[v2.0] Tasty Text - (colors/wrapping/align + more!)

Post by markgo » Mon Apr 15, 2013 3:28 pm

A library aimed at creating easily scrollable and wrap-able texts. It requires the utf8 library from Kyle Smith.

Current version : 2.0
Version 2.0 is a complete rewrite. It's new and improved!

Pretty neat. You may want to take a look at RichText, which has the ability insert images and change fonts and colours mid-text.

Hey thanks for the link. I'm trying to keep it strictly textual, but I'll take a look at how you handle colors.

Bump for added ability to color texts, add images, and do any neat text effect.

Fantastic work, just what I need. Will give you a extra section in my credits ^.^

Found two tiny bugs: When your text starts with a line break ("\nMy text") then it prints just nothing and RowCount is 0. I solved this just by removing the line breaks at the start of the string.

In function text.new, when you give a non string to parameter str it chrashes. I solved this by add a tostring at the call createRowStrings(t,tostring(str),taghandlers)
