Overview

The DMC Corona UI library is collection of advanced widgets for the Corona SDK. They can be used in any size or type of application.

The module architecture is heavily object-oriented, but each module can be used with any style of coding. The OO-nature ensures that the modules can be easily re-used or modified as necessary.

Features

  • Robust and efficient widgets
  • Cascading style sheets
  • Powerful controls

There are examples and documentation available for the modules. Look in the examples folder for available examples which can be run directly in the Corona SDK. Documentation and some simple screencasts of examples are online at: docs.davidmccuskey.com
