Re: Expandable text entry widget

So, here's the suggestion : on a one line text entry, instead of cutting

scroll it, automatically make the text entry one line higher and show
all the text.

   its called a GtkTextView, normally its placed inside a scrolled window
so you don't get to notice its magical resizing super-powers :)

On a similar note - the GtkEntry widget seems to have the startling capacity
to assume the proper height for text... would it be very difficult to say
that an entry or a textview is "n" lines high ? (I want a 3 line high editable
textview regardless of the font size)... maybe I'm missing something that
already exists - via some obscure pango layout codepath or something...
asides from that - I'll stop trailing off topic on gtk-devel ;-p
