This is a module to perform certain native ui features.

This module was backed by CopperCircle, you should thank him with praise and gifts a plenty!

You can find the module here:

It currently supports:
- iOS
- Android
- glfw windows desktop (ShowMessage only)

At the moment the module lets you show message alerts and request input. Input can be requested via keyboard popup, confirmation (yes/no) popup or spinner gadget.

Enjoy, for free :D

I know this isn't the best spot, but I sent you an email about some possible work and never received a response, can you email me?

Hey Eric,

Weird I did reply. I have re sent the email.

Thanks to CopperCircle for the impulse.

I am planning to do some development for the android part and an equivalent for testing in flash/html5, as soon as i read through your structure.

Just downloaded the module from github and it runs perfectly on IOS but won't compile for Desktop Game on OSX. Error is 'TRANS FAILED: Error executing 'xcodebuild configuration Debug', return code=166640 ?

I am using Monkey Pro77d and xcode 5.0.2 IOS 10.9.1

Hey, sorry for delay. I did not implement this on osx glfw, sorry about that.

Please, there are still some other module that can do these lists? (It can also be paid.)


P.S. This module is great, but I have some probleme with running.

My solution is to use the Pyro. Make a buttons and move the Y-axis.
Nothing else occurred to me. Perhaps it will work well on Android.


Import mojo2
Import playniax.pyro.guiskinner
Import playniax.pyro.guiskins.pyro

Class MyApp Extends App

Field guiLayer:prGuiLayer
Field button:prGuiButton[101]

Method OnCreate:Int()

prSetGuiSkin "pyro_gui_skin.txt"

guiLayer = New prGuiLayer()
guiLayer.SetVirtual 640, 480

image = prCreateImage(prContent.GetImage("background.png"))
image.SetLayer guiLayer
image.SetPosition 320, 240

y = 0; pocet = 100

For Local i:Int = 1 To pocet
button[i] = prCreateButton("pyro_fonts_default_21.txt", "Polozka c. " + String(i), 350, 35, 0, -3, False)
button[i].SetLayer guiLayer
button[i].SetPosition 305, i * 32 + y
End For

End Method

If KeyDown(KEY_DOWN) Then y += 5
