Making a Start Screen Menu - GUI
I am a beginner so please be kind with your response to my question. Trying to develop a start up main menu for my text based game I am putting together the usual "New Game", "Load Game", "Options", "Exit" etc and I think that I could do that with the pushButtons and if so is there any way I could add a picture background and change or highlight the color of the buttons using QT> or would I need to use another program & implement that into the buttons? Anyone please get back with me thanks :)
you can do it using Qt Designer
You should check the docs and wiki about QPushButton and layouts ;) (sorry to not include links, I'm in a hurry, but these can easily be found using the search)
There are a few examples too in the wiki and also in Qt Creator.
And check signals and slots mechanism too, from then it'll pretty easy ;)
Since it hasn't been mentioned yet: Stylesheets are your friend here, as they can make the pushbutton look like whatever you want.
A quote from that site that might inspire you:
border-image: url(button.png) 4 4 4 4 stretch stretch;
