UT2003 :: Object >> Interactions >> Interaction >> BaseGUIController >> GUIController (Package: XInterface)

The GUIController contains a simple first-in, last-out menu stack. You have three things you can do:

  • Open a menu – adds the menu to the top of the stack.
  • Replace a menu – replaces the current menu with the new menu.
  • Close a menu – returns you to the last menu on the stack.

The GUIController is the GUI system's only interface to the world of Actors.

A similar UT class would probably be the WindowConsole, although the UWindow system in UT is more like a console extension while UT2003's GUIController and Console are both Interactions without being a subclass of eachother.
