Designing a GUI library

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am currently writing a game ( a 2d isometric RPG...original aight) and i am about to implement a GUI. The GUI is supposed to be quite generic and it will be more generic than easy-to-use. Now, when looking at the java GUI and its design, i find it very nice (with all its listener and stuff), and it can be done in a nice way using the composite design pattern. Anyone have any experience in implementing a GUI library? are there any concrete problems, other patterns which are good to use and so on? any feedback and help is appreciated

If your coding this GUI in C++ I highly suggest reading a book called "Design Patters" before you implement the GUI. This book contains information and ideas on how to implement GUI systems, as well as other things which lead to extendability and re-use.
