Multi-line edit with EditableTe​xt

by Potato4H3ad on ‎22-05-2012 15:12 PM

Although it may sound rather basic, currently it is not possible to enter multi-line text in the EditableText widget. Only single lines!

There is no carriage return option or property for this widget to allow this.

This will make it rather difficult to enable users to enter multiple lines of text (which I think is needed in lots of apps).

 

Suggestion:

Extend EditableText (or provide a new widget) where people can fill in multiple lines of text.

(Like Gtk TextView, System.Windows.Forms.TextBox in Microsoft .NET, or TMemo in Delphi)

 

Please let me know if you also think a multi-line editbox is useful ...
