Hello!

You probably want to use wxErlang to build any GUI as gs is depricated and
not supported any more. See the big warning on the top of
http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/gs.html

As for GUI builder you might try wxGlade and then export to XRC and use the
wxXmlResource module to run the GUI. I haven't tried it but hopefully it
will work :)
