Hi Everyone,
I've developed a GUI using Matlab to illustrate a new idea. Now, I plan to develop the commercial version of the GUI for Windows platform. The GUI is meant to do some processing and present some graphs in an animated way. It includes a table and different graphs such as pie and bar charts. The GUI will interact with the user by means of two serial ports.
I just wonder what is the best language to develop such a GUI for commercial purposes. If you need more information, please let me know.
Cheers, Iman

Thanks George for your help. Appreciate it.
@John, I know Matlab is one of the best (at least for academic purposes). I truly believe in Maltab :)

With Matlab compiler you can make the GUI stand alone so it can run on computers without Matlab. Read about it here:

You've already built it, so why do it all over again in a different language? Perhaps you want a fancier GUI than GUIDE can build? That would be one reason. I'd say that C++ and C# are the two most common languages that apps are built in.

You won't find a definitive answer. Probably any language can do anything, so other than that, you're just looking at opinions so you won't get a "solid" answer.

Try typing applicationcompiler at MATLAB's command line.

Matlab can be standalone - as many others have said if you have the compiler.
If you are going to redesign your GUI you consider the time it will to do this...
You can develop very nice GUI's in Matlab by stretching the capability and using some semi/un documented methods... - some examples can be seen here

Awesome. You are right, it is very time-consuming to do it again. Thanks for your help.
