PostPosted: Sat Jan 17, 2004 1:28 pm   Post subject: Button hiding in complex windows

It's me again..(i know ur all happy to hear me talk again) Laughing , anywayi am making a program with multiple windows taht open and close. I have a menu, when they click on any of the things in the menu, it opens a new window.. now i have teh buttons that are to appear in the windows declared tehn hidden at teh very beginning of teh code, then when the new window is opened, i call GUI.Show. It shows the buttons but they are inactive.... i don't know why...it worked before wheen i called the buttons right then instead of at the top, but then when i wanted to GUI.Hide them after a button was clicked i couldnt because they were not declared..so you see teh problem.. i don't know if it has something to do with the buttosn being drawn is a seperate window.. and i do have the GUI.ProcessEvent running so its not htat...any help would be apreciated.. Exclamation

People are trying to help Boarder, they dont know what your doing in your program , at least we actually give sugestions , just a simple , " ahh i tried that already , any other way to do it ?" , would have done keep the flames andemotions on the down low , that how my threads get ruined i HATE it , Very Happy Very Happy but anywho , why dont you post the code so i can mess around with it , its hard to fix what you cant see ( well for me )

how was i flamming??? i said i know more advacned programming then that... i don't see how anyone can see that as flamming, and i think anyone whos asking about hiding and showing buttosn has learned or been told about forwarding procedures...

now be warned.. u need to create a file first called "runsys"..or u can delete the actual loading section so it dosen't search for the file before it is screted...becasue it runs off of variables in it...

I personally don't like Turing's GUI, so I don't use it. But when I do use it, and it gives me a mess, like opening multiple windows and have separate GUI in each window, I always like to declare the GUI buttons, menus, sliders, etc, and whenever I don't use it, I GUI.Dispose it. And when I want to use it again, I declare it again. It might take some more lines, but it usually doesn't mess with your program if you kill the thing as soon as you are done finishing using it. This is true especially if you have stuff happening all over.

but i can't gui.dispose unless i declare it at the top... and i do it does not run becaucse a problem i cannot see, if i declare the buttons as i got and need them it works. until they appear whn i du nwant them to, and i GUi.Dispose/GUI.Hide but it says the buttons has not been declared, and i have to have the procedures where GUI.Hide is called above the actual button call...actually.. if they are all forwarded i shouldn't have to.. should i....hmmmm
