Need help with lua menu coding!

Hello Fellow Lua, Coders!,

I have been Making A Fallout Role-play Script, I have Pretty much completed it… BUT I haven’t achieved the skill of making a menu with a image as the background -.-, What im trying to achieve is a VTF file used as a background,
Clearly a background without a outline,

Here is an example of what i want to be able to do when EG: People open there Inventory!

Please help!

I’m not very sure what you want to do, but if you want to display a custom .vtf file on the HUD, use this: **[Draw.TexturedQuad

You talking about http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=DImage ?

Thanks for the Replys but if you Read I did state that I “Didn’t” Want the Outline of the Dframe -.- uhm Look at the Site I posted there is a Prime example there. I basically want it so when people press Q it opens a menu which looks exactly like that and then I can then add the Buttons where the text are to open a DImage with other transparent Buttons but i just need the Frame in the Background or better pronounced the “Parent”

Thanks

You need to make a derma skin.

Or just use Panel:Paint(), if it’s just the one panel that needs it.

If you want to use it as a theme, though, then a derma skin is the better way to go.



MainMenuPanel = vgui.Create('DPanel', DOVERRIDE)
MainMenuPanel:SetSize(1024, 1024)
MainMenuPanel:SetPos(ScrW() - ScrW() + 45, ScrH() - ScrH() + 45)
MainMenuPanel:Center()
MainMenuPanel.Paint = function()
	local DrawTexture = surface.GetTextureID( "srpimages/misc/pda_frame" )
    surface.SetDrawColor( 255, 255, 255, 255 );
	surface.SetTexture(DrawTexture)
	surface.DrawTexturedRect( 0, 0, 1024, 1024 )

end


Did you make a website just to host that one image?

Dude… it’s from the texture folder on the server…

He meant the OP.

No, he just got the picture from http://gmodaftermath.com
(http://gmodaftermath.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/aubkGH.jpg)

Then he simply went to www.dot.tk registered a free shortener, like http://co.cc or http://co.nr except that ‘.tk’ is more crappy.

The next step he did was just give you guys the link in this thread. So no, he didn’t make a website just to host a picture.
