Hi folks, Search is disabled, so I’ll post a question. Probably been asked a million time, so apologies in advance. I’m looking for a simply light weight GUI to add to my openGL app. I want something that will just let me spawn dialogs etc, not turn into an MFC clone. The base of my system will be SDL/openGL, I do not want to let a GUI framework handle the updates, the GUI should only handle its own updates (happy to multi thread, long as I can communicate with the framework somehow). Cross platform is a must to. I like FLTK (not sure it suites my needs yet), GTK looked a bit heavy. Any other ideas I could look into? Cheers ched

You can use the gui without using OGRE as well, as it has an opengl driver.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I'm going to investigate them when i get home from work! Had a quick look at the cegui, it looks quite neat really. Not sure about its size yet thought. Has anyone here used it and have any comments on it?

I had expected the QT, GTK etc suggestions, i'd not thought to look at purely opengl implemented GUI's. Are there anymore?

cheers

If you are looking for pure GL UIs i can recommend GLGooey.
Very nice API, skinnable.

It awesome, not to say the fact that its released under zlib/png license (a.k.a not GPL/LGPL "zealots" as stated in a recent post round these forums)
