[Extension][2.0.61] Widgets Extension (GUI)


The Widgets Extension provides widgets (graphical interface elements).
For the moment, it only provides a text box object.

The text box object has several features :

  • Fully customizable colors
  • Ability to select the text inside the text box
  • Placeholder and hiding character

Known bugs :

  • After the game compilation, you need to manually copy WidgetsCore.dll (Windows) or WidgetsCore.so (Linux) of the folder CppPlatform/Extensions/Runtime into the compiled game folder.
  • On Linux : Text can’t be entered in the text box object during a preview
  • On Windows : Text can’t be entered in the text box object during a normal preview, but the bug disappears if you launch the preview in another window.

Any plan on expanding and updating this?


Please do not bump a decade old thread.

GDevelop 5 only came out around 2018 and was a complete rebuild of the engine. This would be for a much older version and not be compatible.
