injectTimePulse and "Updated" event

I guess I am doing something wrong, however, I am not sure what. I am working with the latest 1.0 source code from the Mercurial repository.

Basically, I have subscribed to the "Updated" event, however, the handler never gets called. I am calling the following method in my code, each frame:

Code: Select all


However, I have noticed that the Window::update() doesn't get called, so, no "Updated" event gets triggered.

I have found out I have to call the following method too:

Code: Select all


Should I really call both methods ?

Thanks !

Yes, you do need to call both of those - at least for the moment. Basically the GUIContext one is the main one now (the input injection interface moved there as you have seen). The lingering API on CEGUI::System effectively just serves the Animation system, and I would like to clean that up so the two calls are not needed (though I'm currently undecided on how to go about that).

Hope this reassures you that you're not doing something unnecessary.

yes, that's great, thanks for answering.

BTW you convinced me to switch to dynamic linking - to be honnest I didn't have much choice, because Lua is used by both my engine and Cegui, and I wanted to share the LuaState object. So, it took me two days, but now all the dependencies are linked dynamically :)
