Class Tree


An edit window should be used to get text input from the player. It is used for entering a server password, player name, clan tag, renaming the fireteam and chat text among other things. If the edit window should support non ASCII characters then editw should be used instead.

Templates are used to decrease the amount of text needed to create an edit box, the _edit and _end_edit templates should be used.

This class may be used in the GUIs. It will inherit all properties, flags, functions and events from UIWindow.

Window type:

type edit;


_edit( createServerName, 100, 0, 100, BUTTON_HEIGHT )
	_cvar_set_edit( si_name )
	_draw_left_edit_label( localize( "guis/mainmenu/servername" ), COLOR_TEXT, 100 )
	properties {
		float maxTextLength = 30;
