Menu where user can type in float value?

My Digital Sequencer module offers different output ranges for users to select in the right-click menu. For example:

  • 0v to 10v.
  • -5v to 5v
  • 0v to 5v
  • 0v to 1v
  • Etcetera

In addition to this, is it possible to let users type in specific values in a right-click menu item? If so, could someone explain the code required to pull that off?


You need to override setDisplayValueString in your Param Quantity.

You can find some examples here: SquinkyVCV/CompressorTooltips.h at main · squinkylabs/SquinkyVCV · GitHub

Also, I think I saw an example on this forum yesterday.

Anyway, the idea is that you get passed a string, and you need to turn it into a float value. It can be any string that you let people type in.
