Hi All,

I have decided to add another Prop to my current project to handle a little GUI, using a VGA monitor and a PS2 keyboard and mouse. I've been looking over the objects and so on, but I'm wondering if anyone has a GUI demo they could share? All I am looking for is to make a few buttons on screen and scroll through various screens of data, nothing fancy. Any examples out there? I know it will take me a while to re-invent the wheel. :)

You'll always have as many take-offs as landings, the trick is to be sure you can take-off again ;-)

I did the start of a gui a while ago for tvs using graphics.spin. Here's the thread http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=705864

This was discussed in this thread http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=682433 but it doesn't look like any code was proffered

I found this ---> youtube.com/watch?v=_MMAMRoURcI (http://youtube.com/watch?v=_MMAMRoURcI) video on youtube. I can't seem to find the corresponding code on the forum. Which bugs me, because I was planning to use this for a project that I'm working on right now.

Thanks for the pointers, that should give me a start. I'm suprised that there isn't such an example already, but if mine isn't TOO terrible, I'll let y'all know.
