This is a good thing. I will eventually have plenty of things to discuss. Please don't expect anything for the next few days... I'm away for a bit. Thank you for setting this group up. It should help the endeavor. -JJR

Now that I think about it .. shouldn't it be a general gui NG instead? Since we didn't decide yet to endrose any specific GUI?

Maybe if you ask nicely, Walter will create a digitalmars.D.* 'group for your GUI library. But who knows? But yes, a digitalmars.D.gui 'group would be useful, as it would provide a place for: - general discussion of GUI programming - comparisons of GUI libraries - discussion of how to implement GUI features in a library - discussion on specific GUI libraries Stewart. -- -----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK----- Version: 3.1 GCS/M d- s:- C++ a->--- UB P+ L E W++ N+++ o K- w++ O?

Please keep replies on the 'group where everyone may benefit.

Mr. Bright,
than it would be fair if You setup digitalmars.D.dfl, digitalmars.D.minwin,
digitalmars.D.wxd and digitalmars.D.dui newsgroups as those are serious
competition to DWT.
I personally prefer MinWin over all others... Now I feel like DWT is
considered like "preferred" D GUI, which is far from true.

Kind regards

Or perhaps just a generic "digitalmars.D.gui" NG, or something ? But Walter said that the other GUI could go in the DWT group too: digitalmars.D.dwt/51

It isn't ? I had the feeling that DWT was now the official GUI. Or at least the graphical interface that Digital Mars prefers ? --anders

I think that Walter want a GUI toolkit that he can bundle with the compiler, and he think that DWT is the currently most promising project, regarding comprehensive and portable factors. But he also said something to the degree that this might change in the future if some other solution turns out to be a better match for D.

I wanted a GUI solution that I could bundle with the GDC compiler, so for me wxD (i.e. wxWidgets) turned out to be a perfect match... --anders

I'm perfectly comfortable not having a DUI group. I decided that there is a place to DUI (Gtk+ D style OO wrapping) even with the decision to have a another standard D GUI. I'm working on a revised version of DUI that I'm calling Duit for now. Ant
