wxWidgets - Open-source cross-platform GUI library

wxWidgets is an open-source cross-platform GUI library for Windows, GTK+, MacOS 9, MacOS X, Motif, X11and OS/2. wxWidgets is a native look-and-feel toolkit since it uses native widgets wherever possible.

C++, Python, Perl, C#/.Net and other languages are supported.

wxWidgets gives you a single, easy-to-use API for writing GUI applications on multiple platforms. Link with the appropriate library for your platform (Windows/Unix/Mac/WinCE,etc.) and compiler (almost any popular C++ compiler), and your application will adopt the look and feel appropriate to that platform. On top of great GUI functionality, wxWidgets gives you: online help, network programming, streams, clipboard and drag and drop, multithreading, image loading and saving in a variety of popular formats, database support, HTML viewing and printing, and much much more.
