Your coding skills are great and getting better all the time

It's just a shame your programs are not that nice to look at. Displaying prompts and messages on a text-based console is all well and good, but it's so 1970s, isn't it? Add some green text on a black background and your retro look will be complete. There has to be a better way to communicate with your users than the console, and there is: using a graphical user interface or GUI (pronounced "gooey"). Sounds cool, but complex, and it can be. But, don't fret; learning a trick or two will have your code all graphical in no time. Let's get all gooey (sorry, GUI) in this chapter.
