Using the listbox isn't recommended? Why's that? Is it limited on what it can do?
Yeah, I'm working on a RPG. Very very simple one.
I'm gonna try this out. Is there any other method though?
Thank you very much for your help! <3
The reason why it is not recommended is because of the way it is structured. Like you said, it is rather limited.
Like Jasmine said, a structured array, or even just a plain 2D array would do much better. People do not like using this because there is logic required when drawing. In the end, it looks hundreds of times better than a list box and you have full control over it.
A listbox in a game doesn't work that nice. Come to think about it... No Windows GUI looks nice in games :S
Textboxes, listboxes, checkboxes, menu's, etc. all of that looks hideous in a game.
