With GLUT, I want to make toolbar, sort of like in adobe photoshop, or paint, or any image viewing/editting/creating program, where u click on buttons to change between zoom/cut/pain/draw/selecting modes.

Could someone point me in the right direction? The only stuff I seem to be able to find right now are how to make menu bars and submenus.


You may want to reconsider your choice of GUI :slight_smile:

GLUT is very basic especially if you want to do more elaborate things like build a GUI.

There’s also plib which has a GUI I’ve never tried, it’s supposed to be minimalist:

How long do u think it would take to modify a program to have a different type of GUI? Is it possible to do it with GLUT?

If it is possible to do it with GLUT, i think I prefer to stick with GLUT (^_^). I am currently learning/working for someone, and I don’t know if he wants me to completely change the format.
