MULTISTRING field size and font



  • Hi,

    Is there a way to set the string height and font?
    I prefer sometimes to have it be monospaced.
    And was hoping that SCALE_V would but scale it to fit the attributes manager height, but it has no effect at all. What does it do?

  • Hi @rsodre, unfortunately this is not possible, the only workaround is to create your own custom GUI.

  • As for SCALE_V, this normally works... but all groups above the GUI element need to have the same property:

    CONTAINER Tcommentarytag
    {
    	NAME Tcommentarytag;
    	INCLUDE Tbase;
    
    	GROUP ID_TAGPROPERTIES
    	{
    		SCALE_V;
    
    		STRING COMMENTARY_STRING { CUSTOMGUI MULTISTRING; SCALE_V; }
    	}
    }
    

    This way, it works - remove the SCALE_V from the GROUP and it won't work any more (because the group then is sized only to the necessary minimum vertically, and the string field simply doesn't get any additional space as the group has eaten it all up).



  • Thanks @Cairyn I overlooked this part of the question and I agree that if you want the SCALE_V to works, of course, the hosted group have to be scaled also otherwise you will see no effect.

    But to define the font size and font you have to do your own custom GUI.
