Very cool extension… Thank you, @Taifun


Thank a lot …This is super useful


This is very useful


@Taifun e @Italo Is it possible to use the cursor position function in the Notifier .ShowTextDialog option?


this would be a task for another extension…


@Taifun Can I sponsor the creation of this extension? If so, what would be the value?


can you explain your use case?
the ShowTextDialog opens an empty textbox… what would it help to be able to set the cursor position?


I’m using the ‘.ShowTexInputDialog’ block of the Dialogs extension of ‘Helios aka Vishwas Adiga’. In this block there is the ‘defaultText’ option that receives text from a variable and therefore does not open an empty field. The drawback is that the cursor is at the beginning of the field and not at the end of the text.
Taifun Dialogs


in this case Helios aka Vishwas Adiga should modify that method in the Dialogs extension accordingly…


@Taifun Thank you for your attention!


can update add backgroud image to textbox?


yes, that’s possible
note: the background image will stretch according to the textbox size…

if you like to be the sponsor of that method, then please transfer 10 USD via Paypal to https://paypal.me/puravidaapps/10
