CEGUI Noobie question

For help with anything that CEGUI doesn't offer straight out-of-the-box, e.g.:
- Implementation of new features, such as new Core classes, widgets, WindowRenderers, etc. ...
- Modification of any existing features for specific purposes
- Integration of CEGUI in new engines or frameworks and writing of new plugins (Renderer, Parser, ...) or modules

CEGUI Noobie question

Postby kungfoomasta » Wed Apr 06, 2005 08:34

I've started using OGRE for about a month now, and I've reached the point where I want to start learning to use CEGUI. The problem is, there aren't any tutorials (that I know of), and although the GUI demo works and I can view the source code, it doesn't work when I try and reuse the code to set up my scene.

What I'm wondering is if anybody can help me get started by posting some generic code that can display a window with a button on it (or something similar). I looked through the forum in the help section, but I guess everybody but me has mastered the art of creating windows with buttons and other things.

Thanks in advance, I'm sure this information would help other CEGUI beginners like me. ^_^

Hi.
I wrote another post some time ago with some simple example code.

Maybe you'll find it useful:

Thanks lindquist! You really saved me there. Anybody else who needs help getting started should look at that other post.

np, I'm glad you found it useful.
I'm not sure the guy who asked the question actually ever read my post!

I can tell you what I did to make it work (if I remember everything well). I'm using the Ogre Source 1.0.0 package and running on .NET 2003 (7.1). I downloaded the stable release of the source for CEGUI (cegui_mk2-0.2.0.zip) and installed it to my C:. I compiled the .NET project file

C:\cegui_mk2\makefiles\win32\VC++7.1\CEGUI.sln

(I had to do some things to get it to compile them all correctly, but forgot =( ). Then I just copied the

C:\cegui_mk2\Samples\datafiles

folder into my media folder. Then you should be able to use the code lindquist gave, just substitute the
"data/schemes/TaharezLook.scheme" to
"datafiles/schemes/TaharezLook.scheme".
(make sure and do the WindowsLook one also)
Also, I had to delete the (CEGUI::utf8*) in the defineFontGlyphs line.

Hope this helps, that's what I did to get it working on my system. My system layout is no where near organized, though..(I've recently started)
