Display screen size window (GUI, Dialog box)? - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to write a simple app that will:

1. Fill a screen with a static document or list box

2. Fill the screen with several rows/columns (Grid)

3. Click a cell and enter some text, then display it.

Sounds too simple to even ask about, but I am having difficulty in creating the "backplane" for this app. It simply will display two words per row, and have 4-8 rows that fill the screen.

No replies yet, but more from my end.

I decided to try to create a GUI with 8 buttons. That is easy. But, then I need to click a button, get some input; and set the buttons displayed text to that input. I figured out how to make the FONT size big, and can do this. However the odd thing is that after I see the button text displayed, when I click another button the displayed text changes back to what it was before... wha? There is no code inside my loop (a case/switch statement to trap what button is clicked). How does that work?

HI @MTChristy98, maybe if you want to create a gui with a lot buttons, you can take a look at this post, it's an example of a quick code I often use.

Very nice, thank you. I will examine this and probably be able to use some. My task is a "reader board", running on a touch screen. When you touch a "field", a pop-up will ask for input which is then simply displayed as the name or title of that cell or button. Simple... they said.
