Super simple demonstration of a text buffer (text box) in openFrameworks

Very simple text input.

* Range of standard ascii input keys
* left,right to move cursor
* delete,backspace

Does not support:
* mouse select
* shift select
* clipboard
* up,down key navigation

Generally for simple tasks like when you want to save something with a filename (suggest changing the behavious of OF_KEY_RETURN to save)

There are 2 branches on the github:
* very simple - not object oriented. Chop and change as you like
* ofx style - in a seperate class, but still suggest you chop and change as you like.

Since i presume most people will be changing the code to their own needs, i'm not suggesting that this is a real ofx extension, but instead some code that you can start with and hack with.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
