ok, to anyone who cares, I have been trying to create a workable function that will edit the text within a string to a decent extent, i.e. basic functions, printable cahracters, enter, left and right arrows, backspacing, and also being able to show the cursor in the correct space.
so far i have had very little success, if anyone has a method of doing this i would be most grateful for same advice as to how to go about it. new lines are the killer when trying to get the cursor in the right spot, that and inserting. I have even tried using a two dimensional character array, rows and columns, but that has its problems too.
I just want some advice so that i can have some idea which method i should try to use. thanks in advance
