VDK (Visual Development Kit) is a C++ framework built to wrap Gtk+. VDK is implemented thinking to moderns RAD tools. It supports properties and an automatic signal/event dispatching feature with a hierarchy visiting pattern. Moreover makes using Gtk+ widgets an easy job to do. The development of a VDK based RAD tool like Borland C++ Builder is in progress. It offers:

  • signal/events dispatching strategy makes a clear distinction between interface and application.
  • a powerful and flexible signal system
  • supports properties like moderns RAD tools do, user defined properties are supported as well.
  • will track closely Gtk+ development and relies only on Gtk+ stable releases.
  • has a full documentation and soon a tutorial will be written.
