TextField


    Jan 21 2011 | 6:20 pm
    I'm updating a UI object that, on Max4, used a TEHandle for working with user keyboard input (the object was MacOS-only, though if we can get it cross-platform now, that would make a lot of people happy).
    It seems like the TextField is the most appropriate way to go. YesNo?
    There are some problems, though. Are there any messages for setting/getting the bounds of the current text selection (ie equivalents for TESetSelect and an equivalent getter)?
    I see from the uitextfield example that inserting and retrieving text is handled with messages ("insertboxtext", "gettextptr") that I'm not finding documented. Are there more?

      Hi Peter.
      I had the same problem as you with the selection bounds some times ago - http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=29841
      ... and as you can see, the answer was no :(

      Thanks, Andrea.
      Unfortunately, this is a make-or-break issue for the intended usage. One might have hoped that somewhere among the undocumented messages…
