We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
Ok, guys, please comment on whether you think its worth continuing this project and what should i change, or whether i should drop it at this and start something new (any ideas?)
I have started coding an apllication in processing, which is meant to make the process of coding a GUI using the G4P library simpler and easier, by allowing you to drag and drop wanted elements on to the screen, and adjusting their desired properties in a Visual Basic-like way. Afterwards you can auto-generate an output sketch, which will already contain the code that is needed to make the gui you created work. So far the current version - 1.0a - supports (look below for updates) creating and exporting a gui containing:
- Text Areas
- Text Fields
- Options and Toggle Groups
- Drop Lists
Also for any of the elements you can write you own code to be executed when any events triggered by them happen, or during void setup() or void draw(). When exported the code will be included in the programm.
Future updates are planned to include support of Glabels, Gpanels and GKnobs, as well as a better looking interface and also such features as code highlighting for the code you type and other utilities to make the development enviroment better. This is an early alpha test, so if you choose to download and try this tool out, I would be very greatfull if you submitted any bug reports to this forum thread. If you do, please include a description of what you were doing, a printscreen of bug/crash, and, if you are using the 64 bit version - all the text from the console.
You can download the current version of the tool at:
