I'm currently interested in putting together my own GUI, or at the very least a window on the left/right side of the screen that I could put things into. I am currently playing on a tiny netbook so the available GUI from the mudlet forums doesn't mesh well with my screen. So, ideally, here's what I want to do:
The GUI I want to put together would basically act like a small window where I could put reminders in, kind of like a chatbox, except instead of copying and pasting directly the game's text, I want it to work like so:
It fires off a line:
Siam hands you potatoes.
The code then ideally would update the GUI and place this at the bottom of the window:
Siam gave us POTATOES!
I am a bad coder(and the few coding attempts I did from reading the mudlet manual and the mudlet forums ended in semi-disasters, the closest I got to was creating a left oriented column spanning the entire height of the screen, but the 'updates' I placed there were stuck in the middle of the screen instead of the desired chatbox-like behavior) I am revisiting the prospect of creating this GUI and I would like you coding savvy folks' help in approaching the desired outcome. Thank you!
