I've come to understand that Intuition, the GUI framework on the stock A500 has 4 types of gadgets:

  1. 'boolean' - checkboxes and buttons
  2. 'Proportional' - sliders
  3. string inputs
  4. integer inputs

I'm looking for a multi line string output so that i can render a paper tape from a calculator app I'm building.

Failing that, is there a 3rd party library that enriches the available set of gadgets?

    Couldn't you use the base Gadget "class", which is able to render a linked list of text "objects" relative to the top left of the containing Gadget?

  • @BrianH, that should probably be an answer, not a comment

  • There’s no built-in and the 1.3 gadgets were not extensible in the way, AOS2.0 introduced. You can use the console.device, which supports being limited to a rectangular region of a window, so it would cooperate with other gadgets (but only one console per window, afaik).
