View Full Version : Terminal-Like View

Jul 13, 2010, 06:23 AM
I have a new concept for an APP..
All of the code I already have, but I need to work on the interface,
Anyone here know how I make my program look exactly like the terminal?
I want such a background will be black, the text will be white colored and computer-like font.
I need that the user can write information and stuff as usual ..
Anyone know how you can build such a thing?
Thanks in advance, Tal.

What have you already tried?

Using UITextView or maybe UIWebView would seem to be the way to create a view with scrolling text. If those don't work then I think you have to write your own UIView subclass that does this.

Do you require that the user can type into the view? Maybe UITextView can do this but I think you'll need a custom view.

You could use NSString's drawAtPoint to draw any color, size, font text anywhere on the display. Just start with a your choice of color filled rectangle.
