I was wondering if anyone has created some good functions to handle some menu type items.
For example, I need functions to handle:
Drop-down menus
Check boxes
Radio buttons (multiple choice)
Text boxes
User Intry text boxes
anything like that

If not I will be programming some general user functions like these. If you are interested in them, what parameters would you like to see:
Ex
MakeDropDownMenu(x, y, xend, yend, title$, etc.)

Or if you know of a good way to program these, but don't want to do the trouble would you mind sharing some tips?

well kentaree has got some pretty nice window functions going, ironhoof made a pretty sweet VisualDB which i think he's still waiting for my scripter.
There are one or two which i've noticed appearing from the woodwork so there are a good few about.

Raven,
Is Ironhoof done with it or is there a working version?
If he is, do you know where to get it?

well version 1 is done and within these forums somewhere, infact i think there was a version 2 released ...
VDB was to be version3 but i think he's kinda tied up at the moment

Development is a bank convention for me, Making the RPGDTE
and the dark basic GUI system, However i wor on them both evenly. my GUI supports:
CheckBox
Radio Buttons (2 graphical styles)
Draggable windows
Buttons
ListBoxes
TextSlots
Dials
Shifters
VScrollers
HSCrollers
ToggleButons vertical and horizontal
Active Clocks
ColorWheels
REAL WINDOWS icon links
bitmapped Icon buttons
PictureBoxes
Labels
Links
Menu system for each window you make
Dockable function libraries
Meter Bars
PlotBoxes
ColorBars
and i can keep going on what the library has. The only thing it currently dosnt have is a FULL multiLine text box which im adding

The windows are schemeable and there is two diffrent kinds of window you can have rounded or classic indows look alike. Not to mention the Master lib that creates the windows supports commonly used mathimatical and time related functions which makes creating new controls VERY easy you can even make rounded buttons with a rounded clickale region instead of square "using a function i made a long time ago and have been passing around" its very neat and very conservable in space cause you difine what you need to use.

BW this library is avalable imeadiately IronHoof2@wmconnect.com e-mail me

Wow,

Ok, I will email you soon, I just wish that I had something to give in return, but I am just a newbie.
Thanks Ironhoof
