UI design IDE

Postby danc81 » Fri Oct 02, 2009 6:17 pm

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and new to Android development. I've been developing applications for the iPhone for a while and have got used to the Interface Builder for creating the layouts. I've started using Eclipse (for the first time) and the Android SDK and I'm finding it a little difficult to create layouts using the XML visual designer.

I'm just wondering if there is a better IDE or designer of some sort for creating layouts. The main thing I'm finding odd is not being able to drag and place items, once they have been dropped I have to edit the co-ordinates manually and some controls don't even show up on the designer.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks.

That looks very promising, I like the way it lets you reposition controls. I will give it a try for my layout.

Thanks!
