There is which is about, well... gui-construction.

And there was created a , where currently there are only 3 questions tagged.

It seems OPs had in mind (46 tagged).

I don't know which one is better but for me they are about same thing.

  • IMO gui-elements is better but in context of new users controls might be more natural. – Kuba Mar 20 '14 at 20:35

    [tag: controls] could be a subset of gui-elements, right? I'd say in a GUI there are usually controls, as well as fields where something is displayed (possibly interactively, i.e. with controls inside what is displayed (clickables and mouseovers)). I guess a big advantage of marking tags as synonyms would be that we have fewer tags for which to write wiki's. I think it very good to write wiki's, so that we can immediately identify Q&A's that have been tagged "incorrectly", before tags get out of hand like table and data. Do you have ideas about what the wiki's should be? – Jacob Akkerboom Mar 21 '14 at 11:42
  • @JacobAkkerboom I think grid-layout + controls should be considered as secondary tags to narrow the scope of gui-construction. There is also output-formatting but it seems to have wider meanning. – Kuba Mar 22 '14 at 9:05
  • gui-elements is now a synonym of gui-construction. How does that affect this proposal? Would you like to see gui-construction and controls merged? – Mr.Wizard Feb 11 '16 at 14:02
  • @Mr.Wizard I think so, I will do this. I thought that maybe e.g. a question about a specific Slider's issue should be gui-elements instead of gui-construction but I suppose broad gui-contruction + functions will be enough. – Kuba Mar 15 '17 at 14:06

Yes, but is better, deserves the wiki and should be marked as synonym.

  • I voted for this, but with the addition that gui-elements can work with dynamic or similar to denote interactive elements; or output-formatting or similar to denote static objects like Panel, PaletteNotebook and relatives. – István Zachar Mar 23 '14 at 12:58

Yes, is appropriate tag, deserves the wiki and should be marked as synonym.

No, those tags are not synonyms.
