Input text

  • Hi.

    How i can create input text ?

    Thanks for answers.

  • @Reveres please explain more and clearly, information you provided is not enough for us to understand what you want.

  • @FoxtrotDelta I am guessing they want to know how to get input from the player using the on-screen input box, like Map-Editor does when you search for something. I've never done it so I don't know the answer...

    I'm waiting for someone that does, so I can learn as well. :D Or if nobody replies, I'll find out and post back here, whichever comes first.

  • @Reveres Here's one way you can do it.

    int maxInputLength = 20;
    var inputText = Game.GetUserInput(maxInputLength);

    That will create a small box in the middle of the screen where you can enter a message. The maximum length of that message is anything up to 60 characters.

    What the user types is returned in the inputText variable but that variable can be called anything you like.

    Edit: Deleted that line because I was going off the default window title.

  • To get input from user.
    string got = Game.GetUserInput(7);

    7 is amount of charcters

  • Just to add to what myself and @aimless have posted...

    The input box has a maximum number of characters on a single line of 68. If you choose a number higher than 68, the box will have more lines.

    So if you did:
    var inputText = Game.GetUserInput(255);

    You would get a box that is 68 characters wide and 4 lines high.

    Game.GetUserInput() also has 4 overloads, that let you set the WindowTitle and DefaultText properties, as well as the maxLength.

  • If you're not using ScriptHookVDotNet,

    using namespace GTA::Natives::Gameplay;

    DISPLAY_ONSCREEN_KEYBOARD(true, "titleText(gxtLabelOnly)", "", "prePresentText", "", "", "", maxChars + 1);

    result = "If ESC is pressed";


  • Yup it is what i'm looking for.
    PS.: How can I change position of "on-screen input box" ?

    Sorry for my bad english

  • @Reveres You can't change the position as far as I can tell, it always appears in the middle of the screen.

    Your English is fine, you never have to apologise for that. :slight_smile:

  • Ok thanks :)

  • You can make a custom input box from scratch if you want it at a different position, but the default gta one is in the middle.
