I need a text editor written with text draw calls
I am using wxPython (wxWindows) and need a simple non-styled text control
with an arbitrary image background. Since wx does not support transparent
colored backgrounds on controls, I'm being forced to use a simple pane with
a bitmap loaded and write the text directly over the bitmap with text
Does anyone know of any existing python code that implements the logic of a
text control with direct calls to painting text on any canvas? I am not
looking forward to writing this from scratch in this day and age.
I toyed around for a while with the idea of implementing an off-screen
control to a memory buffer and then converting the background color to a
mask to blit onscreen, but then I realized controls only work onscreen.
Then I thought of trying to use printing, but then found out controls can't
go to a printer. Somebody somewhere in control heaven made the decision
that controls would be forever only present on monitors with opaque
backgrounds. Talk about an assumed design decision somewhere...
