suitable GUI for this kind of appln


Hi All,

I have a small app to develop, but was wondering which is the suitable GUI to use. Constraints - lightweight and fast.

Its basically a very simple app....
- One main-small-black-dot of about 1cm diameter
- clicked on it and a 2nd circle has to appear around it
- clicked on the 2nd circle, a 3rc cirle has to appear around the 2nd one...
- press escape and return back to the previous cirlce.

kind of incremental circle drawing. Which is the best GUI to design.
I have in mind
- QT
- FLTK
but I am not sure, if such drawing are possible using them.

What do you guys say? Thanks in advance and sorry for any trouble.

Best Regards
xaleR

Well, since you don't need fancy buttons, menues and such, I don't actually see a point in using QT or some other heavy toolkit. I would probably do something like that with simple OpenGL/glut tools. Would take about 50 -- 100 line of code...

Thank you for the suggestion.

True, I don't need any fancy buttons, menus or any such kind of stuff.... All I need is the ability to draw about 3 circles one inside the other and the ability to capture the mouse click.

I was going through the info about glut, when I found this limitation, and its also not under development any more. I am looking at freeglut also. I shall evaluate a few of the toolkits with some sample programs and checkout which one would be better off.
