digitalmars.D - D Forms Library

D Forms Library, or DFL, is my new Win32 windowing library. Check it out:
www.dprogramming.com/dfl.php . Here's a little info from the page:

With DFL you can:
  * Create and manage your Windows GUI application with a simple,
object-oriented interface.
  * Attach event handlers to many objects, such as controls, forms, and
menus, for practically any event.
  * Dock and anchor controls on the parent form, so resize code isn't
needed.
  * Use sockets that do not block the GUI thread.
  * Much more!

DFL should also appeal to .NET programmers, and hopefully persuade them to
try out D.

I don't know .NET from .COM, and I think it looks great!

I don't really know anything about linux GUI programming, so I don't even know if it's possible with this library. I'll look into it sometime.

No problem... just curious. Maybe if DFL turns out really good, others might take on the job. Just curious to know of any cross-platform plans, that's all. Thanks, John

Hmmm... might be interesting to look into a linux port while DFL is still small.

Before starting to code anything please also take a look at the way the Qt library solves the problem, which seems less advanced but I've found in practice more easy to use and understand and with better results: http://doc.trolltech.com/3.0/layout.html

Try connecting to 207.234.129.65 Perhaps it's a DNS error on your end. Sean
