    Use Koda:

    GUI Designer: Koda 1.7.2.0 - AutoIt Forums

    [ The Admin Bar - see below, was done in Koda to start with, then I just fiddled with some of the settings..... ]

    I agree with Mattx that Koda is a good way to get started but all you need to know is in the excellent AutoIt Help File. Look under GUI Reference, GUI Concepts and you will see that you need to use the GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) command to display the GUI.

    AutoIt really is a top tool.

    edit: Forgot to mention that the key concepts you need to get your head around are the differences between MessageLoop mode and OnEvent mode. IIRC, MessageLoop mode is OK for simple GUIs but can get a bit cumbersome for more complex designs. OnEvent on the other hand is overkill for simple work but a better choice for detailed work.
