Isaac (et. al.),
As promised, the widget for keypad/remote-control text entry has arrived. Not
terribly sophisticated at this point, but useable (once you get the hang of
it). It's a UI challenge to try and do all this using only ten keys.
One *major* kludge: It's setting it's internal geometry based on how much
horizontal space it got and the size of the current font (for the vertical).
It's still a bit of mystery to me how themedmenu.cpp sets geometry, as I
can't seem to find any calls that do it ... And yet it works ... very odd.
I'll look further, of course, but if anyone has a 2 second explanation, that
might save me some time. Thanks.
