Clickable Package

The Clickable Package provides a number of items like buttons that can be clicked. Some items can be dragged. It has been tested in both Processing and Processing.js and works in both.

Your browser does not handle Processing Sketches

It may take a minute for the sketch files to load.

A simple demo using some of the Clickable items including a menu and menu bar, button, list box (with optional circle buttons), checkbox, a multistate circle button, combo box, and vertical scroll bar. There are over 20 different gadgets in the package. The classes are stored in the files
