Probably Carmack, but best known from the Duke Nukem: Forever guys. ;)

Release date? Don't even think of it in a short time. :) That beast needs a lot of testing by hopefully a couple of developers. But I guess that the source code repository will be published soon.

Looking forward to it :D Keep up the (hopefully) good work ;)

I wouldn't mind helping out testing it, I need a proper GUI so bad its not even funny. :?

working on a tower defense so i really don't want to roll my own when it comes to buying/upgrading menus and the interface for all that stuff.

I've been procrastinating it for months! (though I got a lot of work done on the game because of it!)


As such I'm most definitely willing to help out any way I can!

Thank you. The problem I see is at least that when the first bunch of work is complete for SFGUI, you'll get a library with...

a) maybe bugs,
b) maybe a changing interface and
c) a default renderer for the beginning.

The default renderer (BREW) uses sf::Shapes for visuals, and you probably want your user interface to be of a better looking than that. ;) Nevertheless a second rendering engine, that uses sf::Sprites for the visuals (and therefore images), has already been planned, but of course it will take some time.

I'm happy that at least two developers are willing to help testing the library, that's great! But please keep always in mind that SFGUI is under heavy(!) development, and the chance that things will be changed massively is there (of course I try to avoid that by designing SFGUI properly before implementing, but problems arise everywhere ;)).

Some words regarding the progress:
The box sizer is completely finished now. It supports vertical and horizontal alignment, padding between packed widgets, a border width and the flags 'expand' (use as much space as possible) and 'fill' (fill out the complete assigned size). It's tested and behaves good so far. :)

The next steps are:
- sfg::Workspace: A class that manages an SFGUI context (to activate different renderers) but is also a container for sfg::Windows (mostly you'll start by creating a workspace and adding windows to it).
- SFML event handling: Theoretically completed, needs to be implemented now. It will happen in a way where you don't have to care about SFML events at all, but just use the widget's signals to connect your functionality.

When those two fat todos are done, I'll continue by writing a theme loader for loading renderer-specific properties, 1-2 more widgets and will then publish the repository.

A little sneak preview of the box sizers and buttons together with BREW rendering and first draft of SFML event handling in combination with SFGUI's signalling system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tazpl1ZBgvg

The most stuff is of course happening internally and you might think: "What the hell, that looked better the last time!" Yep, true, but it won't in some weeks. ;)

I just watched. And I want it. NOW! :D Really, I like that. Nice and neat. Congrat, and keep up the good work, Tank ;) (Except when the window oversized the screen... a part of me died then :))

You hopefully will never have so many widgets that a window doesn't fit onto the screen. :)

- Draggable widgets implemented (up to now sfg::Window for moving it around).
- Reworked eventing for container widgets (especially event hooking that took place in sfg::Widget before).
- Basic window style/behaviour flags (titlebar, background, resizable)

I can't believe how smooth the progress is going on. If it continues like it does now, then I think I'll get something ready to test for you in a not too far future.

I will post a new screencast when per-widget style properties and proper font management is implemented. You have maybe already recognized that the buttons look rather huge because they have no clue about how large the font is set in the style properties, so they use sf::Font::GetDefaultFont() to get the text metrics. So still some design questions to solve. ;)

"SFGUI is released under the terms and conditions of the GNU LGPL."

O:

I was expecting BSD licensed, since SFML is also BSD licensed. Oh well.

Oh. Well, I tend to think of everything as BSD-style vs GPL-style, since those are the two big ones. My bad.
zlib is just as well. The big thing for me is being able to ship it with BSD-licensed systems and being able to statically link to it in a closed-source application.

Since SFGUI hasn't been released yet, it's subject to change. :)

Update, additions:
- Window movement (made possible by implementing most of the eventing stuff, hooking etc. pp.)
- Per-widget properties to override the render engine's (or theme's) properties to make single widget look differently.
- Lazy update of requisition and allocation sizes to improve performance (reducing calls to render engine and other objects).
- Window styles (titlebar, movable, resizable, transparent).
- A loooot of internal modifications and additions.
