Button text

I know I am probably missing the info somewhere but i am trying to figure out how to add multiple lines to a 28x28 menu button. Are there formatting codes i can use to get a new line ? For instance i use now " TargBore" that just fits would like " Healer" "Target" "Bore" in three lines. I am using 12 or 10 dpi for the text style. Maybe a caret or backslash code, ctrl-something ? Anyway i havent had any luck so far. This is for Eq and i am trying to make them look like the games hotbuttons which will do 3 lines the way i have them set now.

Re: Button text

Your only option currently would be to use a custom menu.


Some examples are:
viewtopic.php?f=44&t=3951
viewtopic.php?f=44&t=3992

When creating the buttons you can set the text in them using <TEXT> elements from LavishGUI.

You can also layer a bunch of things around too to be in your buttons.

Dynamic text is a bit harder though, because ISBoxer is trying to set the button text; I cant recall if you can set this element to Wrap in a custom menu. I think I'd given up with the longer values by the time I'd figured this out :).

Or pre-render some images to use on the buttons

Ohh, yes. If you are smart with this too, you could have the image as a background and any dynamic text value carefully located in the middle, so it overlays on the image....
