Window Label Button Example:Edit

The following is the example of a window that has a label and a button. This example was posted on the previous wiki compliments of Medikage. To view this example copy the code into 3 separate files and place them into a folder called HelloWorldGui. Then take the HelloWorldGui folder and place it in the Warhammer addon folder.

Mod File: Save as HelloWorldGui.mod

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ModuleFile xmlns:xsi="">
    <UiMod name="HelloWorldGui" version="1.0" date="01/10/2009" >
        <Author name="medikage" email="" />
        <Description text="Demonstrates how to create a window that will display some text and a button turn itself off" />
        <VersionSettings gameVersion="1.3.3" windowsVersion="1.0"/>
      <Dependency name="EASystem_WindowUtils" />
      <Dependency name="LibSlash" />
            <File name="HelloWorldGui.lua" />
      <File name="HelloWorldGui.xml" />
            <CallFunction name="HelloWorldGui.Initialise" />

Lua file: Save as HelloWorldGui.lua

HelloWorldGui = {}
function HelloWorldGui.Initialise()
   -- Register the slash command.  Now when the user types "/helloworld" the HelloWorld.Slash 
   -- function will be actioned. 
   LibSlash.RegisterSlashCmd("helloworld", HelloWorldGui.Slash)

   -- Create the window and then hide it.  
   CreateWindow("HelloWorldGui", true)
   WindowSetShowing("HelloWorldGui", false)

   -- Apply text to the label and button so they are not blank.
   LabelSetText("HelloWorldGuiLabel", L"Hello, World!")
   ButtonSetText("HelloWorldGuiButton", L"Close")

   -- Register the window with the LayoutEditor so that it can be moved and resized via the 
   -- Settings/Layout Editor screen. Note: You will need to have the SaveSettings="true" option 
   -- set in the <Window> XML tag if you want these changes to persist beyond game closure.
   LayoutEditor.RegisterWindow ( "HelloWorldGui"             -- Window Name
                               , L"HelloWorldGui"            -- Window Display Name
                               , L"GUI Demonstration Window" -- Window Description
                               , false                       -- Allow Size Width
                               , false                       -- Allow Size Height
                               , true                        -- Allow Hiding
                               , nil                         -- Allowable Anchor List

function HelloWorldGui.CloseWindow()
   --When the button is clicked, hide the HelloWorldGui window.

function HelloWorldGui.Slash()
   --When the user types "/helloworld", show the HelloWorldGui window
