Inherited By: CodeEdit

A multiline text editor.

Description

A multiline text editor. It also has limited facilities for editing code, such as syntax highlighting support. For more advanced facilities for editing code, see CodeEdit.

Note: Most viewport, caret and edit methods contain a caret_index argument for caret_multiple support. The argument should be one of the following: -1 for all carets, 0 for the main caret, or greater than 0 for secondary carets.

Note: When holding down Alt, the vertical scroll wheel will scroll 5 times as fast as it would normally do. This also works in the Godot script editor.
