Postby Rackle » Mon May 01, 2006 07:44

I've Wikied a presentation of every widget and an introduction of their usage. Hopefully it can be useful to others.

Excellent! I assume you have created this for the cegui "head", right?

No, that was for the current release, the most easily accessible one. I'll update what needs updating once 0.5.0 is out, unless someone else does it first 8)

staticText->setText("Red StaticText");
staticText->setTextColours( colour(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f) ); // Red text
staticText->setFormatting(StaticText::HorzCentred, StaticText::VertCentred); // Center the text

was upgraded to v0.5.0 like this

Code: Select all

DefaultWindow* staticText = static_cast<DefaultWindow*>(winMgr.getWindow("StaticText"));
staticText->setText("Red Static Text");

So now that you're using strings instead of enumerations how do I convert the string to an enumeration when I need it?

Code: Select all

const CEGUI::String &horizFormatting="WordWrapLeftAligned"


to

Code: Select all

TextFormatting::WordWrapLeftAligned

unfortunately that code is in the property class. there is no helper.

You can grab the snippet from WindowRendererSets/Falagard/src/FalStaticTextProperties.cpp though

I think you mean CEGUIStaticTextProperties.cpp, the set and get functions
void HorzFormatting::set(PropertyReceiver* receiver, const String& value)

This wiki page has been upgraded to the 0.5 release. TabPane is replaced by DefaultWindow and SetWindowPosition, SetWindowWidth and SetWindowHeight have been changed by removing 'Window' from the method names.

menu and popup menu are finally added. Well, not directly in Widget Galore, as there's too much text and code, but still there's a sample available somewhere.

The next step could be to go back to each widget and create a separate Wiki for each, providing more text and code for each.
