Form Controls Engine Version 4.2
Support for SYNTAX HIGHLIGHTING in text editor!
This is a package I am currently working on designed to make it very easy to create controls in game maker. For now they are a bit slow and there are still many controls to be made, but that is because I want to do them right, completely bug-free. All the controls have been based on windows vista, and can be customised with a new "style" option that allows you to pick the styles you want. E.g. buttons can have selected styles for the normal, hovering and clicked states. Please post or PM me any suggestions/bugs you have. This package comes in the form of a gmk example, where you need to extract the scripts/sprites to use in GM7, it also comes as a GMRES for easy merging into GM8. I may make a gex form, but GMRES is just as simple to use.
Note: I'm making this in GM8. In theory it should work 100% compatible with GM7, but if you do have compatibility issues, please feel free to post or PM me.
(Please post or PM if you have any suggestions!)
