imgui_stdlib is not being detected #36

I found myself using imgui_stdlib.h file which contains some overrides for using std libraries with ImGUI. However Magnum does not include those when finding components. A quick fix that worked for me was:

File FindImGui.cmake
Line 101: foreach(_file imgui imgui_widgets imgui_draw imgui_demo **imgui_stdlib**)

Next a new entry will appear in cmake to point to that file. Hope that helps someone.

Hi, thanks for the report!

I tried to do this in a way that doesn't make the whole ImGuiIntegration library depend on the imgui_stdlib.cpp file, since this particular STL compatibility is not used there. I came up with the following, currently only in the next branch -- first take the updated FindImGui.cmake from here, then in your CMakeLists add this:

find_package(ImGui REQUIRED SourcesMiscCpp)


target_link_libraries(your-app PRIVATE ImGui::SourcesMiscCpp)

After that, you should be able to

#include <misc/cpp/imgui_stdlib.h>

and everything should work as expected. Though I'm not sure if the misc/cpp prefix makes sense, maybe I'll make it so only #include <imgui_stdlib.h> is needed. What do you say? Can you test on your side and confirm it works? Also, suggestions welcome :)

Yes that works, thanks for the fix. The stdlib for imgui is still in development and has little useful functions at this point, however if it becomes larger, it will make sense to make ImGUIIntegration dependent on that file. At this point, this would work.

Thanks for the confirmation! 👍 3a2cb98 is now in master.

I'm not sure if @ocornut wants to depend on STL too much, so I assume it will stay like this for quite a while. But who knows. If it will later make sense to have it directly, then I can make that change, of course :)
