Having been chatting with @Sosasees, here:


I noticed that the icon to the left of the post looked like an oversized keyboard that wouldn't fit on the screen.

So it got me to thinking ...

While I was working on a type of room builder I quickly set that aside and began working on drawing big fat letters that might look perfect in a 24x24 field or 3x3 8x8-pixel sprites and use the 24x24 pixeled box I made.

Naturally it would be too big for the screen. So you would use the mouse to SCROLL for the keys.

And that is the result I have. Hold 🅾️ to hold down the SHIFT key.

Now I don't expect to do anything with this. You can't type with it. I haven't written code for that yet.

If you want to experiment move the mouse pointer so it touches every letter of your first and last name -

And yeah, you get a headache pretty quickly from scrolling all over the place ! :)

Yet I wanted to see if it was possible to do - to make an area so big as it would appear nice and legible on even the smallest of cellphones. Allowing you to drag your finger across and stab at a button to register it in your text entry.

If you found this amusing or have any questions about it, please let me know !

Thanks !
