GfxWidgets - (Graphic Widgets for wxWidgets)

Post by aquawicket » Fri Oct 31, 2008 5:37 pm

GWidgets was created to easily manage replacing native controls with graphic based controls such as Bitmaps and .XPM files.

*Componets
----------

GButton - A graphic based button that supports bitmaps and xpm images. GButton can accept multiple images for mouseover and click effects and can generate a GButtonEvent on clicks.
Image

GCurve - A grid style plot graph for creating curves. This class is still in early stages.
Image

GImage - A basic way to auto create a panel and load an image onto it. Supports bitmap images and .xpm images.
Image

GKnob - A rotary knob that can be used for adjusting volumes and such. Supports mouse wheel for rotation.
Image

GMeter - A VU meter with a built in global timer for animation.
Image

GNumberBox - A text box that can be set to a number within a range. Supports keyboard, arrow keys, and mouse wheel inputs.
Image

GScrollBar - A graphic replacement for the ordinary scrollbar. This class is still in early stages.
Image

GSlider - A slider control much like a volume slider. Supports keyboard and mouse wheel input as well.
Image

GText - A class to display custom font and styled text. This class is still in early stages.

GToggle - A graphic based checkbox. This class is still in early stages.



Note: Alot of these componets could use some love. If you happen to make changes or additions to any of the GWidgets code, please feel free to share your updates. :)

png support is something I would love to add and hope to do so in the near future.

Also, I use GIMP to create my XPM images and it seems to retain the depth @ 24bit for me no problem along with transparent if needed.

Basically just added GImageSelector

GImageSelector is a bitmap panel that when clicked allows you to browse and select the .bmp file to show on the panel. Kinda like an image swapper.


If anyone would like to help out, I'm having a rare assert issue with GMeter.
The thread about the issue is here.
http://forums.wxwidgets.org/viewtopic.php?p=98161#98161


P.S. If we like GWidgets, I'm thinking about creating a public SVN dedicated to adding graphic components to wxWidgets. I know wx was not made for non native controls, but I think the API is strong enough to do it.
