Topic: Text edit box

As currently more edit boxes exist, would be fine to get one for plugin/effects strings
i.e.: "effect_string_edit" or "effect_string 'popup'" opening a text editbox in a way being able to manually edit content instead of needing to create a temporary custom button with specific values
usefull for text display and filenames paste, ip addresses...

why not an invisible custom_button? pretty much the same thing, just one extra button press.

Depending on the plugin, perhaps variables are a solution too?
In that case you can use the new set_var_dialog

new "set_var_dialog" sound promising this is for sure a solution
Fine it displays the name of the variable ^^

I was not aware it ever exist
new features often silently appear or just one line in a changelog

thanks for it great addition ;)

EDIT: I didn't get it in mind, however I already added it in my own memo file & translation file ... sometime memory is playing

sure I saw it there (note says b6525)
There is a test in my custom_button for parameter passing & what can be done with it (working) :
get_text "note:\n \nxxxxxxx\nxxxxxxxx" & param_cast text & set_var_dialog test
making text appear in the "note" field with 4 lines
just forgot about it
