The mapper can set chars to a room with setRoomChar( roomID, char ) but I want to get them.

I just added this to my repo. I don't use it, but it's simple enough to add so why not.

A few things, if possible/desirable. I ran into these limitations trying to code something a while back, if there are workarounds or the suggestions have been implemented already, my bad.

1) Different sizes of text on a MiniConsole.
2) A way to return the position of the mouse when not clicked
3) A way to create windows that accept text input, with a function to be run upon hitting enter. Text would be the arguments.

1) not going to be possible, since they are similar to the main window, and for speed efficiency, all text sizes are the same

Hello, I'd just like to put a request in.

A friend of mine would like to convert to mudlet, but she's a houseleader and has been using a chat script for a really long time to avoid being overwhelmed by a lot of clans, tells, ht/ct, etc. However, she doesn't have a wheel on her mouse, so she can't scroll in the one that's available in these forums. Her laptop doesn't take the port for the wheel mouse she has, so she's stuck on mush, sadly.

So what I'd like to request is a scrollbar option on the right side of miniConsole, I think it would help mudlet by making it a little more accessible.

Thanks!
Rean

I agree with Rean here. I don't have a mouse wheel on my laptop and I hate trying to get the console to scroll back with my laptop.

Any chance of a function that lets us set the contents of the command textbox? I often find myself wanting to work off an existing block of text - editing clothing designs, for example. At the moment, I have to select the text in the main buffer, paste it into the command line, and strip out the newlines before I can edit it.

A function like setCommandText(<string>) would be very useful. Have a getCommandText(<string>) for completeness.

An alternative would be to give us access to the gmcp editor interface: new_text = showEditor(<existing text>)

You already can set the text (printCmdLine and echoCmdLine), and I've coded in ctrl+shift+v which strips out newlines - that didn't make it into test4 but hopefully will make it into the next release.

We are missing a getCmdLine function though, so that's still necessary.
