Feature requests / TGUI builder 0.8.5 - missing vertical slider
« Last post by Hexile on 10 August 2019, 20:45:27 »
Hi. The option is missing. did it get removed from the builder?

Also; If possible, it would be nice if we could set the angles of scrollbars, sliders, etc.

Thanks fot the help, will try your solution to change the text.

Fot the future I like most the first solution as it is more clear and more consistent with the other functions.
The image would be a great update, but better would be to have a checkbox.

Best regards

My need for std::bind is a bit more complex than this example
If you had tried a simple case first then maybe it could have saved you some time with trying different things :).
After some debugging, trying to compile the code you described, I decided to just check the most basic code that you mentioned at the top. It didn't work either.

It turns out there is a good reason why it isn't in the 0.8 tutorial, it simply no longer works.
The reason it used to work was more of a side-effect of the way my internal code worked, it was never an intended feature to have (although I did document it in the tutorial after I found out about it). All parameters passed to the connect function were passed to std::bind inside the signal class. The getNum function being called at the moment func1 is called was a consequence of passing an std::bind argument as parameter to an std::bind call. In 0.8 I don't use std::bind anymore however. I've learned that lambdas are both faster and more powerful and saw no more use to rely on std::bind in my implementation.

The quick solution should have been to just surround everything with the std::bind that used to be inside the connect function...
button_image->connect("MouseEntered", std::bind(&TitleMenuButton::ButtonFocused, this, std::ref(button_selected), std::ref(current_button), std::bind(get_button_function, current_button)));
... but that unfortunately doesn't work. My new signal system in 0.8 doesn't seem to like the argument being a bind expression (which acts really weird). (EDIT: Although I don't recommend doing it like this, I do consider this a bug. So I will try to change the code soon so that the above line does work.)

I would recommend just not using std::bind at all:
button_image->connect("MouseEntered", [&,get_button_function]{ ButtonFocused(button_selected, current_button, get_button_function(current_button)); });

In the above line, the get_button_function is passed as a copy to the lambda because unlike the other parameters it is a local variable and thus a reference to it won't be valid anymore when the MouseEntered event occurs. The "&" makes sure the other parameters do get passed as a reference.
Help requests / Binding function calls in tgui::SignalWidgetBase::connect()
« Last post by Hexade on 09 August 2019, 21:24:46 »

I am having trouble understanding how to use std::bind to call a function as part of tgui::SignalWidgetBase::connect(). I was looking at the "Introduction to signals" tutorial for version 0.7 where you show this example (It's probably worth noting that I am using version 0.8.5):

Code: [Select]
int getNum() { return 5; }

void func1(int i);
void func2(int value);

picture->connect("clicked", func1, std::bind(getNum));
button->connect("pressed", func2, std::bind(&tgui::Slider::getValue, slider));

My need for std::bind is a bit more complex than this example and this is my first time using std::bind so I have been spending the day learning about std::bind and std::function. This is what my function looks like at the moment:

Code: [Select]
void TitleMenuButton::SetFunctions(bool& button_selected, std::string& current_button, std::function<Button&(std::string)> get_button_function) {

button_image->connect("MouseEntered", &TitleMenuButton::ButtonFocused, this, std::ref(button_selected), std::ref(current_button), std::bind(get_button_function, current_button));
button_image->connect("MouseLeft", &TitleMenuButton::ButtonUnfocused, this, std::ref(button_selected), std::ref(current_button));


This function belongs to the TitleMenuButton class that stores a tgui::Picture (button_image), the function simply calls connect() on the tgui::Picture and connects the TitleMenuButton::ButtonFocused() and TitleMenuButton::ButtonUnfocused() functions. The issue lies with my attempt at using std::bind to bind the function ButtonList::GetButton().

This function belongs to a ButtonList class that stores x amount of TitleMenuButtons. It is designed to make creating the buttons much faster and easier, so this TitleMenuButton::SetFunctions() function is called from within the ButtonList class as such:

Code: [Select]
std::function<Button&(std::string)> get_button_function = std::bind(&ButtonList::GetButton, this, std::placeholders::_1);
button->SetFunctions(is_focusing_button, current_button, get_button_function);

Lastly, the function I am attempting to bind is ButtonList::GetButton() that returns a reference to one of the buttons stored within the ButtonList.

Code: [Select]
Button& GetButton(std::string button_name) { return *; }

std::unordered_map<std::string, std::unique_ptr<Button>> button_list;

So the idea behind all of this code is that the ButtonList creates and stores instances of TitleMenuButton and keeps track of which button is currently "active" (Being hovered over with the mouse / keyboard). During the creation process of the TitleMenuButtons we need to connect functions to the various signals to give them functionality. Now on to the actual error I am getting.

Visual Studio seems to like the code and doesn't produce any red squiggly lines, however when I try to compile it I receive 2 errors.

'operator __surrogate_func': no matching overloaded function found
Failed to specialize function template 'unknown-type std::Mem_fn<void (__thiscall TitleMenuButton::* )(bool &,std::string &,Button &)>::operator ()(_Types &&...) noexcept(<expr>) const'

Both of these errors occur in signalimpl.hpp at lines 89 and 88 respectively. Unfortunately both of these error messages are lost on me and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I have tried a plethora of methods of passing the function from an instance of ButtonList to an instance of TitleMenuButton but none of them have worked. This seems to be my best attempt so far and I don't think I am that far off from getting it working. However the error messages that point me to TGUI files don't help me much.

If you need to see more of the code then just ask although I hope I have covered everything. Thanks.

The color not being updated when disabling and enabling the widget has actually been fixed already. Try building the version from github:

is there a way to change the menu item text?
This is currently not possible. You will have to remove the items and add them again (either all menus or just the menu in which an item needs to change by calling removeMenuItem for each item).
If you want to have spaces in front of all items and only have the star in front of one item then you need to update multiple items anyway and recreating the menu might not be such a bad solution.

If it were possible to change an individual item text, how would you want the API to look like?
menuBar->setMenuItemText("menu", "menuItem2", "> menuItem2");
menuBar->setMenuItemText("menu", "> menuItem2", "menuItem2");
menuBar->setMenuItemText("menu", 2, "> menuItem2"); // 2 being the index
menuBar->setMenuItemText("menu", 2, "menuItem2");

The first one looks nicer to me, but for the second one you don't need to care what the current text is to change it. On the other hand, the first one would be easier to extend to sub-menus.

Purely as information on how to improve the MenuBar in the far future, would you still need this feature if it were possible to display an image in front of menu items (either a unique image per item or just a single "selected" image that is used in front of any item that gets selected)? Or if there were optional checkboxes in front of items?

Can you provide MCVE (Minimal Complete Verifiable Example) for reproducing the behaviour?

Help requests / menu bar colors when enabled/disabled
« Last post by roccio on 09 August 2019, 10:44:44 »
I have a little problem with the menu bar.

I have created a menu

Code: [Select]
auto menu = tgui::MenuBar::create();
menu->getRenderer()->setTextColorDisabled(sf::Color(229*1, 131*0, 4*0));

and then in the main window loop I use two keypresses for enable or disable the menu:

Code: [Select]
if (event.key.code == sf::Keyboard::A)
else if (event.key.code == sf::Keyboard::S)

The menu is correctly enabled/disabled by the two events, but the problem is that when disabled the menu ites are rendered in RED, but when I reenable the menu the items are again in red untill I move the mouse over them.

Is there something I miss to get the items of the correct color?

I just remembered that since v0.8.4 you can also just use the "Changed" signal instead of connecting to both checked and unchecked.
