Want to show text in dialog box similar to "Help" menu of Cinema 4D(only text)



  • Hi,
    I was wondering if I can draw text similar to the text in "Help" section of Cinema 4D?
    I want to draw only the text similar to that of the help section. I tried with GeUserArea and GeClipMap. But I couldn't make the text look similar or function similar to that of help section (in terms of Font, font size and other formattings). Is there a way to achieve this 😇 ?

    Thanks In Advance.

    Hello,

    the "Help" does not use a GeUserArea.

    The "Help" is displayed using the HtmlViewerCustomGui GUI element. This GUI element encapsulates the local browser to display a HTML document.

    If you want to create the same user experience, you can simply use that GUI element to load a custom HTML document that presents your information.

    As always you can use the Q&A Functionality to mark a thread as a question.

    best wishes,
    Sebastian
