Description

The TextInputDialog class is used to display native text input dialogs with one text edit field, one button (as cancel button) and two optional buttons. When the user presses any buttons in the alert dialog, it is dismissed and TextInputDialog_Event.COMPLETE event is dispatched.

If text input dialog is dismissed by any other means (by pressing back button on Android or by pressing close button on desktop), it behaves as cancel button is pressed.

Example

local textInputDialog = TextInputDialog.new("my title", "my message", "some text", "Cancel", "OK")

local function onComplete(event)
	print(event.text, event.buttonIndex, event.buttonText)
end

textInputDialog:addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onComplete)
textInputDialog:show()
