Re: [R] RGTK2 and glade on Windows - GUI newbie

Yes, a GUI based on GTK+ (with or without Glade) will work on Windows XP.

If what you want to do is relatively straightforward (say, without any fancy formatting, or advanced event handling) then you should consider gWidgets. Look at the vignette in the gWidgets package.

If you do decide to go with RGtk2 directly rather than gWidgets, look at demo(package="RGtk2"). If you are using Glade, you might want to look at the source code for Rattle, which is a GUI built with Glade: see http://rattle.googlecode.com/
and http://datamining.togaware.com/survivor/Installation_Details.html (Another example is hydrosanity: http://hydrosanity.googlecode.com/)

By the way, there is a special mailing list for GUI issues: https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-gui
