Is there a Winforms(ish) GUI designer for iot?

The answer is most likely no according to google but hey, I've managed to miss important information in google searches before from a lack of knowing the exact words to search with.

Is there a non XAML/WTF Presentation Foundation way of creating a GUI for IoT? Something more Winforms like where buttons and stuff actually go where you want with drag and drop?

Not that I know.

But you can drag&drop controls in XAML under Visual Studio the same way you do in a WinForms project. But learning how the markup is working would greatly improve your UI. XAML is really powerful, versatile and fairly straight forward to achieve what you need.

I've been trying that but some containers just disappear and I have to modify them in code. Can't resize a textbox despite putting in widths and heights. Haven't even gotten to trying to dynamically set control contents... Ugh.

Edit: Said textblock but meant textbox.
