Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you…. 😀
Yeah, that has been happening to me since last week. I have had dreams of widgets flying here and there. Well, this is psychological! Though for the time I was in college, we were like we would do it, but deep inside I got tensed since we were stuck at the same point for consecutive 4 days.
Then I took on reading the basic UI part from the book and I am glad I did that. After reading very first few chapters and trying a few tutorials, I got more confidence. I got myself acquainted with the things how they exactly were working. Books are always awesome. And yes, in two days July 9 and 10, we successfully implemented the very basic features in the UI. 😀 These included:
- Adding graphics view, which serves as the drawing area for entities
- Painting different entities which had static dimensions
- Painting entities on mouse clicks by the user in graphics view
- Zooming and panning of the graphics view
Though it brought in so much struggle, we were elated on accomplishing the same. Time for correcting a few things, including the dimensions of drawing area and the bounding rectangles particularly. Working on the same! Also had taste of gtk. I did not use IDE and working in vim gave me an innate buddy-buddy feeling (since been on IDE lately).
I am also trying to improve my time management. Studied Permutations and Combinations too today morning.
This UI part is just so awesome! I look at UI design of everything around me. I am lovin’ it. 🙂
