Bump for #1. Has anyone made a text entry where the text is centered vertically? My only solution is to have the text entry have no background and draw my own offset background around it to manually make the text centered, which is less than ideal...

In response to #2, I'm not sure exactly what you were asking. If you mean get the text from inside the control, that's handled, like Oli said, by:

void TextFromTextEntry(const char* txt){}

If you mean how do you access the text from outside the control, you'd probably want to copy the text to an internal variable and write a GetText() method. Something like this:

char * storedText = "";
void TextFromTextEntry(const char* txt){

   //do something with the text
   storedText = txt;


char * GetText(){ return storedText; }
Then somewhere else you'd get it like this:
char * txt = pControl -> GetText();
