Right, I have to confess that I am completely baffled. I have read (or 
tried to make my way through the turgid prose) the help on GUIKit trying 
to work out how to do the simplest possible thing - pop up a little 
window with a label asking for input, a field to put the numbers in and 
a button to click to enter the data in such a way that I can associate 
that numerical value with a particular variable name in some other 
Mathematica code. I can understand how to set up different layouts and 
so on but can I find out how to use the interface to enter simple data 
into some code (the idea being that I can then output the results 
through the same interface).

I would be most grateful for i) an explicit example ii)point me to the 
right page in help iii) give me a complete alternative to doing the same 

Also, as a suggestion, whoever wrote this sectin of the help should sit 
with someone trying to use and understand it, I'm afraid it contains 
some of the more incomprehensible writing that I have come across for a 
long time. The rest of the halp manual is generally fine with good clear 
simple examples
