Rich text is able to include images and formatting.

It can be created using XML like syntax, as seen in parseText.

Related commands: parseText, composeText, ctrlSetStructuredText, hintC_structuredText

Code Examples:

_separator1 = parseText "<br />------------------------<br />";

_image = "\ca\ui\textures\aus_flag.paa";

_txt = composeText [image _image,"Heading Text",_separator1,"Content"];

hint _txt;


Line break

Line breaks can also be inserted via the composeText and lineBreak commands

<br /> 


Images can also be inserted via the composeText and image commands

<img image='red.paa' />


In format RGB or ARGB

<t color='#ff0000'>Red text</t>
<t color='#99ffffff'>Transparent white text</t>
<t colorLink='#0000ff'><a href=''>Blue link</a></t>


Default is 1.

<t size='2'> Large text</t>


Font are defined in CfgFontFamilies

<t font='Zeppelin33'>Bold Text</t>


Parameter can be 'left', 'center', 'right'

<t align='center'>Centered Text</t>


<t underline='true'>Underlined Text</t>


Parameter can be '0' (no shadow), '1' (classic shadow, can be colored), '2' outline (always black)

<t shadow='1'>Text with shadow</t>
<t shadow='1' shadowColor='#ff0000'>Text with red Shadow</t>

Since ["Arma 3","Arma3",125,126163,"Development"]

<a href=''>Google</a>
<a color='#0000FF' href=''>Arma 3</a>
<a underline='true' color='#0000FF' href=''>KK's&#160;blog</a>


All operator types values should be encapsulated with '', for example, the following will log an .rpt error "Unknown attribute .0" and only 2 would be taken into account:

<t size=2.0>Large text</t>

While the following is correct:

<t size='2.0'>Large text</t>

A non-break space, commonly known as &nbsp; shows as ? in structured text control. Use alternative which is:&#160;

<t size='2.0'>FIVE&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;SPACES</t>
