RE: Windows position

Hi mikshaw,
Lua is no problem, but I'm a beginner of GUI programming ;-(
I'm currently have problems to find the correct methods for each widget-class.
General it is hard for me to understand new concepts of general GUI programming, but I try to ask questions just once ...

A murgaLua-GUI doc would be nice, but as you told me, a hard and long way...

Thanks for all your very useful tips and I try to spread them all over germany Big Grin
Bye
Christian

Depending on what you want to do, the documentation you need might be Lua, FLTK, or other (the official docs from the individual applications combined to build murgaLua). In this case, since you want to control widgets, you'd need to refer to the FLTK documentation, which is included with murgaLua. When you need Lua documentation, it can be found at lua.org.

Keep in mind that most of the FLTK documentation focuses on C++ syntax, so you will probably find yourself doing some trial-and-error work in order to figure out the syntax needed for some parts of murgaLua. maybe you won't, but I certainly do. Some things seem to be inconsistent, and I have trouble sometimes deciding on whether to use, for example, fltk<dot>something or fltk<colon>something. I'm sure it's logical to people who are "true" programmers, but personally I don't get it =o)
Ideally a complete murgaLua-specific doc would be awesome, so there would not need to be any guessing or translation, but unfortunately very few people actually get any sort of satisfaction from writing documentation.
