An ImagePanel is a vgui2 element defined in the vgui_controls library, in the file ImagePanel.cpp. ImagePanels are available in all source games. An ImagePanel is a simple panel that displays an image.

Example Usage

Before creating anything, we first need to include the ImagePanel header file and use the vgui namespace.

#include <vgui_controls/ImagePanel.h>
using namespace vgui;

ImagePanels can be created via the c++ keyword new with a simple call to ImagePanel:

ImagePanel* imagePanel = new ImagePanel(this, "myPanel");

Once we have our ImagePanel created, we can now tell it which image to display:

imagePanel->SetImage(scheme()->GetImage("myimage", false));

Its important to note that scheme::GetImage begins from "materials/vgui" and no extensions should be provided. So, scheme()->GetImage("vgui/eye", false) would really point to "materials/vgui/vgui/eye.vmt".

And we're done!
