So what's the point of showing me a working piece of code?

At least now you have a code that works, that you can compare to yours and see what's different.

Here's the problem: sfText.GetPosition() != sf::Vector2f((int)position.x, (int)position.y) always returns false.  I'm also using the same position for the rectangle.

Why is it a problem that the position of the text is equal to what you assigned it?

Because it's drawing in a different position.

Yes... but you need to find the code that doesn't produce the expected results. It doesn't help to know that SetPosition and GetPosition work, I already knew that

What you should do is to replace the implementation of your DrawText and DrawRectangle with something as basic as the minimal example that you showed me (use hard-coded constants, etc.). Make sure it works as expected. Then gradually put back your initial code (use the function's arguments, etc.) until the bug shows up again.

This is a debugging strategy that always works when you don't know exactly the origin of the bug: find a working minimal code, and gradually fill the gap between the working code and the original (buggy) one -- you cannot miss the bug with this technique.

I don't have the time to do this for every bug which is posted on this forum, so it is really a huge help when people do it seriously by theirselves. And of course it highly increases the probability that the bug is fixed quickly

...

Explain how this works:

Code: [Select]
`void SFMLRenderer::DrawText(std::string& text, Point& position) {    Gum::Base::Size size = MeasureText(text);    Gum::Base::Rect rect = Gum::Base::Rect(position.x, position.y, 0, 0);        sf::Text sfText = sf::Text(text, sf::Font::GetDefaultFont(), 10);    sfText.SetColor(m_Color);    sfText.SetPosition(sf::Vector2f(rect.Left, rect.Top));    m_pTarget->Draw(sfText);}`

Edit:

I'm starting to think my compiler is messing things up because, this draws perfectly centered text.

Code: [Select]
`    Gum::Base::Size size = GetRenderer()->MeasureText(GetCaption());        Gum::Base::Point position;    position.x = GetGlobalPos().x;    position.y = GetGlobalPos().y;        position.y += (GetSize().w - size.w) / 2;    position.x += (GetSize().h - size.h) / 2;        if(m_Pressed) {        position.x++;        position.y++;    }    `

So whats the verdict here? That either out compilers are both messing up, or that we both made the same coding error and some where in the code is something that is screwing it up?

Laurent basically gave you the best answer. If you are able to create an example doing the same thing that works, then compare it to the code that doesn't work and see whats different..  Or better yet, just stick the working code into your program and if you still have the wrong effects then you know the problem lies elsewhere in your code.

Here is my small code with hardcoded values. I don't know how to make it any simpler. It still doesn't work though.

Main Function:
Code: [Select]
`#include <iostream>#include "tGUI.h"using namespace std;int main(){    sf::RenderWindow App(sf::VideoMode::GetMode(0), " ");    tGUI::Button button;    button.SetText("Text String");    while (App.IsOpened())    {        button.Render(App);        App.Display();    }    return 0;}`

Constructor:
Code: [Select]
`Button(){    canvas = sf::Shape::Rectangle(100,100,400,400, Color::White, 5, Color::White);    canvas.EnableFill(false);    canvas.EnableOutline(true);    canvas.SetPosition(100,100);    sf_text.SetPosition(100,100);}`

tGUI::Button::SetText( std::string ):
Code: [Select]
`void SetText(string c = ""){     text = c;     sf_text.SetText(text);}`

tGUI::Button::Render( sf::RenderTarget& ):
Code: [Select]
`virtual void Render(sf::RenderTarget& Window) const{    Window.Clear();    Window.SetView(Window.GetDefaultView());    Window.Draw(canvas);    Window.Draw(sf_text);}`

Results:

It's simple but not complete
And you could put everything in a single file with main(), so that we can easily test it.

This should be good.
What do you mean by incomplete?

Code: [Select]
`#include <iostream>using namespace std; namespace tGUI{class Button {string text;string sf_text;sf::Shape canvas;Button() {     canvas = sf::Shape::Rectangle(100,100,400,400, Color::White, 5, Color::White);     canvas.EnableFill(false);     canvas.EnableOutline(true);     canvas.SetPosition(100,100);     sf_text.SetPosition(100,100); }void SetText(string c = "") {      text = c;      sf_text.SetText(text); }virtual void Render(sf::RenderTarget& Window) const {     Window.Clear();     Window.SetView(Window.GetDefaultView());     Window.Draw(canvas);     Window.Draw(sf_text); }}}int main() {     sf::RenderWindow App(sf::VideoMode::GetMode(0), " ");     tGUI::Button button;     button.SetText("Text String");     while (App.IsOpened())     {         button.Render(App);         App.Display();     }     return 0; }`

EDIT: Added variable declaration.

By incomplete he means you haven't given him all the code needed to compile. In fact, the code you put in this post is completely invalid C++.
I use the latest build of SFML2

I updated the code for missing two variable declarations, but I don't understand what else I'm missing.
Either I'm stupid or I'm missing something completely obvious. I severely hope I'm not stupid.

By incomplete I meant that I couldn't compile it (line 2: #include "tGUI.h", I don't have that file).

Looks good (didn't try to compile though -- but you should before posting it).
I don't see a declaration for canvas but I think it's a sf::Shape

I'll try this code as soon as possible. Do you confirm that it produces the same bug as shown in the screenshot above?

This is the same code, but I fixed the compiling errors that appeared. Sorry for causing you so much trouble over this code posting thing. :/
And I do confirm that this produces the same error.

Code: [Select]
`#include <iostream>#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>#include <SFML/System.hpp>using namespace std;namespace tGUI{    class Button    {        string text;        sf::String sf_text;        sf::Shape canvas;        public:        Button()        {            canvas = sf::Shape::Rectangle(100,100,400,400, sf::Color::White, 5, sf::Color::White);            canvas.EnableFill(false);            canvas.EnableOutline(true);            canvas.SetPosition(100,100);            sf_text.SetPosition(100,100);        }        void SetText(string c = "")        {             text = c;             sf_text.SetText(text);        }        virtual void Render(sf::RenderTarget& Window) const        {            Window.Clear();            Window.SetView(Window.GetDefaultView());            Window.Draw(canvas);            Window.Draw(sf_text);        }    };}int main(){    sf::RenderWindow App(sf::VideoMode::GetMode(0), " ");    tGUI::Button button;    button.SetText("Text String");    while (App.IsOpened())    {        button.Render(App);        App.Display();    }    return 0;}`
