I'm relatively new to Rpi but have experience with VB and c programming on microprocessors. I'm designing an application where I would like to use the 7" touch screen as a user interface for the public. i.e. buttons, text boxes etc.
I'd appreciate any suggestions as to where I should start, ideally with a turtorial or worked examples.

Qt is awesome. For something simple, or along the lines of a smartphone app type thing, you might want to look into Qt Quick, which uses a markup language for the UI and Javascript for the code. I've not used Qt Quick personally but that's pretty much what it's for.
