"Designing a GTK+ interface graphically with Glade and libglade."

"This month... [George]...introduces you to Glade, an interface designer that can make the job a lot easier by generating the C source code for you, and to libglade, which builds the interface from an XML file (Glade's save format) at runtime, allowing you to change the look of a program without needing to recompile. George takes you step-by-step through the use of these tools by designing a simple phonebook application."

"Now that you know how to hand code your graphical interface using GNOME Canvas, you'll see how to design an interface while avoiding source code."

"Glade is a classical interface designer, in the sense that it generates the source code for your interface. However, in this article, we will use Glade only to design the interface and to save it in an XML format. Then we will write code that will load the Glade file and create widgets for us."
