CEGUI 0.8.7 and SFML 2.4.2 - load imageset

Postby HawkDeath » Tue Jul 11, 2017 17:18

Hi,
I try to use CEGUI in my program when I try to load a TaharezLook.imageset a program return this exception.
What I do wrong? How to fix this?

Code: Select all

//this code load a resources
   CEGUI::SchemeManager::getSingletonPtr()->createFromFile("bin/TaharezLook.scheme");
   CEGUI::ImageManager::getSingletonPtr()->loadImageset("bin/TaharezLook.imageset");      
   CEGUI::FontManager::getSingletonPtr()->createFromFile("bin/DejaVuSans-10.font");
   
   CEGUI::Font::setDefaultResourceGroup("fonts");
   CEGUI::Scheme::setDefaultResourceGroup("schemes");
   CEGUI::WidgetLookManager::setDefaultResourceGroup("looknfeel");
   CEGUI::WindowManager::setDefaultResourceGroup("layouts");
   CEGUI::ImageManager::setImagesetDefaultResourceGroup("imagesets");


Code: Select all

//this code creates a button
      CEGUI::WindowManager &wmgr = CEGUI::WindowManager::getSingleton();
      CEGUI::Window *sheet = wmgr.createWindow("DefaultWindow", "CEGUIDemo/Sheet");
      CEGUI::Window *quit = wmgr.createWindow("TaharezLook/Button", "CEGUIDemo/QuitButton");
      quit->setText("Quit");
      quit->setSize(CEGUI::USize(CEGUI::UDim(0.15, 0), CEGUI::UDim(0.05, 0)));
      sheet->addChild(quit);
      CEGUI::System::getSingleton().getDefaultGUIContext().setRootWindow(sheet);

      auto quitFunc = [](const CEGUI::EventArgs &)->bool {
         exit(0);
      };
      quit->subscribeEvent(CEGUI::PushButton::EventClicked,
         CEGUI::Event::Subscriber(&quitFunc));


Code: Select all

CEGUI::FileIOException in function 'void __thiscall CEGUI::DefaultResourceProvid

Have you forgotten to load a scheme using CEGUI::SchemeManager::createFromFile(..)?

I guess what it says is correct: the files are not in the specified path. Can't tell you anything other than that from a remote view.

Usually, this is because your datafiles folder is not where CEGUI expects it. If you use Visual Studio and just clicked "debug" or "run", the working directory is set "wrong". You can either set the Debug directory of VS to "$(OutDir)" or launch the executable manually.
The datafiles folder should be placed next to your main executable and I strongly recommend you to not change the directory layout unless you know what you are doing. For now, please just copy over the whole datafiles folder to your e.g. Debug directory. Also, you can have a look at one of the application templates and see how resource initialization is done there.

What lucebac said sounds correct, forgot about that very important aspect.

Did that solve your issue?
