xSGE GUI Toolkit

xSGE is a collection of extensions for the SGE licensed under the GNU General Public License. They are designed to give additional features to free/libre software games which aren’t necessary, but are nice to have.

xSGE extensions are not dependent on any particular SGE implementation. They should work with any implementation that follows the specification.

This extension provides a simple toolkit for adding GUIs to a SGE game as well as support for modal dialog boxes.

To use this extension, you must call xsge_gui.init() sometime between the creation of the sge.dsp.Game object and the start of the game.

windows

A list of all windows that are currently handled by this handler.

You don’t need to modify this list manually. Instead, use xsge_gui.Window.show() and xsge_gui.Window.hide() to add and remove windows from this list, respectively.

Return the window that currently has mouse focus. The window with mouse focus is the one which is closest to the front that is touching the mouse cursor.

Return None if no window has focus.

xsge_gui.Window

class xsge_gui.Window(parent, x, y, width, height, title='', background_color=None, border=True)[source]

xsge_gui Functions

xsge_gui.init()[source]

Prepare this module for use. This function in particular creates the sprites and fonts it uses for windows and widgets. Because of this, it must not be called until after a sge.dsp.Game object has been created.

xsge_gui.show_message(parent=None, message='', title='Message', buttons=('Ok', ), default=-1, width=320, height=None)[source]

Show a message and return the button pressed.

Arguments:

  • width – The width of the xsge_gui.MessageDialog object created.
  • height – The height of the xsge_gui.MessageDialog object created. If set to None, set the height automatically based on the space needed for the text.

Value returned is the index of the button pressed, where 0 is the leftmost button, or None if no button was pressed (i.e. the close button on the window frame was pressed instead).

See the documentation for xsge_gui.MessageDialog for more information.
