Bindings in REALbasic work in a similar way. You drag and drop  
connections between GUI elements and select a binding such as "show  
static text if checkbox is selected", "enable text field when button  
is pressed", or "populate listbox with data from a database object".  
Back when I was still using RB, they were advertising this feature a  
lot but almost nobody used it, and writing custom bindings was  
cumbersome. (That is not supposed to say that I don't like the  
approach in general or in MrEd Designer.)

MrEd Designer is a great tool. Thanks a lot! I'd love to see a visual  
scheme IDE some day that makes interface design as easy as in RB.

One feature suggestion: You could provide a way to add custom  
interface elements via some sort of plugins.
