Derma Testing, tabs don't work properly

I’m not getting an error in the console or anything and all the derma is loaded. However when I actually go to change the tabs, the tool tips (little speech bubbles that come up when you hold the mouse over the tabs) don’t say anything and I can’t actually change the tabs. Clicking on a different tab does nothing and no error message is received.

cl_init.lua:
[lua]include( ‘shared.lua’ )

// Clientside only stuff goes here
function ShowTeamMenu()
local DermaPanel = vgui.Create( “DFrame” ) – Creates the frame itself
DermaPanel:SetPos( 80,80 ) – Position on the players screen
DermaPanel:SetSize( 800, 600 ) – Size of the frame
DermaPanel:SetTitle( “Main Menu” ) – Title of the frame
DermaPanel:SetVisible( true )
DermaPanel:SetDraggable( false ) – Draggable by mouse?
DermaPanel:ShowCloseButton( true ) – Show the close button?
DermaPanel:MakePopup() – Show the frame

local TestingPanel = vgui.Create( “DPanel”, DermaPanel )
TestingPanel:SetPos( 25, 50 )
TestingPanel:SetSize( 750, 50 )
TestingPanel.Paint = function() – Paint function
surface.SetDrawColor( 50, 50, 50, 255 ) – Set our rect color below us; we do this so you can see items added to this panel
surface.DrawRect( 0, 0, TestingPanel:GetWide(), TestingPanel:GetTall() ) – Draw the rect
surface.DrawText( “Message of the Day: Zyler Rocks!” )

local PropertySheet = vgui.Create( “DPropertySheet” )
PropertySheet:SetParent( DermaPanel )
PropertySheet:SetPos( 25, 110 )
PropertySheet:SetSize( 750, 315 )

local Welcome = vgui.Create( “DCheckBoxLabel” )
Welcome:SetText( “A” )

local Character = vgui.Create( “DCheckBoxLabel” )
Character:SetText( “B” )

local Props = vgui.Create( “DCheckBoxLabel” )
Props:SetText( “C” )

PropertySheet:AddSheet( “Welcome”, Welcome, “gui/silkicons/user”, false, false, “Rules and stuff” )
PropertySheet:AddSheet( “Character/Groups”, Character, “gui/silkicons/group”, false, false, “Manage your character and groups” )
PropertySheet:AddSheet( “Props/Tools”, Props, “gui/silkicons/group”, false, false, “Get Props and Tools” )

end
end

usermessage.Hook( “call_vgui”, ShowTeamMenu )
[/lua]

try creating those GUI stuff outside of your paint function.

Not to mention adding your sheets outside of it.

Outside the function? They’re local though.

Can you clarify what you mean exactly, like do you suggest making a new function to put them in or just moving them out of a function altogether.

As far as I can see I want all this stuff to happen when the function is called, how does moving it out of a function without a hook or anything help me?

The function Testing.Panel should be closed (with an end) after
[lua]surface.DrawText( “Message of the Day: Zyler Rocks!” )[/lua]
which is probably what he meant.
(Also means you have to remove the first end at the bottom of the script (Line 44))

Thanks, I just tested it, it works perfectly.

The last thing I want to know is how to add plain text instead of ‘tick boxes’ on my tab sheets. I tried replacing ‘vgui.Create’ with ‘surface.DrawText’, but I dont think that works.
