ButtonsFrom the page GUI for Drawing Rectangular 'Buttons' with nice shaded edges, here is an image showing that one can make nice rectangular images for use in making buttons for Tk GUI's.And if you want nice looking buttons with rounded corners, from the page GUI for Drawing 'Super-ellipses', with nice shaded edges, here are a couple of nice rounded-corners button images --- for exponent N=6 and N=22.(I may add a color-gradient capability to the super-ellipse-with-nice-shaded-edges utility someday --- to get even nicer buttons with rounded corners.)These button images could be used in combination with the techniques that I have demonstrated on the page Version 2 of a demo of THEMES for Tk GUI's, using images and colors --- to make some 'embellished' Tk GUI's.I may make a Version 3 demo, demonstrating a way of making buttons with rounded corners --- for buttons with varying text lengths on the buttons.
Holy Logos, Batman.And for another approach to making backgrounds for logos and icons, on the page GUI for Drawing a 3D Donut (a ring) with nice shaded edges, there are images like the following 'black hole' (or other colored hole) images.In fact, one of these images was used in my 'TitleBlock' utility, posted at A GUI for making 'Title Blocks' ... with text, fonts, colors, images, to make the following image --- made from an image placed on the canvas and then adding some text on the canvas, to the right of the image.And here is an example of using a combination of images and text in the 'TitleBlock' utility to pay homage to our favorite programming language.
More Types of Logo/Icon/Button/Bullet Images To ComeThis is just a start at making nice quality objects for embellishing Tk GUI's (and web pages) --- using Tk GUI's to make those objects.I have some other utilities (Tk scripts) in the works that can be used to make logo/icon/button/bullet images in somewhat different ways:
- f(x,y) 3D plot utilities
- 3D model examining utilities
- gradient spline utilities
- gradient f(x)/f(y) utilities
- enhancement of some of the 'nice edges' utilities above
