  • Multiline Textbox

    Hey guys,

    Im looking to create a custom notebook skin where I can just input simple things like a grocery list or reminders for the day. I know we have notepad already available, but I was hoping to use a text box and OSK in order to get a more integrated look. I have things working well for the most part but for some reason I can't get the text box to allow more than one line for input. I've tried programming a button to use the "CRLF" command as per rr's documentation, which should act as a return key, but have had no luck. Pressing enter on my computer's keyboard also just makes the computer ding and won't skip down a line either. Ive made the texbox certainly large enough to accomodate multiple lines. Anything special I need to do in the code for the textbox itself?

    This is what I have:
    T01,63,114,408,193,63,114,255,0,0,0,22,"HandelGotD Lig",,"TEXT",

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated

    Text boxes in RR are very basic and were never meant for extensive use like you're trying to do. The best thing to do is to use labels codes like "=$MyNote1$" then just add buttons or clickable areas to use OSKTOCMD/OSKTOVAR/SAVETOINI/etc to set the variable and save it so it displaus and re-loads later automatically. This would actually be one of the most basic uses for it and your labels can be multi-line if you wanted.
