version 0.3:
---------------------------------------------------------------
1) adjust the directory structure, more like DFL.
2) Some bugs fixed
3) clumsy Callback removed, implemented in other way.
4) Image support : gif jpg png winbmp winicon
5) Both UNICODE and ANSI version supported.
   default to UNICODE version, use -version=ANSI to override,
   recommend to use UNICODE
   TCHAR is aliased to char/wchar depends on the version ident you set,
   default to wchar since default version is UNICODE
6) some examples provided, illustrate how to use DWT widgets, delegates, 
images, layout



How to use

1) extracts all files to \dmd directory. (overwrite the \dmd 
directory),"\dmd" is where the DMD installed.

2) modify the sc.ini in \dmd\bin, to add the import path of dwt library
    change
    DFLAGS="-I% P%\..\src\phobos"
    to
    DFLAGS="-I% P%\..\src\phobos;c:\dmd\import" or
    DFLAGS="-I% P%\..\src\phobos;d:\dmd\import" if you install DMD in disk D

3) make sure "Derek Parnell"'s Build.exe is in your PATH envirement
    if you don't have Build.exe yet, download it here.
    http://www.dsource.org/projects/build/

4) navigate to \dmd\import\
   run "make-swt-lib.bat" then copy swt.lib(release version) and
   swtd.lib(debug version) to \dmd\lib

5) navigate to \dmd\packages\swt\examples\???
   and run the "run-build.bat" file or "run-dmd.bat"
   "run-build.bat" recompiles all the source code include the DWT source by 
Build
   "run-dmd.bat" compiles only example source and link to swt.lib

Try to rebuild the application use -version=ANSI, since Windows ME is not 
UNICODE APIs.
You need rebuild both the library and application.
Or just execute "run-build.bat" in examples\controlexample folder 
with -version=ANSI switch, Build will rebuild the full source code but get a 
little big size in executable.

I didn't test the library under windows 98 or ME, but both ANSI/UNICODE 
versions can run in Win2k/XP.

I'm a little late in mentioning this... been very busy... but: Shawn, Once again superb work! All the examples worked that I tested (Windows XP Pro). I was particularly impressed with controlexample.exe. It demonstrates the extensive range of features available to DWT. And it all works flawlessly! I have yet to test the actual compile/build process for the samples, but it's looking very good so far. Thanks for keeping the effort going. From what I can see DWT has huge potential in its current form. It looks to be more powerful than anything currently available for D, in the GUI bracket. Good to see that you cleaned up the callback system too. -JJR

Also, I just wanted to say that it's really nice to see the fast performance of DWT with D as compared to SWT and java. Java always takes so long to load the libraries and VM. The difference is readily apparant. -JJR

The only problem I've found so far is the canvas demo.
Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Start controlexample.exe;
2. Select the "canvas" tab and click "200x200";
3. Scroll the canvas either horizontally or vertically.
    Then the circle is not refreshed correctly.

I noticed this too. I'm not sure what's going on there either, but it looks like dmd/link automatically removes redundant symbols/objects from the final build. The build tool doesn't seem to do that: it seems to include every import referenced/compiled. I also noticed that if you try to use the build tool for some of the examples, the resulting executable is invalid. I not quite sure what to make of it. I ran across a similar problem with build while I was working on a dyndui package. -JJR

Oh! Can I do anything to help here? I don't want Build being an inferior choice. Can you show be the contents of these .BAT files and maybe the resulting .RSP and .KSP files that Build creates. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 20/08/2005 8:32:54 AM

One quick difference is that the run-dmd uses the -release and -O switches but the run-build doesn't. That would have an effect of the .exe sizes. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 20/08/2005 8:44:07 AM

You're right. That should describe the size differential. I didn't check that... sorry. I'm not sure why the executable didn't run, but maybe I should use the same compile flags and see if that makes it work :-) -JJR

I guess you're not using the lastest version of DWT because the compiling switches for both run-build.bat and run-dmd.bat are the same in DWT v0.3. For example: build controlexample.d -release -O -w -gui -clean -Tcontrolexample.exe dmd -release -O -L/SUBSYSTEM:windows:5 swt.lib advapi32.lib comctl32.lib gdi32.lib shell32.lib comdlg32.lib ole32.lib user32_swt.lib imm32_swt.lib shell32_swt.lib msimg32_swt.lib usp10_swt.lib gdi32_swt.lib kernel32_swt.lib olepro32_swt.lib oleaut32_swt.lib oleacc_swt.lib alignabletab.d buttontab.d canvastab.d ccombotab.d clabeltab.d combotab.d controlexample.d coolbartab.d ctabfoldertab.d dialogtab.d grouptab.d labeltab.d listtab.d progressbartab.d rangetab.d sashformtab.d sashtab.d scrollabletab.d shelltab.d slidertab.d styledtexttab.d tab.d tabfoldertab.d tabletab.d tabletreetab.d texttab.d toolbartab.d treetab.d controlexample.res -ofcontrolexample.exe Neither uses the -debug switch, but the former command produces a more bloated executable.

Yes, but I was talking about the huge difference between .exe file sizes and compiling time.

I followed up to the wrong post (yours), and not: digitalmars.D.announce/1241 What looked to be the worst issue was that the 'build' executable wouldn't run, so I was trying to provide a little feedback on that..

No, I was looking at the latest DWT version, but I saw it wrong. There is no -debug in the run-build.bat file; my mistake.

The "-Xswt" switch works fine with the "controlexample", though the executable is still slightly bigger. But "build dummyeclipse.d -w -gui -release -O -clean -Tdummyeclipse.exe -Xswt" fails to compile at all.

That is because you specified the libraries to link in the run-dmd file but didn't in the run-build file. In the controlexamples source file you had specified all the pragmas for build but you didn't in the dummyecplise source file. -- Derek Parnell Melbourne, Australia 20/08/2005 5:04:16 PM

I have noticed this before.
"run-build.bat" compiles all the source files include SWT source and links these
objs to a .exe without "swt.lib". This leads to a big size.
"run-dmd.bat" will compile only the example source files and link to "swt.lib".
(You must build swt.lib before "run-dmd.bat"). 

Use build to link with "swt.lib" you should exclude the SWT source by "-Xswt"
and specify the "swt.lib". like
"build dummyeclipse.d -w -gui -release -O -clean -Tdummyeclipse.exe -Xswt
swt.lib"
In this way, the exe size is small enough but still a little bigger than the one
"run-dmd.bat" generated. This looks some strange since build just invoke
"link.exe" like dmd does in my thought.
