GUI "Create" helper function.


Recommended Posts

I made a helper function to create GUI elements easier, could maybe even be used to import GUI's stored in JSON files quite easily

Comments in PG should explain, 
but here's the basics:

Create( elementType, parent, propertiesObject )

elementType = TextBlock, Image, etc.. 
new BABYLON.GUI.TextBlock(); 
..turns into.. 
Create( "TextBlock", ...);

parent = Parent Element.. 
parentElement.addControl( newElement );
..turns into.. 
Create("TextBlock", parentElement, ...);

propertiesObject = Width, Height, Text.. 
element.width = "200px"; 
element.height = "50px";
element.text = "Just a textBlock";
..turns into.. 
Create("TextBlock", parentElement, { 
  width: "200px", 
  height: "50px", 
  text: "Just a textBlock" 

More advanced useage using "designs" & Object.assign() to re-use code can be found in PG.


Maybe some people will find it useful.
Have a nice weekend!
