String Editor Contents

Returns the current contents of the string editor

Syntax

contentStr = String Editor Contents

Description

The string editor allows you to take key presses from the user and use them to edit a string of text in a similar manner to a word processor. An overview of the string editor can be found in the String Editor section of the Keyboard Input Guide.

The 'String Editor Contents' command returns the current string that is in the string editor. You can use this along with the String Editor Cursor command to get all the information you need to draw the text being edited on the screen. An example of this can be found in the String Editor section.

You can change the string being edited with Set String Editor Contents and can let the user edit it by inputting raw keys from the Keyboard Raw Key command with the String Editor Input command.

See also the Set String Editor Contents, String Editor Input, String Editor Cursor and Set String Editor Cursor commands.
