Winforms are still a useful and easy way to design a UI for your routine. There are numerous tutorials online demonstrating their use.

 

If you prefer a modeless - always present - Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) can be used within AutoCAD palettes. This link contains some resources:

I'm a big fan of WPF these days; I use it for both AutoCAD plug-ins, and Browser Applications. I still have a great deal to learn, but even with only little, one can do much... If that makes sense.

 

Cheers

I haven’t done much integration of WPF with my AutoCAD development. Though, I have been making some time with XAML in a Windows Store App I’ve been messing around with. From what I can tell, the two (WPF and XAML) are the same. Maybe an item or two missing from one or the other.

 

I have to admit that Expression Blend (now included with Visual Studio Express 2013) is pretty handy. I still get in there to make sure the XAML makes sense, but Blend allows for more immediate visual feedback.
