    many of those GUIs are for C++ I'd like one made for C so that i can use it in the best way

    anyways if it works fine on C its fine...:P what is most important is performance, good-looking, quite easy programming (there are always programms to make the dialogs so its never difficult :P) and portability.. i want it to work in win linux and if possible mobile phones
    I liked the WxWidgets, but i want to know more opinions about more GUI's

    Qt and wxWindows are C++-only. I recommend GTK+ if you're working with plain C. And yes, it does have good performance. And yes, it allows you to control pretty much everything. It is, after all, the native toolkit of the Gnome desktop environment, so it needs to be able to do a lot.

    GTK+ applications can run in mobile phones or PDAs?

    Not that I know of. But then, I'm not aware of a single cross-platform library that runs on small systems. Especially seeing as how quite a lot of modern mobile phones run J2ME, so they can't be programmed in C at all.

    apparently SWT can, but once again, thats a Java library.

    wxwidgets applications can run on pda's and they're based on GTK+...
    Which are the most appropriated GUI's for what i want (I repeat, good performance, nice control of the window to make dialogs similar to Windows Forms that can be ran on Win or linux)
    By the way, which do you use?

    There is no right or wrong answer here, just pick one and try it. If it doesnt suit your needs, try another. Anything anyone tells you about the "best this" or the "nicest that" is just opinion. Try some GUI libs and form your own opinions.

    >>By the way, which do you use?

    Java + SWT.

    SWT? I only know of AWT and Swing for Java...

    Personally, I do very little windowing. Usually I do windowing in Java, so it's Swing for me. In C++, I've tried all kinds of libraries, but wasn't really happy with any of them. GTK+ is too C, Qt too "additional build step". Haven't really tried wxWindows yet, though.
    I keep dreaming of my own library.

    Do you guys code Java for everything or just for this kind of applications? Do java apps have a better performance than C Apps?

    You should try wxWidget, i think you will like
    i would use it if i liked C++ but c++ sucks really!
    about java, it has some good ideas, such as the virtual machine and corrects some C mistakes, but i think it has a quite bad performance, despite it is very useful due to all its libraries
