Many years ago, I enjoyed coding our work-based application with VB5 connecting to an Access database. I've been retired for 10 years, and would now like to do something similar. But I'm now using an Apple Mac, so VB and Access is out, unless I go down the route of Parallels, which will be expensive.

I have looked at Python, but it appears to be used for creating rather simplistic text-based apps. What I would like to be able to do is what I did with VB, for example connect to a database, draw a form, and drop onto it text boxes, buttons, drop-down lists, etc. I don't see anywhere where Python lets me do this. If it does, how?

I also loved the coding associated with VB5, which seemed much more intuitive than languages such as C etc. Any advice gratefully received.
