    Question I need TIPS for text object to android-extension (Q)

    Hello again!

    I need TIPS on Text object that works good on androids.

    Good features I'm looking for:
    Loading external/local texfiles.
    Set font, size, color and background,
    Scrollbars
    Adjustable width and Height

    I did have a look on edit box and Webview object but its not working good for me.
    The edit box doesn't load external or Local files on phone (I did put them in Binary Data) and it freaks out in edit mode (se pic).
    With the Webview Object I can't enter the correct expression to load a local html file. Any one who knows? Load online is not an option... Sorry

    All tips on how to get text with control, looking good on android is welcome

    For the negative minded ppl:
    I just need text to an app. Don't ask why. If all you do is complain and go offtopic, please, don't.

    Erm, MMF2 doesn't even have an extension with all of those features to my knowledge (I think the rich edit one is the closest one to what you are asking for. However, I don't understand all of the features you listed, so I don't know if it is what you are looking for, and I don't think it is compatible with the Android runtime). I also don't understand what you mean by:

    "I just need text to an app."

    I also don't understand what you mean by "backgrounds" as a feature.

    Can you clarify?

    I'm not usually negative on these forums. I also wouldn't call nivram negative on these forums, either. He is perhaps one of the most helpful people on these forums. Don't call someone negative just because you didn't like their answer to a question. I'm actually feeling a little offended by that "For the negative minded ppl" part (and the part after it). Complaining and going off-topic isn't all I do. It isn't all nivram does, either.

    Anyway, back on the main topic: Even though there isn't an object like that (at least not one that is Android-compatible) yet, it sounds like the kind of thing that could be handy. It would be nice to see an extension with all of those capabilities. Now if only there was an extension developer who could make such an object...

    Hi!

    @
    happygreenfrog - Did you even look at "Edit Box" before replay?(don't answer that)

    # I just need text to an app - Means I need to have text and information in my application. (Text that I can control in different ways, don't ask).

    # "backgrounds" as a feature. - Means I need to be able to set color and / or transparency to the text objects background. ("Background System Box" allows picture but no scroller as I can see).

    # About the negative part, its not for you as a private, I'll post a PM, coz its out of topic.

    The Edit Box has all the features but doesn't work very well in android and is grayed out if set to not editable.
    I don't get the Text to look the way I like.

    I can set it to have scrollers, adjust the font, set size to the box and load a text file to it.

    So, if you like and have time, help me to play with the settings to see if we can get this to look and work good in android.

    The Rich Edit object sounds like it would be more than enough for you. Also, if you are having a hard time getting saving to work using the edit box object, then you could save it to an INI file...

    I couldn't get The Rich Edit object to work for android, I guess you found a The Rich Edit object extension that works? Where could I get it?
    I get full control of save vars and strings to the INI (Not asking about save) . The problem is to load external textfiles to the Edit Box object in android (works on the computer, & I did put the files in the binary)........

    I don't think it is ported to Android. If someone were to take up the job of porting it to Android, though, then that would be awesome, right?

    A really good text object would be great.
