Take a look at Delphi Prism. It does a very good job of using the Visual
Studio IDE to mix writing .NET classes in a Pascal-like syntax, with
using Interface Builder to design the UI side of things.

I wrote an article in the Prism Wiki about using Cocoa Bindings and KVP
to link UI elements to the controller classes.
