In-game text editor, native or NGUI

Hey guys.

I’m wondering, how would you have an in-game text editor?

Suppose I have a journal in my game where I’m free to write my own notes (think Baldur’s Gate). This should allow for clicking, highlighting, copy/pasting, and so on. Pretty much like notepad or something.

Is this possible natively, or with something like NGUI? Anybody have any ideas?

I’m mainly talking Standalone but solutions for iOS / Android are also welcome.


You can use GUI.TextArea. It works pretty much like notepad would. As simple as can be.

In NGUI you can have multiline editable label.

You can even put it inn a scroll pane.

Put Im stilll working out how to make it scroll properly… atm my scroll bars move it the wrong direction
