I’m trying to make a flat GUI look for my addon, I have looked at the wiki tutorials but I still can’t seem to grasp derma as a whole. Any suggestions? Below are some pictures that I made in Photoshop that are almost excactly what I want to make.
Maybe worth checking out some of Code Blue’s tutorials if you haven’t already
His YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFpuE-Qjn4EWqX-VJ_l7pbw/videos
His video about derma panels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bGo95GcywU
In order to actually get a value back (Rather than just moving a slider and (un)checking a box), use GetValue.
I have looked at his videos before and they did help somewhat but not to the extent that I need to accomplish the above GUI.
Its not that hard. Use DERMA:DOCK(TOP) for the settings, so they align all under eachother – or use a DScrollPanel.
Try using this instead - I think the image on it is fairly outdated so that’s why it looks weird (I think I’ll update that)
You said “I still can’t seem to grasp derma as a whole” is this your first proper derma panel? if so start with the basics. I know you want to make the menu you sketched up in photoshop, but start small, make a simple, functional but ugly menu to start off. Then add things to it. It’s easy to get lost and confused if you aim too high.
I know you said you have looked at the wiki tutorials already, but I’d still recommend: https://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Derma_Basic_Guide
I think it explain the basics very well, and when you know what everything there does, go through these https://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/VGUI/Elements and read ,pre about the parts that intrest you.
