Hey all, I've been trying to create a Text Box for users to type in, in DirectX 8.1, but I could not find the class for it. All I can find is the Edit Box. So right now, I'm creating a 9 line Text Box from 9 separate Edit Boxes. Any chance this can work, because I'm already running into problems when handling new line, backspace, delete and insert keyboard characters. Tracking the text cursor is also another problem. Anyone has some idea on how to create Text Boxes other than the method that I am resorting to?

Yes I am using direct 3d but i cant' locate the class for a Textbox.

I will be using it for in game chatting or messaging, so i need it to be multiline. The Editbox does not enable me to do multiline, that's why i'm trying to search for a Textbox in Direct 3d 8.1.
