Creating a Wireframe Web App

[FONT=&quot]Hi everyone,[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]I'm about to begin a project in University where I will need to build an application which is like a Wireframe.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Basically, I want to allow users to design forms themselves. They would also need to be able to save these forms, re-open them and edit them (e.g. move buttons around, etc.)[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]I've asked around and some people have told me to 'look up APIs', but I'm not sure what I should be doing.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Essentially, this part of my application will be like the Visual Studio program, where users can drag and drop components (buttons, labels, etc.) onto a form. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]My biggest issue is that I don't know what I would be able to save these forms as. These forms would need to be saved in a database and I don't know if they would need to be saved as images or is there another type of file / variable I could store them as.[/FONT]

What is the C# equivalent term for VB's "NOTHING"
Can anyone help with this? I've tried to figure it out, but I just keep hitting dead end's...

What I'm trying to: Create an application that allows users to create screen mock-ups.

So I basically want to create a wireframe application, where users can drag and drop things (buttons, labels, etc.) onto a blank page.

In other words, it's exactly like developing a Windows Form Application in VB.NET - where the user designs the form by dragging controls onto it.

Essentially, I need to be able to save those forms in some way, and allow the user to re-open them and move stuff around.

I'd really appreciate any feedback.

Thanks a mill!
I've already suggested XML as a means to store designs. What have you done in the way of research and implementation on that?
