[FREE] TextboxUtil - ⌨️ Additional Tools To The Built-In TextBox Component!

No, working fine for me.

image

Just ran a Do-It.

Please restart your companion after you have upgraded the extension.

So why it isn't working for me?

Restart the companion via "Reset Connection", exit the Companion app, and then connect again. Try.

Yes it worked now thanks.

Is it possible for you to copy this block from taifuntextbox?

I do not (yet) have plans to implement this into my extension, because I usually will not work on icons.

ok I wanted to decrease amount of extensions used that's why I asked you else no problem.

OnTextChanged

This event is invoked when the text fo a registered TextBox has changed.

Parameters: textBox = component

AddTextChangedListener

Registers the component so that when the text of this TextBox has changed, it fires the OnTextChanged event.

Parameters: textBox = component

  • Custom context menus for your TextBoxes (the Copy, Autofill, Paste etc. toolbar)

Show the context menu for this TextBox. If the context menu is shown, return true, else false.

Parameters: textBox = component, x = number (float), y = number (float)

SetShadow

Sets the shadow for the text with the specified blur radius and color, and the specified distance from text position.

Parameters: textBox = component, radius = number (float), dx = number (float), dy = number (float), color = color

  • I have updated the SetInputType block. Now, with the SetInputType block, you can set the input type of a TextBox that is not in the property blocks.

For example, if you want the user to input a postal address. You look at the property blocks, and postal address is not available.

image

Don't panic! You can still do it with this extension. Go to the Android Developers documentation for InputType and you see TYPE_TEXT_VARIATION_POSTAL_ADDRESS.

Copy the constant value, which is 112. Done!

@Gordon_Lu Whenever I click on image in block mode
I get

Edit: It only happens when you first click on taifun tools then you click textboxutil but it's goes after 2-3 clicks.

It’s not the extensions fault, it’s just a bug in MIT App Inventor when switching extensions. Just reload the page.

Bruh, you need to add a Textbox Component in the parameter of every method for this to work.

No Textbox = No use of this extension.

@Gordon_Lu Please don't add this or something will be messed trust me because this line color can by changed by setting accent color of the app also it doesn't works in ai2 companion you will have to export apk to see the changes :slight_smile:

Yes, but if your accent color is orange, you might want to change the underline color of the text box to red tell the user that there is something wrong.

The accent color feature shouldn't work in the Companion because it writes to the Manifest. But programmatically setting it should work.

@Gordon_Lu great extension and thanks for creating it.

Do you maybe know is it possible to detect the TAB with your extension?
I have a barcode scanner that after the scanned text sends the TAB and would like to detect when this happens so that I could trigger a code block. I know that there is an ENTER listener in the Taifuns Textbox extension, but do you maybe know how to detect the TAB?

Thanks,
Davor

I haven't tried that out yet, but it seems impossible with my extension, because "tab" is an invisible character.
