Daniel one last quick one, i managed to get scenebuilder integrated into intelij
but its pretty slow and cumbersome

would rather use it as standalone and then import the data into intelij is this practical? how do you go about it?

What do you guys think of scene builder 2 for making basic gUIs in java?
is there something better, or would you advise just learning to code with javafx
or both?

" So a text GUI gives me form data input without the overhead of a windowing system."

works great!!!

But i just realised this cant go any further without using OOP
it will be a nightmare to assign teams points etc without using OOP

back to the drawing board

thanks again

i cant seem to line up my team league stats with the descriptors (matches played, matches won, matches drawn etc)
now i know what you thinking but i have handled the team name and length it works great
so all i can think of is having it 01 02 as points will run up to 80s
and from 1 to 2 digits it breaks the line horribly

is there a way to format it to use 01 02 etc

or is there a better way of doing this?

hi guys

feel i want to start making GUIs even for my small programs
sick of trying to space things out on the console etc
would be more fun to start using GUIs

been looking at
pyqt and kivy

both have their pros and cons
and i know nothing except there are loads of tutorials available for both

which is the better for the following criteria
support and community
ease of use
learning something useful (i assume both have been around a long time and arent going anywhere)

or maybe you have a better option
