Awesome, I see a lot of talk about different GUI libs. And wether some of them are worth using or not. But this looks like the best one i've seen:)

Looks great!

I think there is one bug with the demo: The "Change List Type" button in the list resizes the buttons to be very large. I'm not sure if this is what you meant to do.

One suggestion: Upon Mousover, the X button should change color or have a little box around it. This way the user knows the bounds.

Thats the way the list object works. It's because the buttons have to assume the height of the list object when it's display type changes to horizontal. You can keep the buttons from doing that by setting doing this:

Code: Select all

button:SetRetainSize(true)

Good idea. I'll probably add that in the next commit.

Very nice and complete GUI system. Congrats!

Input system works nice.

Two suggestions.
1. Tabs are scrollable, so you should make the Tablist also scrollable via mouse wheel.
2. Offer the option to close "widgets" via right mouse click. It's common in ultima online and i like this very much, because it's faster than clicking X.

I was planning working on a GUI too...Actually I didn't code anything yet, just working on the design and widgets components i will have to mimic.
But your work is truly amazing...It seems so complete, for a alpha release.
I downloaded it, and i'll give a try soon.
The wiki is nice, I took a quick look.

By the way, did you used a specific template for your personal website (I mean =http://nikolairesokav.com]nikolairesokav.com ? I do love the design, so simple but efficient).

By widgets do you mean the frame objects? Also, can you right click anywhere on the object to close it?

Thanks! I've been working really hard on this library and I'm hoping that eventually it will become the go-to library for GUI needs in LÖVE.

Nope, I did my whole site myself. Thanks though, I'm glad you think it looks good!

Yes the frame objects. (In UO it's called a "Gump"). I'm not sure. But i think the right mouse button is currently unused (maybe exclude input fields). So, why not? This way users can use the guisystem a lot faster.

Very impressive. I like it! :)
Looks really great.
This could help a lot if someone is making a level editor.
