This question already has an answer here:

I write programs in Windows casually (apps like notepad, web-browser etc.). But I don't see a good alternative available. I have used Mono but it is not one bit like Visual Studio. I am having a tough time to figure out stuff. The apps that I write look something like this:

Private Sub Form_Load()
WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://google.com")
End Sub

and the have a blank forum and I add stuff like combo-box, buttons etc. Then I right-click those and write the code for it (see above bold). I found nothing like that in in Mono. Perhaps I am mistaken or confused.

Are you looking for an IDE for a specific language? Or an "all-in-one" IDE? Check out Anjuta and QT Creator. Also see this list of alternatives to Visual Studio for Linux

EDIT: QT Creator has a good GUI designer called...take a guess...QT Designer. Is that what you're looking for?
