Short example

Here is a short example, to show you how simple it is to use SFML:

#include <SFML/Audio.hpp>
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
int main()
{
// Create the main window
sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode(800, 600), "SFML window");
// Load a sprite to display
sf::Texture texture;
if (!texture.loadFromFile("cute_image.jpg"))
return EXIT_FAILURE;
sf::Sprite sprite(texture);
// Create a graphical text to display
sf::Font font;
if (!font.loadFromFile("arial.ttf"))
return EXIT_FAILURE;
sf::Text text("Hello SFML", font, 50);
// Load a music to play
sf::Music music;
if (!music.openFromFile("nice_music.ogg"))
return EXIT_FAILURE;
// Play the music
music.play();
// Start the game loop
while (window.isOpen())
{
// Process events
sf::Event event;
while (window.pollEvent(event))
{
// Close window: exit
if (event.type == sf::Event::Closed)
window.close();
}
// Clear screen
window.clear();
// Draw the sprite
window.draw(sprite);
// Draw the string
window.draw(text);
// Update the window
window.display();
}
return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}
