City Desk interface
What language was the citydesk user interface created in? It is extremely well set up and easy to use. I am going to be doing some interface programming, and would like a few pointers as to where to get started.
I understand that CityDesk was all done in Visual Basic, except for a few things that VB simply can't do. I'm not going to mention the D-word, but there are other products out there that are up to par with VB when it comes to rapid UI design, and where you don't have to switch to C++ for any reason.
Joel has given away a great book on the subject:
I just read the free chapters - an excellent read. I'm going to get the printed/full version when my wife allows me to buy more computer books...
