color Tags MultiLineEditbox ?

Postby cCj » Mon Nov 29, 2010 05:59

Hello

can you use the color tags in MultiLineEditbox ? i tried using the tags but nothing changes.

log:

Code: Select all

02/12/2010 05:22:17 (Std)    ---- Version 0.7.4 (Build: Oct 11 2010 Microsoft Windows MSVC++ 10.0 32 bit) ----
02/12/2010 05:22:17 (Std)    ---- Renderer module is: CEGUI::OpenGLRenderer - Official OpenGL based 2nd generation renderer module.  TextureTarget support enabled via FBO extension. ----
02/12/2010 05:22:17 (Std)    ---- XML Parser module is: CEGUI::ExpatParser - Official expat based parser module for CEGUI ----
02/12/2010 05:22:17 (Std)    ---- Image Codec module is: SILLYImageCodec - Official SILLY based image codec ----
02/12/2010 05:22:17 (Std)    ---- Scripting module is: None ----




The code from tutorial :

Code: Select all


CEGUI::Window* textComponent = 
(CEGUI::Window*)CEGUI::WindowManager::getSingleton().getWindow("SomeMultilineEditbox"); // except im not trying this on statictext
textComponent->setText("This is just some text that shows how nicely [colour='FFFF0000']CEGUI
can format strings.[colour='FF00FF00'] and this is just colour [colour='FF0000FF'] formatting!");



gives this result:

I know for a fact that it isnt working...

does the multiLineEditbox need some property or something to be set?

Hi
i tried this code from tutorial:

Code: Select all


CEGUI::Window* textComponent = 
(CEGUI::Window*)CEGUI::WindowManager::getSingleton().getWindow("SomeMultilineEditbox"); // except im not trying this on statictext
textComponent->setText("This is just some text that shows how nicely [colour='FFFF0000']CEGUI
can format strings.[colour='FF00FF00'] and this is just colour [colour='FF0000FF'] formatting!");




but the tags show up and text is not colored.


could it be problem with the font?

As per this thread, the MLEB was not updated to make use of the new FormattedRenderedString component.

You only have a few options 1) wait for the CEGUI team to add support for FormattedRenderedString to Editbox widgets 2) add this support yourself 3) use the MLEB widget for editing, and a StaticText widget for display.

For example: create a layout with a StaticText widget with an overlapping MLEB widget. Hide the MLEB widget by default. When the StaticText widget is clicked, copy the StaticText text to the MLEB widget. When the user is finished editing the text in the MLEB (say by clicking anywhere outside the widget) copy the MLEB text back to the StaticText widget, and then hide the MLEB widget.

Does StaticText have multilple lines like MLEB ?

and can it be scrolled in scroll box?

Yes, StaticText is very powerful despite it's name :-)
