Major Feature Question
« on: April 16, 2012, 12:50:22 AM »
Hi there, I build quiz applications and I am porting over my quiz apps over to unity, I am about to pull the trigger on buying NGUI, but I need to know if NGUI supports the feature I need out of the like unity's GUI does by default. Otherwise im stuck with default unity.

I attached 2 screenshots to better explain the question, the data that I load into the rows are variables and can be one line or many many lines, I know NGUI supports multiline but does it support the ability to have them stacked where as the top row data expands it "moves" the other rows down basically autosizing the form as a whole. Im looking for the ability to auto-expand without overlapping on to the next row, but rather pushing the row down.

Thanks in advanced,
Dustin

I get email notifications of all topics and responses, so if I'm at my PC, I tend to reply quickly. :)

that is exactly what i needed to know thanks....ok next thing...i have a feature request...I have built an add-on for unity a custom html parser, I am thinking of integrating it into ngui....do you guys want it?  Because I plan on putting it into ngui myself. If you don't want it I may just sell it as an add-on if you guys are ok with that.

so far i can support <p><br><i><b><strong><sup><sub>...and a few others

Also i support every html element code ;) like this &#188; &#189; &#190;

Lastly I also support remote and local images.  I so far have built a custom label to display the parsed information.

Here is the demo you can test out all the tags and images and html codes:

notice the subscripts on that image

That's pretty cool, I suggest you create an add-on with that. I'm sure a few people will be interested.

But with a bitmap font how you do this? You can't have bold, italic and underline at the same time. You have to export 3 diferent bitmap fonts and you can't combine them or I'm I wrong?

You'll have trouble doing that with NGUI, seeing as NGUI uses pre-created fonts. If it was simple, I would have done it a while ago. ;)
