My question is that exactly. My problem is I can code in C#, although I am a perfectionist and like to be able to have the simplicity of creating GUI without coding them. I found a tool that allows me to do that for Droid, although it is in its native code. Is there a way I can combine the Java interface with the c# without errors.

Here is an example of what I would like to use.

I can't answer your question directly but the end goal for DE is to have a whole series of tools for creating your DE application with the minimum of coding. It'll never be no coding at all, as I understand it, because DE will always be a comparatively programmer-orientated framework, but there'll be this toolkit of content editors none-the-less.

There's no details and no timescale on the Screen Editor (UI) tool unfortunately, but there's a list of planned content editors in the Wiki:

Hi Joe,

In the future you might be able to setup UI and simple trigger logic without any coding. If there are enough editors available (v1.0, v2.0, we don't know yet) you could certainly prototype something together quickly without coding or extend or modify something existing (e.g. making game mods).

However currently we do not have any sort of UI Editor available, so you are out of luck. We are still in beta and will stay in beta till the end of 2012.

Your comparison with native tools like DroidDraw, Visual Studio, XCode Interface Designer, etc. is also a little flawed because those generally just generate code for you, which is usually very close to the platform and used framework (Java, Win32, Cocoa) and cannot be used on any other platform. Also the kind of applications those tools allow might also be possible with HTML5, but none of this is currently the focus of the Delta Engine, which is game development, not UI applications (others are much better at that than we are).
