We've used something called ProtoGen+ from ProtoView Development
(908)329-8588; in fact, the program I'm currently struggling to document
was _written_ in ProtoGen. (Not recommended, BTW; that's not what's it's
designed for.) ProtoGen is quite satisfactory, and the programs that
come to me from the university we're affiliated with are often mocked
together in it.

A caution: In house, as a commercial software company, we have less use
for prototyping tools because the time you put into the mockups is "lost"
when you have to start over in C++ (or whatever). Most of our prototypes
are done directly in the desired "destination" language, hence I
personally am more familiar with the Borland Resource Workshop as a tool
for honing dialog boxes.

Hope this helps.
