    Does anyone know of a good windows environment for creating a Windows GUI for serial data? I would like to make a "professional-looking" GUI for PIC processors for which I now use a terminal emulator like TeraTerm or HyperTerminal. Of course, I can make the serial commands and responses anything I like on the embedded side, but I would really like to make a user interface that would look better in Windows. It would be nice to have buttons and drop-down menus available too.

    Terminal v1.9b by Br@y++
    I really like this one because it can display the incoming character stream in HEX!

    I've made pretty good GIUs with Visual Studio. You cant take the graphics from scratch approach (long learning curve, but you have complete control over the graphics) or the forms approach, for a shorter learning curve.

    It would be pretty steep for me, but is there a tutorial path for Visual Studio?
