I know it's not very complete, or even that useful, considering all the functions right now are just big wrappers for standard vc functions, but it might be useful to someone because all the functions are commented. More will come when I can figure out how to create a function that wraps a string to the contents of a window.


Bon Apetite!

Zod, looks neat. Haven't looked at your source yet, tho.

Anyways, why didn't you upload it to the site?

I wrap strings in my textbox demo.

Uploaded! I didn't see where you could, but now it's done. :D

I'm looking at the code for you string wrap function. Math is one of my low points, as is sanity. :D One of the things you could do to possibly speed up your library is, when you create a new text box, render it to a new image, and then just blit the image instead of creating the textbox anew each time. I don't know how much speed you'd actually gain, but who knows?

Someone needs to come up with a strings.vc for wrapping all functions relating to strings. I can certainly think of ONE example of a needed function! :D


Alrighty, after seeing your demo in action, I can safely say that there is no use in me continuing to add functions that deal with windows, as your library does them better by 500%, and is much more flexible to boot. I think I'll focus on functions that have to do with... menus. :D That way, someone can use both of our libraries without much overlap.
