The program is nice, my only comments which are due to be fixed in the next release are:. It has several tuyorial managers like Ogre which need to find their respective resource locations, so you need to define the necessary resource groups and their locations within resources. This argument gives you information about the event.

In the example you gave, how are added the “Text” properties to the widget? Or add some extra information somewhere in the tutorial. When setting the size you must create a UDim object to tell it what size it should be.

With comments, of course! I have added code where it differs from the 0.

Additional filenames are appended using “. The functions work easy: The important thing to realize is that you’re only supposed to set one of the two parameters of a UDim object; the other parameter must be 0.

Now we must create the RenderTexture. Whether it’s a button or a slider, they all inherit the members of a window object. Note that, as is mentioned above, on Ubuntu Background colors can be altered, images, size, and position: Recently a Skin repository has opened where everyone can upload cetui download custom skins. Why reinvent the wheel when there are decent libraries available?


Add the following code to the bottom of the createScene function:. In the “relative” positioning mode, the properties that specify the location of the control are offsets added to the parent element. From this point a interface can be made. The “stable” releases should work just fine, and recommended. First setting up CEGUI inside your project, and then creating the necessary code to initialize everything. Firstly, we will need to add the header tutirial the element we want to put into the Application – in this case a ‘Push Button’.

These properties determine the position, size, text, etc. When you try to do things ad hoc ‘on the fly’things will get quite nasty in the end. Manipulating tutorual in CEGUI is not one of the easiest or most straightforward things in the library. This window has an imagebox and on top of this imagebox is a button.

Be sure you can compile and run this code before continuing. It is an interface between human and computer. For a mouse move event this might be trivial. This should be roughly self-explanatory. This is a very useful tool that can be downloaded here.

You can also add colours, either specified directly, or sourced from properties. This can be convenient for various types of windows, tjtorial can also be turned off if desired. When the player clicks on the button, nothing happens. The following two directories are needed.

Google it to find out more. Or an imageset tileset which is an image containing more images, like various buttons.

This is a nice application which allows you to draw an interface in a method similar to Visual Basic or other RAD environments. Doing so is entirely optional, although the instructions here are based on that layout. CEGUI has full skinning support and comes degui two or three standard designs which you can modify at will, by replacing the default images and altering the imageset files.


Imagesets will also be loaded through this class. This function is called after the “Build” button was clicked.

A Drag and drop event tells you what dropped. Create a window, and cast it to a different type.

Getting Started

With a simple button it would also be possible to hide windows:. A list of references used in this tutorial, or additional links which might be an interesting read. Completely the same as the previous code: You can find the code for this tutorial here.

I used the links you’ve mentionned above to create some custom widgets, and it’s working quite well I’ve a little more question about custom widgets: Also for the next couple of statements. We will not be using this in this tutorial, but I would feel remiss if I tutprial not at least show you an example of its use. To create tutoeial batch file, simply create a text file in your favorite text editor, put the code below in it, and save it with an extension of “.

Now, the cgeui line is basically the default way of adding things: To do that, we will first need a pointer to the Quit button we created in the previous section. Note that we have added the Viewport to the texture itself as opposed to the RenderWindow, which tutoorial where we usually add Viewports.
