Numeric input for custom gumball

I have been looking if it is possible to have numeric input via text on a custom gumball we have developed. Our users would like to input precise values when using the gumball. I have checked the API but it does not seem to be supported. I am missing something?

Thanks a lot,

Hi @Alberto,

The gumball provided by the SDK does not have built-in numeric input by way of a popup edit control. If this is something you want, you’ll need to implement it yourself.

– Dale

That is a bummer @dale. It will require quite more work that I expected :expressionless:

If I got the time will post here the code once I do it


Hi @Alberto and @Dale, I read this old post just now.
I have the same problem.
@Dale, the last version of Rhino SDK have the built-in numeric input for the Gumball?
If not @Alberto did you find a solution to have your own numeric input
thank you

We worked it around with some UI, not the best solution. I do not think that anything was added in the meantime to the SDK, maybe in 8

Hi @Alberto, thank you for the info.
