opengl GUI

Hi all!

The glut only provides simple GUI functionality,i.e. it does not provide check box, button and radiobox etc.

what do you use to develop complicated opengl GUI application? dose anybody use glui? how is glui? thanks.


I use MFC. If you’re looking for a nice, platform-independent API, I would suggest wxWindows.

Of course, that may be because the wxWindows API looks a lot like MFC…

I use GLUI v2 for a proof of concept app. It is a little buggy, but I can live with that. It is very easy to use and that’s why I like it. I don’t know MFC and don’t want to put in the time learning it at the moment, but I will in the future. GLUI will build complex GUI’s but it seems the more you put in, the more buggy it is. Maybe GLUI v1 is better …

Hope that helps.
