View Full Version : Additive descriptions in numbercontrols?

May 14th, 2006, 14:12
Is there a way to combine the field name plus some additional text in the description of a numbercontrol?

For example:

<numbercontrol name="weapon1dmgmod">
<bounds rect="400,556,34,23" />
<displaysign />
<noreset />
<hideonvalue value="0" />
<description field="weapon1" />
<tabtarget next="weapon1critical" prev="weapon1damage" />

I know that will display as a description the contents of the first weapon field. But is it possible to have a text string be displayed along with the field contents, meaning to append a string to the end of the field contents?

I'd like to know the answer to that too!

I don't think there is a way to do this in the current version of FG. In 2.0 there would be but I remember trying to do this in 1.05 and trying various methods with no luck.

How about multiple string descriptions one after another?
Can FG handle that?

You could do this but have to define a bounding box for the value. Unless its the same each time there is going to be an uneven gap but it might suffice depending on the situation.

Now this sounds QUITE interesting... Could you give an example?
