simple text writer / notepad

Post by MSandro » Aug 29th, '17, 11:49

This is a small text writer / notepad made in under 15 minutes using GP.
I wanted to try out how well GP is displaying text using the "draw text [] x () y () [color]" block.
The text is not realy readable in fullscreen mode and I can not use a dfferent text scale or font.

The tool is useless but it shows you how to make a simple text input box. With a bit more work it should be posible to implement a cursor and arrow key controll.

You can input all letters form A to Z uppercase and lowercase also numbers 0 -9 and special characters like !"% and more. Unfortunately it is not posible to input characters like ,.- ;:_ because GP is not detecting those keys.
