Adding Views

Views are the building bocks of a vizia GUI and are used to visually present model data and to act as controls which, when interacted with, send events to mutate model data.

We'll learn more about models and events in the following sections.

Adding a label

We can declare a Label view with the following code:

use vizia::prelude::*;

fn main() {
        Label::new(cx, "Hello Vizia");
    .inner_size((400, 150))

The first argument to the new() method of the label is a mutable reference to Context, shortened to cx. This allows the view to build itself into the application. For the second argument we pass it a string to display.
