Entering data into an editor
« on: April 05, 2008, 04:54:47 PM »

Hello all

I've created a window with an editor in it to act as a password entry field. There's an OK button to press. It worked great until about an hour ago then the editor would suddenly no longer appear on the screen. I must have changed something I guess but I can't imagine what and it looks to me like it should work.

The window script is:

global PasswordCracked;
var PasswordControl;
var PasswordText;
var CorrectPassword = "happy";
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
on "button"
  {
  PasswordControl = self.GetControl("PwEntry");
  PasswordText = PasswordControl.Text;
  Game.Msg("PasswordText is "+PasswordText);
  if(PasswordText == CorrectPassword)
    {
   PasswordCracked = true;
   Game.Msg("YIPPEE!!!!!");
   }
  else
    {
   Game.Msg("Aargh???");
   }
  }
 
The window contains an editor called PwEntry and a button called 'button'.

I used to get a cursor and a place to enter data, now I don't. Can anybody help please?

Cheers

I don't understand. So you see the window, you see the editor, but you can't enter text into it? Be sure you display the window in exclusive mode (window.GoExclusive()), otherwise it doesn't receive keyboard input.

That did it. I had removed the GoExclusive because I wanted another entity available outside the window. No matter, the window's transparent anyway so I'll just increase its size to cover the entity and add another transparent button.

Thanks Mnemonic. The more I learn about this engine, the more astonished I am at its capabilities.

Here's to you and your efforts.  ::beer
