Mouse cursor never rendered

Postby armedturret » Mon Dec 16, 2019 19:13

While trying to implement CEGUI in my OpenGl and SDL based render engine, I came across the problem that the mouse cursor wouldn't render. I am testing on x64 build with a shared lib. I was able to get the inputs and the TaharezLookOverview.layout to work completely minus the aforementioned cursor.

Here is my GUI file that initializes everything:

Code: Select all

void GUI::setDefaultDirectory(std::string directory)
   //set a resource provider for loading CEGUI files
   CEGUI::DefaultResourceProvider* rp = static_cast<CEGUI::DefaultResourceProvider*>(CEGUI::System::getSingleton().getResourceProvider());

   //define all the default values
   rp->setResourceGroupDirectory("schemes", directory + "schemes/");
   rp->setResourceGroupDirectory("imagesets", directory + "imagesets/");
   rp->setResourceGroupDirectory("fonts", directory + "fonts/");
   rp->setResourceGroupDirectory("layouts", directory + "layouts/");
   rp->setResourceGroupDirectory("looknfeels", directory + "looknfeel/");
   rp->setResourceGroupDirectory("lua_scripts", directory + "lua_scripts/");

   //apply them to respective subsystems

void GUI::destroy()

void GUI::init()
   //init CEGUI
   m_renderer = &CEGUI::OpenGL3Renderer::bootstrapSystem();

I have a render loop for my program:

Code: Select all


glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE0, 0);
//render GUI

And here is where I set up what gui I want to display:

Code: Select all

//load a default scheme
//set a default mouse

CEGUI::WindowManager& wmgr = CEGUI::WindowManager::getSingleton();
CEGUI::Window* myRoot = wmgr.loadLayoutFromFile("TaharezLookOverview.layout");

I have remembered to do all the required input injection including the pulse every frame here:

Code: Select all

float time = (float)(SDL_GetTicks() - m_lastUpdate) / 1000.0f;

m_lastUpdate = SDL_GetTicks();

Any help would be greatly appreciated as to how the cursor is not rendering in any way.

Here is the log info as well:

Oh, I forgot to mention that I used an OpenGL debugger to test if the mouse was hidden and found there was no attempt anywhere to render it.

Sorry for the late response:

Do you inject the mouse position?

Does it work in the sample browser?

Have you tried looking at the application templates (might only exist on default branch afaik) for comparison? This might help
