Actually, as the old joke goes, it's not really "rich" text, just comfortably off.
That is, it supports only some fairly basic features compared to a fully-featured rich text editor.
Supported features include :
- multi-level undo/redo
- 'undo' can be reset (e.g. after 'save', or 'open')
- set text style of a chunk by tool button or (sample) menu
- undo includes text style setting
- simple (enclosed) tool bars with text or icon buttons - optional of course.
- each kind of button comes in two sizes
- button tool bars in any one of four placements (top,right,bottom,left)
- view scaling
- call-backs to let the app know when undo/redo are available (e.g. to adjust menus)
- no front scripts used.
FieldGroup is a standalone group which can be simply copy/paste'd into your own stacks, and provides a (moderately) rich set of text field features. You can have as many of these fieldgroups as you want - each is entirely self-contained.
Easy to use - handlers/functions are well documented and (I hope) straightforward to understand and use.The sample stack contains the handler documentation. The downloadable stack includes the group, ready to be copy/pasted, as part of a simple sample app which shows common uses.
Current the stack can be downloaded here.
Released under the MIT license - see the full text within the script of the group in the sample stack.
