@blockly/field-multilineinput Built on Blockly

A Blockly multilineinput field and associated block.

Installation

Yarn

yarn add @blockly/field-multilineinput

npm

npm install @blockly/field-multilineinput --save

Usage

Field

This field accepts up to 3 parameters:

  • "text" to specify the default text. Defaults to "".
  • "maxLines" to specify the maximum number of lines displayed before scrolling functionality is enabled. Defaults to Infinity.
  • "spellcheck" to specify whether spell checking is enabled. Defaults to true.

The multiline input field is a subclass of Blockly.FieldInput

If you want to use only the field, you must register it with Blockly. You can do this by calling registerFieldMultilineInput before instantiating your blocks. If another field is registered under the same name, this field will overwrite it.

JavaScript

import * as Blockly from 'blockly';
import {registerFieldMultilineInput} from '@blockly/field-multilineinput';

registerFieldMultilineInput();
Blockly.Blocks['test_field_multilineinput'] = {
  init: function () {
    this.appendDummyInput()
      .appendField('multilineinput: ')
      .appendField(
        new FieldMultilineInput('some text \n with newlines'),
        'FIELDNAME',
      );
  },
};

JSON

import * as Blockly from 'blockly';
import {registerFieldMultilineInput} from '@blockly/field-multilineinput';

registerFieldMultilineInput();
Blockly.defineBlocksWithJsonArray([
    {
        "type": "test_field_multilineinput",
        "message0": "multilineinput: %1",
        "args0": [
            {
                "type": "field_multilineinput",
                "name": "FIELDNAME",
                "text": "some text \n with newlines"
            }
    }]);

Blocks

This package also provides a simple block containing a multiline input field. It has generators in JavaScript, Python, PHP, Lua, and Dart.

You can install the block by calling textMultiline.installBlock(). This will install the block and all of its dependencies, including the multiline input field. When calling installBlock you can supply one or more CodeGenerator instances (e.g. javascriptGenerator), and the install function will also install the correct generator function for the corresponding language(s).

import {javascriptGenerator} from 'blockly/javascript';
import {dartGenerator} from 'blockly/dart';
import {phpGenerator} from 'blockly/php';
import {pythonGenerator} from 'blockly/python';
import {luaGenerator} from 'blockly/lua';
import {textMultiline} from '@blockly/field-multilineinput';

// Installs the block, the field, and all of the language generators.
textMultiline.installBlock({
  javascript: javascriptGenerator,
  dart: dartGenerator,
  lua: luaGenerator,
  python: pythonGenerator,
  php: phpGenerator,
});
