Popup field?

Post by pink » Mon Feb 18, 2019 5:08 pm

I want to be able to create a "form" widget. It was suggested to me that I could popup a field for the user to edit text which can then get saved back into the widget.

Is this true? if so, how do I do this?

Have a look at revIDECreateTransientTextField and associated handlers in the IDE - this is how we do it with the navigation bar property inspector.

You could modal a temporary substack with a field and set the text property of the widget from it.
