I believe it had some limitations at the time that proved difficult to accomplish what I was after (tho the slight concussion from pounding my head against wxPerl's brick wall may have effected my memory). That said, I don't consider "wizards" or GUI builders an adequate substitute for docs. (Admittedly, thats a subjective statement). Issues arise when things go wrong, or don't behave as expected: its unlikely the "wizard" is going to tell me why...that, in part, is what the docs are for (w/ the source to fall back on as a last resort). Delivering complex wizard-derived apps to a large customer base requires a lot of faith, trust and luck when relying on minimally documented APIs. But I'll definitely give wxGlade another look.
