This a tutorial can be used by the absolute FLTK beginner. In the course of the tutorial the most common widgets will be explained and you will gain a good. As you go through this tutorial, keep in mind that these are specific examples to help you see and learn FLTK. The most important piece of information you. I have posted the first (probably of several) tutorials about C++ and FlTk to help you do the project. These will be under Tutorials and the first.

Everything else requires a manual call of redraw. Now lets look at how callbacks are done in classes. The application may then ignore the events or respond to the user, typically by redrawing a button in the “down” position, adding the text to an input field, and so forth.

This program just copies whatever is in “In” to “Out” when “Copy” is pressed. Take a look at the code. So you will not see the change unless redraw is called.

File functions are called when data is ready to read or write, or when an error condition occurs on a file. At this point you should fltj a cursor blinking in the editor window. The difference being that my copy button would have been the widget to resize both horizontally and vertically. But once people spend the time to learn it, they seem to really like it. This tutorial is based on: Common Widgets and Attributes [Next].

Here we see how to make user-defined types of variables tutirial a window and a point on the screen. They both have the same name but are overloaded with respect to their return and input parameters. The author of the video is Greg Ercolano. We are not going to change anything about the window except for how it handles its events.


EventWindow int width, int height. Setting the current group to NULL will stop automatic hierarchies. Then we create a box with the “Hello, World!

Callbacks are functions that are called when the value of a widget, a button in this case, changes. As flti go through this tutorial, keep in mind tutoriql these are specific examples to help you see and learn FLTK.

Feel free to try altering other aspects of the widgets such as labelcolor, label, labelsize, etc. So I get the value of the input and set it to the label of the button. FLTK automatically adds the new box to windowturorial current grouping widget.

See if you can follow what is occurring on the screen and how it is being accomplished in the code. Notice the garbage the label displays!

Note that in this particular case it is unneccessary as the methods called on ” b ” are all of the base widget class members. This second inlined function has the actual callback code.

The other is to call hide on all windows which will cause Fl:: We see how to define a basic minimal widget superclass and four corresponding subclasses: Although it’s already pretty stable this tutorial is about 1. Finally, the last line gets the value from the input widget and sets it to the value of the output widget. Since these pointers are public I can access them outside of the class if I need to. Whereas, in my case everything in the window is resizeable.


They are the method for having member function callbacks. BTW it’s good convention, for code readability, to end or start callback function names with ‘cb ‘. Then you can stream it from Greg’s site.

However, the button continues to exist in the main scope. Usually an event is a mouse click, keyboard pressed etc. I generally try to name the callback function something intuitive. Finally, you can use the fltk-config script to compile a single source file as a FLTK program:.

The resulting program will display the window in Figure 4. This is a very beautiful aspect of FLTK. You can name the function anything you like.

I have his permission to mirror the video. FLTK also supports idle, timer, and file pseudo-events that cause a function to be called when they occur. Let’s look at a way to make a window and a simple button.

C++ / FlTK Tutorial

Hence, I have access to both the calling button and the input widget. Another quick and easy way to end the program is to call exit 0.

I must warn you that this is not a good way to do widget communication. Ftk for Linux users: The parameters indicate the button keeps it’s position but the width is doubled from 70 to It is not as important that you create the specific files that are mentioned in this tutorial.
