Widgets, oh, my!
UI is an abbreviation that stands for user interface. You know, things that are on the screen. This include items like: labels, buttons, menus, sliders and views. Cocos2d-x provides a set of UI widgets to make it simple to add these controls to your projects. It may sound trivial, but a lot goes in to creating a core class like a
Label. There are so many aspects of just this one. Could you imagine having to write your own custom widget set? Don't worry, your needs are covered!
