Material Design Gui

10 May 2018, 16:16

I'm working on a Material Design interface based on Google web services using a similar UI.

I'm currently referencing the Google Contacts website for the initial design.

Just wanted to share a screenshot of my work so far...

I'm using AutoHotkey built-in controls (Picture, Text, etc.) -- NO HTML.

My first attempt used a hidden Tab2 control. I added different controls to separate tabs and switched between the different tabs to change the content in the Gui, but I had issues with overlapping controls when attempting to emulate the mouse hover effect over menu items and other controls, so I changed direction and decided to try using a layered Gui instead.

I am using several caption-less Gui windows as child windows and assigning them to a Parent Gui. The Toolbar is its own Gui, and the same for the Main Menu, Body, etc.

I use Gui, Show/Hide to open the main menu on the side.

I'm still experimenting with how to make some things work, but so far I've been successful.

Thank you! I know you could do it better with GDI+ :-)

I decided that I was satisfied enough with my progress to go ahead and release the code.

No I'm simply not a designer.
