Yay, GUI stuff seems to be working pretty well now. So here's a picture:

GUI stuff
(Click to enlarge)

And here's the XML file that describes it:

"1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
"1024" h="768">

"0" y="0" align="left">I like cakes. Here's some Chinese: 世界有很多语言

"1024" y="0" align="right">I like cakes. Here's some Russian: Мир имеет много языков

The first two text items (top left and top right) show unicode through UTF-8, the top button shows text clipping (Although not very well, admittadly), the second shows right-aligned text, and the third shows left aligned text.

Next up is making a proper window that can be dragged around, and probably scrolled too. Then I'll add more widgets like images and listviews - a listbox where you can put anything into an item. That should be fairly straightforwards, you could stuff an image and some text into an , and stuff that in a . A normal listbox would just be a listview with only text in it.

My 2 day bender is over now. I wasn't as drunk as I thought I was going to be, which was a pleasant surprise.

Anyway, me = gone.

EDIT: The forums seem to change the unicode stuff to HTML entities. Oh well. It's just actual chinese and russian in there. I should also point out that I have no idea what it says - I just copied it from a TinyXML example file. Anyone read Chinese or Russian around here?
