With javascript you can write and read text gadgets. How do you make that with monkey? Has anyone done that yet? Are there any links I should look at?

I want to modify text files. Parse ect into a program(sprite editor)

Can you precise your question :D do you want load some Text?

Have you ever testet Databuffer.Load() or LoadText()(or is it called LoadString(), i'm not sure :D)

In Blitz Plus you can use the textarea to edit text in. Does Monkey have a gadget like that? Javascript\html has textarea's to and monkey makes html code.

I was maybe thinking you had to modify the compiled code yourself to have it access (read from and to a textarea)

I want to make a sprite editor in monkey html5 that puts code in textarea's so you can copy it out.

Why not use the debug area under your app, if you just want to copy code out from there and not want to put something in.

Do you mean a 'textbox' GUI item? There are one or two user-built GUIs out there which presumably have something like that, or you could roll your own. Monkey doesn't have a built-in GUI library, though I think Monkey 2 is going to.
