Though I am not new to coding, I am new to making a GUI and most visual things. Does anybody know where to find a good tutorial, or could somebody give some examples or help me with some tips on where to start with a GUI and/or title screen? Just thinking of a simple click and place, or click/drag and place at the moment. Something like Warcraft/Star Craft.

I am also using Dark GDK at the moment. C++

This is for DB Classic/Pro, but it might give you some ideas:

Oh TDK! Thank you for the tutorial! I've seen some of your other tutorials, and they have been very helpful so far. Is there an easy way to find your tutorials? There might be but I haven't searched very well for them.

I was also curious about how to change the pointer. And I have been trying to display the keyboard characters so I can then use them in different functions, but I can't seem to get them to display correctly. I would display my code but I am at school and forgot to grab my program this morning. :-|

@ TDK - cant find your DarkSprites project on the forums - is it going 'public' on the DBPro site or something?

a long time dabbler with DBC and DBPro with no actual talent but lots of enthusiasm...

They are all in the very first thread on the DarkBasic Discussion board.

Sorry - can't help there as I don't use Dark GDK. Try asking on the Dark GDK board.

I've responded to the thread on the 2D All The Way board.
