Difficulty Getting Titlebar Caption to Show Up

Postby tamakazura » Fri Oct 08, 2010 23:54

Hello CEGUI People!

I have created my own tiling framewindow with its own titlebar and it shows up in game nicely aligned and looking good. However, when I type in a caption for the titlebar, this does not show up on the titlebar. I was wondering if any of you could tell me why? It looks good to me, and as I said, it shows up on screen looking right.
Also, the images are light coloured.
I am using the default renderer (falagard), and my looknfeel is set up as follows:

<WidgetLook name="MyLook/Titlebar">
<PropertyDefinition name="CaptionColour" initialValue="00000000" redrawOnWrite="true" />
<Property name="NonClient" value="True" />
<ImagerySection name="normal">
<FrameComponent>
<Area>
<Dim type="LeftEdge">
<AbsoluteDim value="0" />
</Dim>
<Dim type="TopEdge">
<AbsoluteDim value="0" />
</Dim>
<Dim type="RightEdge">
<UnifiedDim scale="1" type="RightEdge" />
</Dim>
<Dim type="BottomEdge">
<UnifiedDim scale="1" type="BottomEdge" />
</Dim>
</Area>
<Image type="TopLeftCorner" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleTopLeft" />
<Image type="TopRightCorner" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleTopRight" />
<Image type="BottomLeftCorner" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleBottomLeft" />
<Image type="BottomRightCorner" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleBottomRight" />
<Image type="LeftEdge" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleLeft" />
<Image type="TopEdge" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleTopCentre" />
<Image type="RightEdge" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleRight" />
<Image type="BottomEdge" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleBottomCentre" />
<Image type="Background" imageset="mywidgets" image="WindowTitleCentre" />
<VertFormat type="Stretched" />
<HorzFormat type="Tiled" />
</FrameComponent>
</ImagerySection>
<ImagerySection name="caption">
<TextComponent>
<Area>
<Dim type="LeftEdge" >
<AbsoluteDim value="12" />
</Dim>
<Dim type="TopEdge" >
<AbsoluteDim value="0" />
</Dim>
<Dim type="RightEdge" >
<UnifiedDim scale="1" type="RightEdge">
<DimOperator op="Subtract">
<WidgetDim dimension="Height" />
</DimOperator>
</UnifiedDim>
</Dim>
<Dim type="BottomEdge" >
<UnifiedDim scale="1" type="BottomEdge" />
</Dim>
</Area>
<ColourProperty name="CaptionColour" />
<VertFormat type="CentreAligned" />
</TextComponent>
</ImagerySection>
<StateImagery name="Active">
<Layer>
<Section section="caption" />
<Section section="normal"/>
</Layer>
</StateImagery>
<StateImagery name="Inactive">
<Layer>
<Section section="normal"/>
<Section section="caption" />
</Layer>
</StateImagery>
<StateImagery name="Disabled">
<Layer>
<Section section="normal" />
<Section section="caption" />
</Layer>
</StateImagery>
</WidgetLook>
Also, I've noticed that both my window and the other framewindows in the looknfeel file are referencing "__auto_titlebar__". This seems to be a macro of sort. Could there be some sort of conflict between my titlebar and the other auto_titlebars?

You can try

Code: Select all

<PropertyDefinition name="CaptionColour" initialValue="FF000000" redrawOnWrite="true" />

I've actually already given that a try.
Thanks anyway, though.

Alright Fixed it. Not really sure how, because I changed a bunch of stuff at the same time, but the solution was probably
<PropertyLinkDefinition name="CaptionColour" widget="__auto_titlebar__" targetProperty="CaptionColour" initialValue="FF000000" />
Making sure the initial value of this attribute in the framwindow widgetlook was the same as the one in the titlebar.
