Depends which UI. The Qt4 UI is developped with Qt designer.
The OSX UI, the dedicated offiical too whose name I don't know.
The HTTP interface is hand-written pseudo-HTML.
(The former WxWidgets interface was laid out directly within C++ code.)

If you mean, search the file from hard drive, or from Google, then it's
really a "side" interface issue. You only need to use basic playlist
controls, and extend an existing user interface plugin.
