Hey All,

I am planning on having the user/player input their name into a text box for a game I am making, but don’t see any dedicated nodes for this purpose. How would I set something like this up?

I don’t need the whole process unless you are so inclined, but point me towards the nodes and possibly the hierarchy you would use to achieve something like this.

Thanks in advance!

If it’s one line of text, went not use a LineEdit node? You can check the text in it, check for events in it, and even set up keyboard shortcuts for it.

I saw that node and thought it was just a label lol. Thanks for your response! do you know if that will work on IOS/Android

Since the engine is cross-platform friendly, in guessing they do work on Android/iOS.
