How do I display a help text in the GUI using CodeLab?


Recommended Posts

I need to display a text with additional information.

This text should have a button Show / Hide to make the interface more attractive.

In the case of longer texts (max. 255 chr) would show only 4 or 5 lines and text box

it should have a scroll bar to browse to the end of the text.


It is possible to implement such control (InfoText) in CodeLab user interface designer in next version?

If you need to stay within CodeLab, I suggest using the help system: http://boltbait.com/pdn/codelab/help/tutorial6.php


If you've moved your code into Visual Studio, there is a way to add small amounts of help text right into the UI.

For an example of how this looks, check my Effects > Object > Old Feather effect.


If this is what you want, check out my Hue/Saturation+ project here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/28613-x

You can download the Visual Studio project in that thread. In it, you can see the help text between the 4th and 5th slider.

This is not something I will be adding to CodeLab as it has situational dependencies.
