    creating a canvas environment in windows forms

    I'd like some advise
    I need to create a GUI environment where a user can design a GUI, that can be saved into a C struct that will later be used by a programmer to define actions.
    The GUI consists of a canvas and a menu of objects, such as buttons and images, that the user can place on the canvas and define them, by stretching them with a mouse, or clicking on them do display a menu that allows him to change their properties.
    Can I do such a think in Windows Forms?
    If yes, van you please suggest a guide?
    if no, are there any other tools I can use to create this?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Sounds like you want SketchFlow. But, Premium and above editions of VS2013 include SketchFlow

    thanks dglienna! I looked up SketchFlow and it looks like a tool that is used for creating prototypes. Is it also good for coding a tool that helps creating GUI designs?
    after a bit reading, I came across Windows Forms. Perhaps it can answer this?
