    found bug. When dftextbox has no chacracters, clicking on it repeating will have IndexOutOfRange error. Happens on samples too

    Which version are you seeing this in? I'm not able to reproduce that in the latest version.

    Anyone else find that the Occlusion Culling in 4.3.1 culls the GUI?

    I'm not terribly experienced with occlusion culling, but Masaaki is. I'll ask him to look into it when I see him.

    1.0.10. Use Panel sample. Delete the text in the textbox, double click, crash.

    @TakuanDaikon: I love DF-GUI, and I'm considering using it for a large project in the near future. There are only two things that keeps me from committing to DF-GUI in that project:

    The first thing is that the performance of scrollable rich-text isn't enough for use with mobile devices (yet). I get 5 times higher frame-time with DF-GUI compared to a home-brew solution using GUILayout and Scrollview with the same content.

    The other thing is the inability to reliably dock objects to the edges of the screen when not using the pixel-perfect option. Docking to the top or bottom works, but left and right doesn't work with different aspect ratios.

    I just want to know if these two issues will be resolved in a new release soon? I can work around issue #2, but it would be great with better built-in support. #1 is harder to get around since there's a lot going on per frame on different levels of the DF-GUI codebase.

    The code causing that exception has been fixed in more recent versions. An update has already been submitted to the Asset Store and is currently awaiting approval.

    The second item has already been resolved in the developer codebase, and you can expect an update soon. There is a workaround posted on our support forums that appears to be working for several people who have tried it.

    As for the first, I have been testing some things that will allow me to improve performance somewhat. The parsing and layout of HTML markup is a pretty complex task, and there are surely ways to optimize it that I have not yet explored, so we'll be continuing to work on that.

    Hi TakuanDaikon

    My apologies if this question has been answered already in this thread, but can you tell me if DF-GUI can make dropdown menus? Kind of like a standard windows program with a 'file' button at the top that then expands into a dropdown menu, with each item being clickable and opening a new floating window.

    I got it up and running in NGUI but it's a bit cumbersome so I'd love to know if you can do it in DF-GUI too.

    Thanks

    Daikon seems to be a very promising GUI framework. Does it make extensive use of System.Linq under the hood? I noticed in some of your sources that you use System.Linq and for me that screams memory garbage collection.

    I would purchase this solution in a second if you get rid of any System.Linq usage and you keep runtime memory allocation to a minimum.

    So far, awesome solution!

    There is no built-in support for those kinds of menus, and it would require some custom code. I don't think it would need to be terribly complex, but I haven't tried it personally. I'll have to add that to the growing list of samples when I can find the time.

    Speaking of new examples, I put together a few new examples over the holiday weekend:

    Don't be so quick to judge the examples you've seen :D

    It does use Linq in some places, but for operations that are likely to suffer performance and memory penalties there are custom overrides for common Linq methods which make extensive use of object pooling and take advantage of the fact that the collection type is known. For instance, most collections are managed with a dfList<T> collection, which is optimized to minimize or even eliminate memory allocations in most situations. As an example, the dfList<T> class defines its own Select() and Where() methods as replacements for the Linq-based versions, which utilize object pooling internally as well as not needing to treat the collection an an unknown IEnumerable<T> (and therefore not even need to allocate an iterator) -

    Code (csharp):
    1. /// <summary>
    2. /// Returns a <see cref="dfList"/> list containing all elements
    3. /// of the collection matching the condition specified by <paramref name="predicate"/>
    4. /// </summary>
    5. public dfList<T> Where( Func<T, bool> predicate )
    6. {
    7.  
    8.  
    9.     var result = dfList<T>.Obtain( this.count );
    10.  
    11.  
    12.     for( int i = 0; i < this.count; i++ )
    13.     {
    14.         if( predicate( items[ i ] ) )
    15.         {
    16.             result.Add( items[ i ] );
    17.         }
    18.     }
    19.  
    20.  
    21.     return result;
    22.  
    23.  
    24. }
    25.  
    26.  
    27.  
    Every attempt has been made to minimize memory allocations, with particular emphasis on anything that occurs on a per-frame basis.

    Some of the code you've seen that looks like Linq, might not be :D

    Just bought...truly awesome.
    I did some test before with the free trial version 1.0.9 and now, in this 1.010 full version, i did not found some useful features already present in the trial version:
    - the display of ruler works only in orthographic mode (or 2d mode in 4.3.1).
    - UnityScript codes can not access anymore at DF classes.

    There's a thread on our support forums that discusses the issue with UnityScript and Boo not mixing well with DFGUI. Essentially, both of those language impose some bizarre visibility rules that result in the need to move the DFGUI folders into the following hierarchy:



    I'll look into adding the rulers back in Perspective mode.

    Thanks for your instant reply Takuan!
    Yes, I did already read this post in your forum... infact the bizarre thing is that the 1.09 free trial version works without move anything in the folder structure.
    I hope that you could find a simple way to make DF easily accessible from JS. Thanks.

    The reason the free version works that way is because it is already compiled into a .dll, which conflicts with the idea of having the full source code available in the full version. We'll definitely work on this issue to see how we can best provide the broadest support.

    We still haven't finished it, it got delayed for other higher-priority items. We should be able to finish that this week.

    Most likely we'll take the demo we used in the following video and clean it up and finish it as an example of touch-screen joystick -

    I get this problem all the time, and it's quite annoying as I have to remake the atlas every single time that we update some textures. Adding textures don't cause this problem.

    It might be worth mentioning that we are using version control, which causes there to be .meta files next to all files.

    Thanks.

    I also use version control and have to deal with .meta files, I don't think that's the issue. Or if it is, then there's something that I'm doing differently, which may be possible.

    In any case, if you replace dfTextureAtlasInspector.rebuildAtlas() with the following I believe that it should eliminate the Null Reference Exception. I can't duplicate the issue, but this seems the most likely solution based on the stack trace you showed.

    Code (csharp):
    1. internal static bool rebuildAtlas( dfAtlas atlas )
    2. {
    3.  
    4.  
    5.     try
    6.     {
    7.  
    8.  
    9.         EditorUtility.DisplayProgressBar( "Rebuilding Texture Atlas", "Processing changes to the texture atlas...", 0 );
    10.  
    11.  
    12.         var sprites = atlas.Items
    13.             .Where( i => i != null  !i.deleted )
    14.             .Select( i => new { source = i, texture = getTexture( i.textureGUID ) } )
    15.             .OrderByDescending( i => i.texture.width * i.texture.height )
    16.             .ToList();
    17.  
    18.  
    19.         var textures = sprites.Select( i => i.texture ).ToList();
    20.  
    21.  
    22.         var oldAtlasTexture = atlas.Material.mainTexture;
    23.         var texturePath = AssetDatabase.GetAssetPath( oldAtlasTexture );
    24.  
    25.  
    26.         var padding = EditorPrefs.GetInt( "DaikonForge.AtlasDefaultPadding", 2 );
    27.  
    28.  
    29.         var newAtlasTexture = new Texture2D( 0, 0, TextureFormat.RGBA32, false );
    30.         var newRects = newAtlasTexture.PackTextures2( textures.ToArray(), padding, 4096 );
    31.  
    32.  
    33.         byte[] bytes = newAtlasTexture.EncodeToPNG();
    34.         System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes( texturePath, bytes );
    35.         bytes = null;
    36.         DestroyImmediate( newAtlasTexture );
    37.  
    38.  
    39.         setAtlasTextureSettings( texturePath, oldAtlasTexture.filterMode, false );
    40.  
    41.  
    42.         // Fix up the new sprite locations
    43.         for( int i = 0; i < sprites.Count; i++ )

    46.             sprites[ i ].source.sizeInPixels = new Vector2( textures[ i ].width, textures[ i ].height );
    47.             sprites[ i ].source.texture = null;
    48.         }
    49.  
    50.  
    51.         // Remove any deleted sprites
    52.         atlas.Items.RemoveAll( i => i.deleted );
    53.  
    54.  
    55.         // Re-sort the Items collection
    56.         atlas.Items.Sort();

    I've got what seems to be a pretty dumb question. I want to create a simple menu where the selected item text changes color and displays a highlight sprite behind it.

    My first try was using dfListBox, which is super close to what I want. I made a simple change to the code to allow a separate "highlighted item color" to be defined in the inspector. It tints the color of the highlight sprite. In my case, my source sprite is a white filled square that I want to be able to set it to a different color than the main listbox color. (might be a nice and super easy enhancement to include someday, HINT HINT HINT)

    But since the text color is for the entire items string, other than embedding formatting codes into the items text on the fly (ugly!), I don't see a clear way to change the selected item's text color. Is there a different control type that would make this easier? I've started playing around with labels inside regular panels, but I feel like I'm recreating the dfListBox functionality.

    Thanks!

    This is actually a common request. Common enough, at any rate, that I will be working on a sample to include with the next update. I'll try to make it as easy to understand and use/extend as possible.

    Is this happening on an atlas that was created in an earlier version (such as before v1.0.10)? If so, you may need to upgrade the texture atlas. This replacement for the dfTextureAtlasInspector.cs file should resolve that issue either way, I believe.

    Hey everyone, I was wondering how many of you guys would like my assets to support DF-GUI so I just created a poll:

    NJG Minimap

    UI Damage <- DF-GUI is nearly done on this one but I would like to know :)

    Hi TakuanDaikon,

    Used the trial - WINNER!

    Have purchased the full monty and I'm trying to access the Daikon Forge examples within Unity and they are greyed, not sure if I'm doing that right. I know you have instructions but my mind (for today) has turned to jello and I don't know where they are or if I'm attempting something that isn't doable.

    Any hints would be great. Thanks for an awesome product!

    Did you delete the Daikon Forge folder before importing the full version? If not, that could cause some issues, although I have to admit I haven't seen what I think you are describing. Are you getting any compiler errors or warnings?

    Can you please describe what your experiencing in more detail? It might help in figuring out how to get you going, as the examples should be very easy to access.

    Just note that using something like this also allocates garbage, simply passing a lambda into a method taking a delegate allocates memory for each call. Something like this is usually not acceptable when building mobile games.

    Well, I just recently got DF-GUI so I only had the latest version.
    This happens when trying to adding new textures to an existing atlas, but only when those textures are being updated (upgrading etc).

    After replacing the file I got the following errors (and still can't upgrade).

    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. Assets/Resources/External Resources/Packages/Daikon Forge/DFGUI/Editor/dfTextureAtlasInspector.cs(399,29): error CS0117: `dfEditorUtil' does not contain a definition for `BeginGroup'
    3.  
    4.

    6.  
    7.  
    8. Assets/Resources/External Resources/Packages/Daikon Forge/DFGUI/Editor/dfTextureAtlasInspector.cs(739,29): error CS0117: `dfEditorUtil' does not contain a definition for `BeginGroup'

    12.  
    13.  
    14. And when trying to upgrade/update a texture:
    15.

    Oh... I forgot that the file I uploaded had references to recent changes that have not been released yet. I'll see about putting together a hotfix later today.

    Thanks :) I appreciate it, because the only other way I can actually update textures in my atlas is to remake the atlas completely from scratch, and then I have to re-assign every single item in my whole GUI system. Which is quite a process :p.

    You also forgot to answer this. As a customer, your response interested me.

    I didn't forget, I just didn't want to engage in a theoretical discussion. My point wasn't to say "See? I use this, so no memory allocations!", it was to illustrate that someone who had already decided that the library "screams memory allocations" without actually seeing the entire codebase in person may not fully appreciate just how much effort I've put into the library, and that a casual glance at some isolated portions of the code may not give the full picture.

    It is undeniably true that if you pass that function a lambda, it will allocate a small amount of memory for that lambda. The method signature I showed above doesn't require passing a lambda, however. It also allows you to pass the address of a function which returns a boolean and takes as a parameter a single instance of the type for which the list was type-bound. I cannot find anywhere in the current developer codebase where any of those functions are being passed a lambda on a per-frame basis (in fact, they are rarely used in any form in perf-critical sections), although there are some lambdas used in non-performance-critical areas that occur only on infrequent occasions (usually direct interaction between the user and the control).

    I'm very well aware of what does and does not allocate memory, and have taken great pains to keep memory allocations to a minimum, and take care to verify my results with the profiler.

    If there are specific instances of unnecessary memory allocations that you'd like to see me address, please let me know. I'm absolutely dedicated to making DFGUI as performant as possible, for all platforms including mobile.

    Any idea why my text fields are sometimes fairly slow to update? By that I mean my game is humming along 100+fps and I change the .Text of a label or button and rather than an instant update (as I'd expect) there is a perceptible few seconds lag for the text field to update visually (the .text field is instantly changed in debug).

    This can be most obvious when you have a text block with some info, you Hide it, and then when you call it again you change the text and Show it. Not 100% of the time but more often the not the block will show up with the old text and then it'll update to the new text shortly after appearing.

    I know this is a pain in the ass to debug because it is isn't consistent but I didn't know if there are any options that change the performance of the text rendering to try.

    Which version are you using? There was a bug several versions back were that might have happened in some situations, but it has been resolved for a bit. If that's not it, then I'm not sure. More info would help. You say it's not consistent, but if you do notice a pattern then I'd certainly like to know.

    I hope that's a good thing :D

    Got your PM, sounds like something that would make a great demo/sample. Not sure when I'll have time to do something like that, but will definitely at least do something similar when I can.

    Now that I am learning this tool, I will try to create the Card Play Functionality I mentioned. If I am successful, I will post it for you to see.

    Reporting,

    It seems drag and drop requires pixel perfect. If not, there is an offset to the dragged sprite. I'm scaling in mobile so can't use pixel perfect.

    The issue causing this has been reported on our support forums, and has already been fixed in the dev branch. An update with the fix will be released soon.
