Good suggestion, moved to FB.

Is there a good book, or tutorial for c++ game gui programming.


What API are you using for 2D or 3D graphics? Since "Game UI" is generally handled by the 2D component of whatever engine or Graphics API you're using, you'll want to start there specifically.

Have a look at the Ogre examples. They use something neat for gui, don't remember the name right now.

I wrote my own in OpenGL and posted it on my website, it isn't too difficult if you don't want to do really fancy things like autosizing of text or scrolling lists. If you do need those things then writing your own will take a lot more effort.
