GacUI

GPU Accelerated C++ User Interface, with WYSIWYG developing tools, XML supports, built-in data binding and MVVM features.

Read the LICENSE first.

New website:

This website is under construction, but it is somehow useable now. The old one (http://gaclib.net) is deprecated. After the new website is finished, I will update all domains to the new website.

  • The Tutorial section tells you how to begin using this marvelous GUI library.
  • The DEMOES section show you all demos using this GUI library.
  • The DOCUMENT section show you all simple documentation organized by C++ classes and functions.

Notice

The release of the GacUI project is put in vczh-libraries/Release. This GacUI repo is for development only. Don't download the code from here to use, because in most of the time it does not run.

Using this library requires you to use C++ source files directly in

All other files are for librari development only.

Content

This GUI library provides the following features:

  • Develop your GUI using pure C++, Workflow script, XML or even JavaScript (under construction)
  • Cross-platform abilities.
  • Rich control library. Container controls supports MVC and virtual list mode.
  • Control template system. You can write your own
  • GPU acceleration.
  • XML resource supports.
    • You can use the provided GacGen.exe to generate multiple XML files with binary resources (images) into a compressed binary format.
    • This program will also generate C++ code behind for you. You can fill event handlers (but we suggest you use MVVM and Data Binding instead) in generated C++ files.
    • If you update your UI, GacGen.exe will merge your modification in C++ code and modification in XML together to generate new C++ code behind. Your update will still exist.
      • NOTE: You will see a very obvious mark USERIMPL(/* ... */) in the generated code. Here is where you want to add your code. All your modification outside of these places will be discarded on the next GacGen.exe run.
  • MVVM and Data Binding.
    • You can define interfaces that required to build your own MVVM pattern in XML and GacGen.exe will generate the C++ interface declaration for you.
    • You can also use Workflow expressions in Data Binding and statements in event handlers (instead of writing C++ code in code behind).
