Hi folks, I used to program in Delphi, and was spoiled by its fabulous UI programming abilities. I'm now considering learning a widget toolkit. They all have their pluses and minuses. But what I would love to know, to help decide, is what Delphi programmers think of the existing ruby widget libaries. Any opinions? Greg

Hi Greg, have you tried the Apollo system? http://sourceforge.jp/projects/apollo/ I've been using it for more than half a year now and I am quite happy with it. There is almost no documentation, but if you're familiar with Delphi, everything seems pretty straightforward. So I usually use the Delphi help files and browse the Apollo source code when programming with unfamiliar VCL classes. And also, the Apollo developers have been very very friendly when answering my questions or dealing with my bug reports. Yes, Apollo is definitevly not perfect (yet)... I'd like to know waht you think of it. Regards Sven

By gum, that does look interesting. I'll get back to you sometime.

So far I've found them all equally disappointing. For a while now I've been considering writing a Ruby dfm loader/translator that rides on top of GTK or Fox. Perhaps I should check out Apollo first, as enduro suggested.
