ofxControlPanel updates

Howdy all,

Just a quick note that Kyle and I have been making some updates to ofControlPanel that bring it into the OF 007 world.

Please checkout/try it from Kyle’s branch: https://github.com/kylemcdonald/ofxControlPanel

nice, I noticed TextInput capabilities, that will be very useful.

Great, guys. Works fine.
Thank you for the effort and for sharing.


I just finished setting up the example project in codeblocks on win 7 x64 using the OF master branch. It compiles fine but the app crashes. While debugging I traced the crash to the line 26 of simpleFilelister.cpp

int numFiles = ofDirectory::listDir(directory);  

When stepping into the function the crash happens the debbugging error msg is

At C:\openFrameworks\addons\ofxControlPanel\src\simpleFileLister.cpp:26  
Program received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap.  
In ntdll!KiRaiseUserExceptionDispatcher () (C:\Windows\system32\ntdll.dll)  

a breakpoint in ofFileUtils.cpp in

int ofDirectory::listDir(string directory){  
	return listDir();  

never gets triggered.

the dirlistexample does not crash.

any Ideas?


Anybody knows how to save XML data from a FileLister GUI?
I’ve seen there is no XML name on construction but there is a function inside called makeXmlNameFromDisplayName();
so I’m a little bit puzzled of how saving this parameter

Been sifting through the code, but haven’t find a way to pass vars via reference to a slider or toggle. Is that possible?

I was wondering the same. I’m using mutiToggle instead of FileLister to be able to save to XML, but as it only saves the index position I have to number my files starting with 01, 02, 03 to keep the file position the same.
