Class Tree


The wide edit window type has the same functionality as the regular edit window, but it supports wide strings for non ASCII input. It is mainly used when typing messages to friends or in the chat window.

Templates are used to decrease the amount of text needed to create an edit box, the _editw/_editw_scroll and _end_edit/_end_editw_scroll 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 editw;


_editw_scroll( MessageMemberMessage, 0, 0, 100, 60 )
	properties {
		vec2 textAlignment = TA_LEFT, TA_VCENTER;
		float	maxTextLength = 512;
