Textbox (DX11)

module dx11 GUI text
Credits: Requires DX11 pack by the talented Mr. Vux

about

I found DX11 text a bit hard to wrangle when making GUIs because text will resize when the renderer resizes.
So I made this hacky patch that undoes all of the text nodes internal logic and makes text live inside a quad transform regardless of renderer size or quad shape.

Now spreadable!
TransX bug fixed

Free/Open Source/Go Crazy
Made with DX11 v1.01 x64
and vvvv50beta35.2_x64

Limitations:
It works best in single line mode with short strings. There is a multi line mode but it's a bit unpredictable and will sometimes break its bounds.

look at TextBlock (DX11) in mp.dx, it has similar stuff for quite some time now albeit it is not really advertised so well what's inside it.

@microdee I will check it out. I did do some initial searching for something similar before I made this but missed your contrib. Ah well, an educational exercise at least.
