How do i make a bitmap text input field?

Does someone know a great tutorial, plugin or example for having the player input text, but with a bitmap font?

Doesn’t have to be multiline.
Just typing and backspace.
copy paste would be nice to have but not necessary
same with selecting text
or using arrow keys

If you have other UX ideas you can do with text, i’d also like to hear, for when i will try to build it myself…

how about just catching the keycodes and rendering the corresponding bitmap font character in an area, e.g. GameObject

See anyKey() in http://labs.phaser.io/edit.html?src=src/input/keyboard/retro%20leaderboard.js&v=3.55.2.

Thanks for the ideas, @Lupo and @samme :slight_smile:

Maybe a good idea to make it a little retro keyboard instead of a boring textfield, so it is also useful with gamepads.
