How To

Jun 17, 2009 at 4:27 PM

What about a "How To" list?
This might help to form a knowledge base which could eliminate some of the questions in this forum.
I'll start with some questions I'd like answers to personally :)

1. How to make a jazzier frame than the standard basic border and foreground type, e.g. with an icon in the top left corner, or an interesting background, or a borderless frame.

2. How to add a dropdown list to a frame, populate it programmatically, and read the selected value.

I'd love it if someone would do this! We do have some sample templates that we're working on, including an in-game samples browser, but it doesn't have the how-to/step-by-step discussion like you're describing above.

Those templates sound great - can't wait!

I would be happy to produce some "How Tos" when I know these answers.
Professionally, I always include them in my own documentation as I find they are the best way to educate the reader, once they are past the basic stages.
