New NVL Scrolling [solved]

#1 Post by saguaro » Wed May 03, 2017 8:11 am

I'm working with the new GUI NVL and having a hard time understanding how to display more than 6 lines. Could someone advise? I know this is something obvious I'm just not getting.

I *think* it's under screeny, NVL,

Code: Select all

## This controls the maximum number of NVL-mode entries that can be displayed at
## once.
define config.nvl_list_length = 6 #but you also have to adjust the textbox or it'll bleed out
the NVL textbox:

Code: Select all

style nvl_window:
    xfill True
    yfill True

    background "gui/nvl_custom.png" <-- the image you use as the text box
    padding gui.nvl_borders.padding
I'm not sure what else you'd have to fiddle with to get it to work
