Build GUI Applications With IMGUI

Immediate mode graphical user interface or IMGUI makes use of the graphical card to render GUI widgets on the screen.

Get The Code

Go to and download the files in ZIP format.

You can also clone the repo.

Compile and Run the Example

Open the example folder that comes with the IMGUI code base.

<your path>\imgui-master\examples

In this folder you can find plenty of examples for the major GUI APIs.

To run the example project. open imgui_example.sln

right click the wanted API (in this example I will use opengl3) and click “Set As Startup Project”.

Press F5 to compile (or use the toolbar Debug->Start Debugging)

you should see the IMGUI example rendering on your screen.
