This a tutorial can be used by the absolute FLTK beginner. In the course of the tutorial the most common widgets will be explained and you will gain a good. As you go through this tutorial, keep in mind that these are specific examples to help you see and learn FLTK. The most important piece of information you. I have posted the first (probably of several) tutorials about C++ and FlTk to help you do the project. These will be under Tutorials and the first.

The way to overcome this is by having two functions.

First I would like to say that callbacks in a class can only be static. Yes, FLTK will delete the children of the window when the window gets deleted or goes out of scope as in the first example.

The labeltype method sets the type of tutorlal. This might encourage you to learn console commands the true power behind Linux and maybe even makefiles. One imporatant thing to keep in mind though is that if you have global objects then using hide may not be a good idea as those objects will not have their destructors called since they were not created in the main function scope.


The maximum widget size is typically governed by the underlying window system or hardware.

File functions are called when data is ready to read or write, or tltk an error condition occurs on a file. This is the basis for GUI programming.

FLTK provides a pretty simple way to handle keyboard events. In the FLTK docs they are explained here. Callback functions only take two specific arguments so we can’t just keep adding input arguments to suit our needs.

The next line does the same thing but to the output widget. For most widgets the arguments to the constructor are:.


This is usually done using the -I option:. What happens as you drag the mouse? I am not your mother but I will teach you how to clean up after yourself in the next section.

In this example, myGroup would be the current group. Let’s look at another example. Manually calling redraw only when needed is one of the reasons FLTK is so fast. The x and y parameters determine where the widget or window is placed on the screen. Usually pointers are typed, in other words, you know the type of data to which they point. You can also specify typefaces directly.

Now, what does this callback function need to include. Flhk are the codes. Plus, don’t forget, since the second function is inlined there really is only one function call. By looking at the other button declarations, we can see how to declare a button. But you will see later when objects are allocated on the heap, it’s a godsend. FLTK automatically adds the new box to windowthe current grouping widget.


Notice the second parameter is optional. No more messy counting children or casting.

The newcap char array goes out of scope when the butcb callback function is finished. This is a consequence of making the wrapper class. Now lets look at how callbacks are done in classes. Tutoriap inheritance, you can override certain functionalities of each widget, and configure it to suit your own application, without the need to code everything from scratch.

We are not going to change anything about the window except for how it handles its events. So you will not see the change unless redraw is called. This means that the button is the first child of the window with index 0.
