I'm remaking a chat room for my game. I want the text to be transparent and be over the playing field. But I also want it to scroll and be able to handle bold, italics, etc through the event editor. It would have to be able to add text though the event editor as well.

I tried using the rich edit box (no transparency), formatted text box (no text entering from event editor), edit box (no transparency), a string (no scrolling). What object can I use?

If you want transparency then the rich edit box is it.
When I get home I'll make an example for you.

EDIT: Sorry the object was the Formatted Text Object I got confused.

EDIT 2: Sorry again, for some reason I thought it was editable. The only way to achieve what you want is to make a custom engine with strings. I'll see if I can put something together for ya.

HERE! A custom Chat box Engine.

It allows you to format each line separately!
It has scrolling!
Its Completely Transparent.

http://www.jsoftgames.com/uploads/customChatBox.zip

It uses the following extensions for the engine-

-String
-String Parser 2
-Edit Box
-List Object

For Debugging, but not required if you want to paste it into your project the following extensions are also used-

-Color Selector

Enjoy!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the only thing not transparent is the edit box you use to enter a message, but that can be fixed by making a string that holds what the edit box is typing. It shouldn't be too big of a deal though.

thanks for that UrbanMonk, but I already solved it myself Your example does look cool though and it should be in the article section. My way was much easier though. I used two detectors while yours used fast loops...
