GUI's in Java
Posted on 2010-11-17
Hey everyone, I hope some of you have a lot of experience with GUI's in Java. I've never made one. Since I'm lazy and I have this membership I thought I would ask some experts to see if anyone has anything really useful.
I need to quickly and easily make a simple GUI for a chess program I am making. It needs to be a window with a picture of the current chessboard state, and a box (kindof like the CLI) that displays info and takes in new moves and orders as string inputs (like a CLI).
Please post helpful information, recommendations from experience, simple examples, and library recommendations. Please post relevant examples based on your personal experience and recommendations. Also, anything specifically involving a picture made up of sub-pictures would be great. I.E.- how to form a chessboard graphically and simply.
