I been looking at various GUI APIs and not really seeing much that is out there with a good tool set and works with SDL/OpenGL out of the box...

 

Anyone have any suggestions, would like a stand alone API not something like Unity ect... thanks!

You're probably looking for something like CEGUI. It's an extensive GUI system specifically designed to be used for games in combination with OpenGL/DirectX.

 

The project also includes CEED, a layout editor with several extra functionalities. I haven't done extensive testing on CEGUI, but it's most likely (more than) enough for your needs, although it takes some time to get used to it since it's a pretty large GUI system.

I would but I can get the binaries to work. I just want to grab an API e.g. SDL/SFML unzip and wham it works other than setup of VC++2012 directories to the libs and includes...

 

I am not seeing much out there sad...

I haven't tried it myself, but have you seen SFGUI? It's a GUI with widget layouts designed specifically for SFML.

Yeah I used it before when I was using SFML, but moved to SDL2... SFGUI currently only works with SFML and development of that lib is dead as far as I can tell, if not TOO slow last time I used it was year or more ago and still stuck in pre 1.0 version....

Oops, thought you said you wanted a "SFML/OpenGL" UI library. wacko.png
