  • Hello,

    Depending on the type of designer you are looking for, there are a few options:

    1) Visual Studio supports a Windows Forms designer (for building Windows Forms-based interfaces)

    2) Microsoft Expression (
        While it has not been officially released yet (only in demo/beta form, currently). MS Expression offers a far richer designer experience for Windows Presentation Framework (codenamed Avalon). WPF will ship with WinFX version 1.0, and is the next generation client interface framework.

    Hope that helps,
