Reference: Seesaw REPL Tutorial

Dave Ray has written a commented source listing which guides you through building a simple GUI with Seesaw.

; How can we get to the radio buttons without using the rbs var? How about
; with a selector:
(select f [:JRadioButton])
;=> (#<JRadioButton ... > #<JRadioButton ... >)

. . .

; and, of course, you can register a listener for group selection changes
(listen group :selection 
    (fn [e] 
      (when-let [s (selection group)] 
        (println "Selection is " (id-of s)))))

I have only done a bit of GUI programming with Java (mostly in college). But rather than giving me flashbacks to that nightmare, Seesaw makes me feel secure that I could face the Swing dragon again.

From the Seesaw readme:

It's an experiment to see what I can do to make user interface development funner in Clojure.
