wanted: GUI graphics
« on: April 10, 2007, 09:43:15 PM »
I build a lot of GUIs at work so people don't have to deal with changing directories, starting up applications with long complicated optional parameters, etc. What I realized today, was that I don't have a good toolkit of what I call "GUI Graphics". These are things like status indicators, which might look like a lit or unlit red, amber, and green LED. Or a AVI of a spinning gears to show something is processing. Or a group of BMPs of Start, Stop, and Reset buttons in both the pushed and unpushed states. Or a series of transparent PNG images of an analog gauge with the needle at every integer position from 0 to 10 and another from -10 to +10.

I am not looking for huge collections of general icons or 10,000 smilies. Think in terms of the types of things that might be useful on a GUI control panel for a business application.

So what resources do you folks know about that might fit my needs?

As I am also a developer...
Some Resources:

For Icons:
http://vbaccelerator...cs_Library/index.asp (XP Icons)
http://commons.wikim.../wiki/Category:Icons (Many Icon Categories, see Icons Themes)

For AVI animations:
http://vbaccelerator...ibrary/AVI/index.asp (Only one I know of)

(to download AVIs, click the Download link on the side)

2stepsback,

Thank you for your suggestion, but it isn't quite what I am looking for. But your posting has made me realize that I should find and post some examples of the types of graphics I am looking for. Let me find some and post them.
