  • I have no errors. Try to close "console.lua" file and refresh project files (by right clicking on "Files" in project files section and hit "Refresh"). Open "console.lua" again and check if something changed.

    according to this example your code looks right:
    -- then we set the layout: width, height, line spacing and justify center
    textfield:setLayout( {w=200, h=100, lineSpacing=7, flags=FontBase.TLF_CENTER} )
    https://wiki.giderosmobile.com/index.php/TextField:setLayout
    Available since: Gideros 2017.10

    @koeosstudio can you copy/paste your code please?

  • @rrraptor just wanna ask if tried my code above? Maybe my version of gideros is issue.
  • @MoKaLux I will try your example. Will update the result in a moment :smile:
  • @MoKaLux @rrraptor Heres my code. My gideros version is 2019.5
    console = Core.class(Sprite)
     
    function console:init()
    	local fnt = TTFont.new("Assets/cour.ttf", 47)
    	self.txt = TextField.new(fnt, nil)
    	self.txt:setPosition(50, 50)
    	self.txt:setLayout({w=200, h=100, lineSpacing=7, flags=FontBase.TLF_LEFT})
    	self:addChild(self.txt)
    	self.allowType = true
    end

    I tried your code I had no errors but there was no text.
    To have some text you need to change your code a little bit:
    console = Core.class(Sprite)
    function console:init(sometext)
    	local fnt = TTFont.new("Assets/arial.ttf", 47)
    	self.txt = TextField.new(fnt, sometext)
    	self.txt:setPosition(50, 50)
    	self.txt:setLayout({w=200, h=100, lineSpacing=7, flags=FontBase.TLF_LEFT})
    	self:addChild(self.txt)
    	self.allowType = true
    end
     
    local myconsole = console.new("this is a sample text.")
    stage:addChild(myconsole)
    PS: I changed font to arial because I did not have cour.ttf
    PS2: gideros 2019.10
    PS3: if you don't understand some part just ask us :)

    Thank you very much for the great answers. Fixed it by creating a new project and copy pasting the exact same code. It's a bit strange but nevermind. :D :D
    By the way, here's my final code : a simple Texfield with typwriter effect and basic scroll function.
    console = Core.class(Sprite)
     
    function console:init()
    	local fnt = TTFont.new("Assets/cour.ttf", 20)
    	self.txt = TextField.new(fnt, nil)
    	self.txt:setLayout({w = 300, flags=FontBase.TLF_LEFT})
    	self.txt:setAnchorPoint(0, 0)
    	self:addChild(self.txt)
    	self.allowType = true
     
    	-- Simple scroll function
    	local z = nil
     
    	self:addEventListener(Event.MOUSE_DOWN, function (event)
    		z = event.y - self.txt:getY()
    	end)
    	self:addEventListener(Event.MOUSE_MOVE, function (event)
    		self.txt:setY(event.y - z)
    	end)
    end 
     
    function console:tWrite(txtToPrint)
    	if self.allowType then
    		self.allowType = false
    		local i = 1
    		self.txt:setText(self.txt:getText()..'\n')
     
    		local function typeFunc()
    			self.txt:setText(self.txt:getText()..string.sub(txtToPrint, i, i))
    			i = i + 1
     
    			if i > string.len(txtToPrint) then
    				self.allowType = true
    				self:removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, typeFunc)
    			end
    		end
     
    		self:addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, typeFunc)
    	end
    end
     
     
    -- Test 
     
    application:setLogicalDimensions(480, 800)
    local myconsole = console.new(1)
    stage:addChild(myconsole)
     
    -- Generate sample txt 
    	local s = ""
    	for i = 1, 10 do
    	s = s.."TextField with typewriter effect. Drag to Scroll.\n\n"
    	end
     
    -- Print
    myconsole:tWrite(s)
