Implementation Details

The application consists of a graphical user interface (GUI) and program code. Most of the GUI can be designed using a tool such as Glade, yet its function needs to be implemented in code. Even for a simple application like this one, there is still a certain amount of code required to connect elements of the user interface to basic actions.

In the User Interface section we provide a quick overview of the GUI, showing what it looks like in the Glade tool. Online resources for Glade provide detailed instruction on the process of building user interfaces.

In the The Main Program section we tie the user interface to the program code that performs the work of the application, from initialization to game logic and handling of user interface actions.

In the Template Files section we look at the template files that will be filled in when the project is configured. These include the executable that will run when the user launches the application.
