[Resolved] New GUIControls not displaying
« on: Apr 28, 12, 08:03:04 PM »

Hey all:

Sorry, for such a basic question/problem.  I usually do not post such items as I'm usually able to figure it out or at least find the answer but I haven't had much luck. 

I've reviewed tuts and read forum posts and still when I add new GUI controls via GUI Editor to display on render screen, I get nothing.  I've checked and the XML is being created but for some reason, not displaying on the screen after I save my changes.  When I edit existing controls (E_Statusbar) sometimes my changes take and sometimes they don't and the GUI reverts back to it's original state.

Do GUI changes via GUI Editor take effect instantly or is there some reset/reloading that needs to be done?

I appreciate the assistance. 
Great product and great forum BTW.  Anyone who has dealt with hosting and the managing aspects of online gaming can see the value in this product immediately regardless of the learning curve.

Usually after any UI changes, I'll just restart the client, or I head to the area organizer, and load into a play instance of Character Selection and re-select my character.

Great, thank you Chromehound.  That works for GUI changes made to existing controls.  But nothing new is showing up.  They have a size, set to visible... followed tuts to a "T"; what am I missing...?

If you're adding controls, then make sure they're being called in the E_playerAccountClassMethods (client script).....or obviously if you've implemented your own file names, then whatever you named that YourGameID_playerAccountClassMethods.

Sweet, that worked!  Thank you Chromehound. 

I guess I never thought to check the scripts.  I assumed the editor would modify the scripts needed to display the GUI.
