Hi, I have been working with SDL for some time in C++ and want to make a simple game with it. However, the game needs some GUI Elements:
1. Buttons
2. Text Input
3. Labels (Text Output) (I can put this in w/ the library in its current state)
Is there a library or extension for implementing these with SDL? I can't do Win32 because i need the code to be as cross-platform as possible.

Thanks ahead of time.

Although I haven't used either of them myself, the GUI libraries I see mentioned most often are CEGUI and guichan.

I imagine one of these would work for your purposes, but for what it's worth, a GUI as simple as what you're describing is fairly easy to code oneself. If all you need is some simple text input and output and a few buttons, implementing it yourself might be as easy as (or easier than) incorporating an external library.
