!" - Jon

"I really love this program. Actually the best and most intuitive development tool since Turbo Pascal IDE was introduced a long time ago." - Ake

"The reason I am writing is I am an avid fan of your DialogBlocks. I simply can't do without it. It's a wonderful piece of software, and a necessary addition to my coding toolkit." - Tyler

"I must say that DialogBlocks is the best RAD-Tool for wxWidgets! I have tested many others... All these tools are toys, missing many features and break the workflow in many situations." - Frank

"BTW, we've done all dialogs with DialogBlocks. I think it all came out very nicely. Using DB to build the dialogs was a real pleasure." - Mike
