Marmalade SDK 6.1 they removed the UI Studio builder tool used in previous versions to construct the UI for apps.

now is there any alternative to the tool or we have to construct the UI programmatically ?

The Marmalade Studio UI Builder has been removed from the Marmalade SDK. This means it is no longer a supported part of the product.

We have removed the UI Builder because we believe that, going forwards, it is better for the Marmalade UI runtimes to support a standard UI markup rather than our proprietary markup. In the 6.1 release, we plan to support a standard UI markup, meaning that developers can leverage multiple 3rd party tools (including free tools) that support that markup.

Our plan for the 6.0.1 release is to make the UI Builder source code publicly available, together with full instructions on how to build it. In the meantime, developers can still use the UI Builder tool by installing the most recent 5.2.x SDK version.

There is no plan to abandon support for the current ITX markup for the IwUI runtime. Developers can continue to create ITX markup, either through the UI Builder tool or by hand, and be sure that the ITX markup will be usable in future versions of the IwUI runtime.

This is strange, although they still use the UI files in the new SDK sample apps – Mina Samy Oct 7 '12 at 8:54
I found the answer in 6.0.6 and I will update my answer. – Max Oct 7 '12 at 9:06
Thanks a lot Max – Mina Samy Oct 7 '12 at 9:20

There's a XML UI builder available for Marmalade too. You can check it out here.
