Thanks. I'm still kind of new to dub so I didn't know this existed!
I'm glad there are multiple options that look like they'd do the job.

There are several bindings.

I have been using the minigui library and it's working well for me. Thank you for creating it. I decided to throw together a bar chart, but it has been was more complicated than I gave it credit for. I am breaking it up into multiple nested widgets.

The issue I'm having is that I don't understand how to assign bounds in the nested widget. I'm sure there's a very clean solution. I basically want a paintContent method but with the bounds dynamically assigned by the parent. My thought is:
1. Create a setBounds on the child
2. Call setBounds on the child from inside paintContent of the parent
3. Instead of using paintContent in the child, use paint and use the bounds specified there

but that seems kind of off because I pass the bounds from parent to child separate from having the bounds in the child and it is not intuitive that the bounds would always be set by the parent before the child is painted. If there is a more elegant solution, then I will use it. Otherwise, this solution will work fine with some comments.

I tried the solution I suggested and it did not work because the child would occlude the parent (which is in the comments now that I see it.)
I decided to stick to simpledisplay strictly and forgo using the minigui library for the time being, and that is working well.

Well the bounds given to paintContent just define your content area boundaries, relative to the nested widget. The content area is inside its own border. The actual position is assigned by the parent (the virtual function there is recomputeChildLayout, you can override that to arrange instead of letting it automatically fill the space).



I don't really know what exactly you have in mind for the bounds, but anything outside your widget area is going to be clipped anyway, so I think you really want to change that child layout computation.

yeah minigui's model is to tile the widgets; they aren't supposed to overlap (except their parent, but then they cover the parent)

Yeah, nested widgets are something i sometimes use btu more often then not, i'll make the whole display for a thing - say a graph - just be a single widget and paint it in there.

A simpledisplay window's paint code can generally be pasted into a single minigui widget's paint code without much modification (the minigui WidgetPainter actually is a subclass of simpledisplay's ScreenPainter)

The recomputeChildLayout method is the answer I was looking for.


You describe copying the paint method into the paint content method. I did the exact opposite and copied from the paintContent method to the paint method and it worked. I am getting pretty comfortable with using simple display, but I will probably look to minigui in the future. This application is just for me to use so I don't need interactive buttons and so forth.

Thanks for making these libraries available. I'm also using your sqllite and http2 modules so far. :)
