Hyperlink buttons

Post by SamuraiCrow » Fri Nov 03, 2017 9:49 pm

I know it's possible to make a text wrapped link style button in wxWidgets but what about MUI?
I would like to make a custom viewer app for doing hypertext using either HGui or RapaGUI someday. The AmigaGuide Datatype sucks in AROS, and the HTML viewer class would need a total rewrite on MUI for HTML 5 compatibility.

I'm not sure I get what you mean. Are you asking for a widget which creates a clickable link? This could definitely be implemented using wxHyperlinkCtrl on wxWidgets and Hyperlink.mcc on MUI. But I'm not sure because of the second part of your question where you mention the "custom viewer app"... I don't see how such a widget helps with a custom viewer app...

I'm trying to figure out if it is possible to write an HTML 5 capable offline viewer that could be expanded into a web browser later. So far only the parsers for HTML, CSS and JavaScript need to be written as plugin support. Maybe I can even try making an import plugin like Malibu for that.

A HTML 5 capable offline viewer? That sounds like an ambitious project :)

Yes. Unfortunately it's needed more than a visual programming language. Besides that, there's middleware to help with the parser.
