Over the past two days I’ve made some good progress on the client. It’s now working with colored text and functioning scrollback. There was a bit of difficulty in figuring out how to post text from the network thread to the main window, but that’s been solved thanks to the helpful folks at the wxWidgets forums.
The equipment window works now, but the equipment names are not in color yet:
The earlier screenshots of the client just had some placeholder text — now it actually processes your equipment list and displays it.
The hotkey (hot button) window also works — you right click to set a command and a hotkey name. When you click the button the command is sent.
The prompt processing and room info display still needs some work, but it’s coming along nicely. I haven’t even started on the group info window yet. I think it may be about three solid days away from being able to release a test version, but I can’t recall the last time I’ve been able to get in a “solid” day of development. Usually it’s anywhere from one half to four hours at a time.
