Interesting enough, when I try to use this method on the main grid, I get a dialog with a button that says !!llTextBox!! - I wonder if it will be possible to combine buttons with a text box in the future on dialog controls. --Dedric Mauriac 01:34, 28 August 2008 (PDT)

Has anybody ever seen this work properly?

I have looked back in at this function in the hope that I can use it a few times but to no avail. As I understand it with this function we can produce a kind of form to be filled out and returned by the key user. But all I have ever seen is the !!TextBox!! button. So I just wondered if anyone had ever seen the real text box and where? -- Eddy (talk|contribs) 05:34, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

And yes I can read. But in fact the pre-release warning reads to me like it does work somewhere and so would like to see it for my self. Ramzi Linden commented when he added the pre-release warning that it is literally pre-release. Surely the warning should read that way too. Anyway, if anyone does know where one might go to see it working could they leave the address? Thanks. -- Eddy (talk|contribs) 05:43, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
I remember seeing it mentioned in some branch of the viewer source but I couldn't tell you which. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 11:02, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh god! Not source code again? I'm going to have to learn more stuff aren't I? (rhetorical) -- Eddy (talk|contribs) 17:55, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

nah, I just take a peak at the changes to see if there is anything interesting coming down the pipe... sometimes I catch errors. -- Strife (talk|contribs) 11:30, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

I second your "nah" but with the opposite intention. Baring in mind the whole jump jira thing I clearly do need to learn more about programming. What is interesting is that as I learn more about the finer points of lsl I realize that the wiki info I have had trouble understanding is hard because I didn't know any other language before I started lsl. Perhaps something to bare in mind when editing this wiki. When I was looking at scope in variables I found a few references to C and since I don't know C the references were useless. So not only must I learn C/C++ but ask that where possible this wiki can be written with non programmers in mind (a little more) since I now realize why some of it still reads like gibberish. -- Eddy (talk|contribs) 12:24, 3 August 2009 (UTC)


Using Emerald and Second Life Server this seems to function. Interesting note: the magic token TEXTBOX_MAGIC_TOKEN (aka "!!llTextBox!!") if sent as the first button in a dialog will cause the dialog to come up as a text box, just as llTextBox() sends, losing the rest of the buttons. If it is sent as any other button, it will act as a normal dialog box. Saddly this means no combo-boxes. WhiteFire Sondergaard 02:34, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
