The “Window” object or class is the root of all controls. Window class, and a window can have any number of child windows. This tutorial is intended to get you started.

Crazy Eddies GUI System:Tutorials:Creating a scriptable interface using CEGUI

This tutorial assumes DirectX9, so we create a DirectX9 renderer:. The versions available from the CVS repository are not always the easiest to compile, since a lot of things change regularly! Anything that goes wrong will be shown, and the window will stay open. CEGUI works with image sets instead of individual images.

Obviously you’re likely to want to play around with the areas to get the desired positioning and what have you the required PropertyDefinition elements for the labels are not shown here. You can also swap the GUI sheet seamlessly by calling setGUISheet with whatever sheet you want to swap to though be sure to hold onto a pointer to the current sheet if you wish to swap it back.


In my own project this Lua script is calling about ten other Lua files together I prefer things separated from each other and is loading 3D Models, Textures, Configuration of units – and of course the interface!

Objects have properties as well. Should it be possible to add objects by script or not?

Firstly, we will need to add tytorial header of the element we want to put into the Application – in this case a ‘Push Button’. This root object is a “window” object.

Window which will contain all of the widgets we will be creating. This window has an imagebox and on top of this imagebox is a button. We can rewrite this in a more readable way demonstrating the singleton variables once more: No need to recompile when adding a simple model during the first initial ‘hard coding’ phases of a project if you share my bad habit.

Search Wiki by Freetags. This is the original version meant for C. It’s possible to use WindowManager:: Some of the readers might have experience with the creation of their own GUI. This is an example using the Window events which you might have already in your application’s WindowProc handler: Even registered events can tell the event cdgui to cgeui up by returning ‘false’ in the event handler even if it actually did something.


The event will simply stop now from bubbling up although the window was already the end of the yutorial. But, the include files still need to be referenced somewhere.

The code simply gets a variable to the root window element everything will become a child of this ‘parent’. This is done by cegul calling a few functions. This may seem like a pain at first, but in reality very little code is required to make this tutoria. This tutorial comes with some sample code to experiment with, and shows various of the techniques demonstrated in this tutorial.

Also notice the ‘bool’ being returned.

Doing so is entirely optional, although the instructions here are based on that layout. Creating an interface using Lua will follow next.

But, extracting the files to the right places is a tedious job about different directories and therefore I’ve included them in the same directory as the tutorial. The same is not true for mouse buttons.

You still add a seperate camera and viewport for your Ogre scene. There are quite some events available, but they all share one single property: Most cegiu programmers that visit this wiki are independent developers. Additional filenames are appended using “.
