Multi-line text edit

Post by bx_joscha »

Will there be support for a multi-line text edit in the future? I can only find a multi-line text label.

Currently there is no plan. Privately I started adopting the scintilla editor to work with VSTGUI. If you're interested I can create a GitHub repository with it.

Cheers

Thank you Arne, but I have already started developing a CMultiLineTextEdit. It is already working for Cocoa using the NSScrollView and NSTextView. Now, I will begin the Windows implementation. I guess scintilla is completely overkill for what I need. I just need a plain UTF8 text edit field without rich text, etc.

I just found this old topic because I was looking for a cross platform text edit control.
On Windows I just add the ES_MULTILINE flag and it works, but a cross platform solution would be nice.
