Notepad for Roblox Studio


NOTEPAD PLUGIN

As you may have already realized, Notepad is a notepad for Roblox Studio where you can take notes about your experience or something else about development.

Why should i install the plugin?
There is no need to open the built-in Notepad app on your computer, just hit the “Open Notepad” button in the plugin section of Roblox Studio.

Get the plugin here: Notepad - Roblox

Special thanks to @HugeCoolboy2007 for helping me with :Setsetting()

Use plugin:SetSetting to save the information it’s really simple

Thank you for the info. I will update the plugin very soon.

That seems really nice, but could you consider some pictures please?

local toolbar = plugin:CreateToolbar("Notepad")

local button = toolbar:CreateButton("Open Notepad", "Notepad", "rbxassetid://10886215059")
local runBeforeKey = "RunBefore"
local hasrunbefore = plugin:GetSetting(runBeforeKey)

button.ClickableWhenViewportHidden = true
local opened = false

local widgetInfo = DockWidgetPluginGuiInfo.new(
	Enum.InitialDockState.Float,  
	true,
	false,
	200,    
	300,    
	150,    
	150     
)

local widget = plugin:CreateDockWidgetPluginGui("Notepad", widgetInfo)


button.Click:Connect(function()
	if hasrunbefore then
	if opened then
		widget.Title = "Notepad"
		local Box = Instance.new("TextBox")
		Box.BorderSizePixel = 0
		Box.TextSize = 20
		Box.TextColor3 = Color3.new(0.243137, 0.243137, 0.243137)
		Box.AnchorPoint = Vector2.new(0.5,0.5)
		Box.Size = UDim2.new(1,0,1,0)
		Box.Position = UDim2.new(0.5,0,0.5,0)
		Box.SizeConstraint = Enum.SizeConstraint.RelativeYY
		Box.Parent = widget
		Box.TextScaled = true
		widget.Enabled = false
			opened = false
	else
		widget.Title = "Notepad"
		local Box = Instance.new("TextBox")
		Box.BorderSizePixel = 0
		Box.TextSize = 20
		Box.TextColor3 = Color3.new(0.243137, 0.243137, 0.243137)
		Box.AnchorPoint = Vector2.new(0.5,0.5)
		Box.Size = UDim2.new(1,0,1,0)
		Box.Position = UDim2.new(0.5,0,0.5,0)
		Box.SizeConstraint = Enum.SizeConstraint.RelativeYY
		Box.Parent = widget
		Box.TextScaled = true
		opened = true
		widget.Enabled = true
		plugin:SetSetting(runBeforeKey, true)
	end
	end
	end)

Could you help me find the bug in this code? The text is not saved.

Pictures of what? The notepad’s widget?

Yes. Please

(limitttttttttttttttt)

I’ll try!

Summary

This text will be hidden

I made a few modifications to your plugin’s source code:

local toolbar = plugin:CreateToolbar("Notepad")
local button = toolbar:CreateButton("Open Notepad", "Notepad", "rbxassetid://10886215059")
button.ClickableWhenViewportHidden = true

local widgetInfo = DockWidgetPluginGuiInfo.new(Enum.InitialDockState.Float, false, false, 200, 300, 150, 150)
local widget = plugin:CreateDockWidgetPluginGui("Notepad", widgetInfo)
widget.Name = "Notepad" -- Set the widget's name to 'Notepad' for easy identification in the PluginGuiService
widget.Title = "Notepad"

local saveSettingKey = "notepad_save"

-- Create the box by default, you don't have to wait for the widget to be clicked
local Box = Instance.new("TextBox")
Box.BorderSizePixel = 0
Box.TextSize = 20
Box.TextColor3 = Color3.new(0.243137, 0.243137, 0.243137)
Box.AnchorPoint = Vector2.new(0.5, 0.5)
Box.Size = UDim2.new(1, 0, 1, 0)
Box.Position = UDim2.new(0.5, 0, 0.5, 0)
Box.SizeConstraint = Enum.SizeConstraint.RelativeYY
Box.ClearTextOnFocus = false -- So that user progress isn't erased when they click on the widget (textbox) again
Box.TextScaled = true
Box.TextXAlignment = Enum.TextXAlignment.Left
Box.TextYAlignment = Enum.TextYAlignment.Top
Box.Text = plugin:GetSetting(saveSettingKey) or "" -- Load the setting key or blank text
Box.Parent = widget

local function savecontent()
	plugin:SetSetting(saveSettingKey, Box.Text) -- Save the box's text
end

button.Click:Connect(function()
	-- No need for a variable, just set the Enabled state to opposite of its current state
	widget.Enabled = not widget.Enabled
	savecontent()
end)

widget:BindToClose(function()
	-- Disable widget when it's closed
	widget.Enabled = false
	savecontent()
end)

I guess @HugeCoolboy2007 solved your problem.
I think it would be better if you put the ui under the script however

Nice plugin but I feel like personally I rather just use a note pad on my laptop which is easy to get within 2 clicks.

This might solve the issue:

Press Win+R and then type in “notepad”. When you’re done, press CTRL+S and then type a name, then press enter. Optionally press Alt+F4 after saving (Or alt then x) to close the window.

I have already proposed this idea here: Notes plugin, saves your notes

It includes clean, studio-matching UI

Nice job though.
