Clearing windows

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

Clearing windows

Postby EDarkness » Tue Aug 02, 2005 12:47

There are two things I'm having a tough time doing...

1. hiding windows
2. destroying windows

How would one go about doing either of those things? I've read the docs, but I can't understand them. :( Anyone have any tips?

to hide a window, use this:

pWindow->hide();

where pWindow is a pointer to any window

to destroy a window u can use

CEGUI::WindowManager::getSingleton().destroyWindow( pWindow /*or just a string containing window name*/ );

Thanks. For hiding, does that also work for buttons, static windows, edit boxes, etc.?

Beware of destroying windows that currently have an event firing. It will crash your program, and its a pain to track down.

This should no longer be an issue as CEGUI has a dead-pool as of 0.3 if I remember correctly.
