I need to receive a long text input from the user for the purpose of composing a custom SMS.
I would like to enjoy all the advantages of a normal form field, specifically the ability of the user to change language and add symbols. This works well on form fields, but the problem is that if I use Form object with a text field - it is limitted to 80 characters. I need to allow input of up to 1600 characters.
Is there an API in pys60 or an extension / module I can install to provide such a text editor without writing it myself?
PS - I saw some applications such as Gmail and Opera, in which when you need to enter text (compose Email/search) they give you a standard text input of the phone with all the above available and working. I need to do the same in Python (Pys60) but could not find any way to do so with the available API. I don't know if the above applications are written in Python, but maybe Python has a similar API OR a way to invoke this editor using some bridge to the C++ API.
