[Q] HOWTO: Scroll frame with EditBox
 
Greetings,

What approach should I use to develop an EditBox frame with a scroll bar - like a Chat frame but with the ability to copy the text (in whole or in part) to the player's clipboard?

I've done a standard message frame with a scroll bar using the "FauxScrollFrameTemplate". But given my experience trying to adapt my code to use an EditBox with the Faux scroll frame have met with little success. Any advice?

Thanks

You can Highlight selected text but you can't programmatically access the clipboard only CTRL-C/CTRL-V etc.

Lua Code:
  1. local backdrop = {
  2.     bgFile = "Interface/BUTTONS/WHITE8X8",
  3.     edgeFile = "Interface/GLUES/Common/Glue-Tooltip-Border",
  4.     tile = true,
  5.     edgeSize = 8,
  6.     tileSize = 8,
  7.     insets = {
  8.         left = 5,
  9.         right = 5,
  10.         top = 5,
  11.         bottom = 5,
  12.     },
  13. }
  14.  
  15.  
  16. local f = CreateFrame("Frame", "MyScrollMessageTextFrame", UIParent)
  17. f:SetSize(150, 150)
  18. f:SetPoint("CENTER")
  19. f:SetFrameStrata("BACKGROUND")
  20. f:SetBackdrop(backdrop)
  21. f:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0)
  22. f.Close = CreateFrame("Button", "$parentClose", f)
  23. f.Close:SetSize(24, 24)
  24. f.Close:SetPoint("TOPRIGHT")
  25. f.Close:SetNormalTexture("Interface/Buttons/UI-Panel-MinimizeButton-Up")
  26. f.Close:SetPushedTexture("Interface/Buttons/UI-Panel-MinimizeButton-Down")
  27. f.Close:SetHighlightTexture("Interface/Buttons/UI-Panel-MinimizeButton-Highlight", "ADD")
  28. f.Close:SetScript("OnClick", function(self)
  29.     self:GetParent():Hide()
  30. end)
  31. f.Select = CreateFrame("Button", "$parentSelect", f, "UIPanelButtonTemplate")
  32. f.Select:SetSize(14, 14)
  33. f.Select:SetPoint("RIGHT", f.Close, "LEFT")
  34. f.Select:SetText("S")
  35. f.Select:SetScript("OnClick", function(self)
  36.     self:GetParent().Text:HighlightText() -- parameters (start, end) or default all
  37.     self:GetParent().Text:SetFocus()
  38. end)
  39.  
  40. f.SF = CreateFrame("ScrollFrame", "$parent_DF", f, "UIPanelScrollFrameTemplate")
  41. f.SF:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", f, 12, -30)
  42. f.SF:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT", f, -30, 10)
  43. f.Text = CreateFrame("EditBox", nil, f)
  44. f.Text:SetMultiLine(true)
  45. f.Text:SetSize(180, 170)
  46. f.Text:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", f.SF)
  47. f.Text:SetPoint("BOTTOMRIGHT", f.SF)
  48. f.Text:SetMaxLetters(99999)
  49. f.Text:SetFontObject(GameFontNormal)
  50. f.Text:SetAutoFocus(false)
  51. f.Text:SetScript("OnEscapePressed", function(self) self:ClearFocus() end)
  52. f.SF:SetScrollChild(f.Text)
  53.  
  54. f.Text:SetText("bfs fasjdf dsaf adsj fasjkf bsafjsaf bjs fasjkf bjsf basf badsjkf dsakfbhaskf asjkf asjkf skaf sak fsk fdsaf kkl l fjds rewpwfrjpo foewf jjfwe fpwfevzv mcvn  qo fnaw[ffgngnerf we foiweffgorenfg[f fewfn sdskfn asdf sp ffq[ofkgbhp    i regp nIF N 'OFGRE  NG;G KG IGN ;EFPIREG REG  ZG;  ergregp esg gg-ero  rdf45540 4y   q8wffn ")

Thanks. I was never expecting to copy/paste programmatically. But, that's a nano-nit. Thanks for the direction. It helped a lot.

Cheers
