    They're working on it. Top priorities are converting existing HUD elements, though.

    started a topic DOTACanvas


    Dear Valve,

    One feature I'm missing in Panorama in particular from scaleform is the ability to use actionscript 3's Graphics class, which basically let's you draw at runtime. Html has something similar called a canvas. Now I have found the <DOTACanvas> element in multiple of your vxml files, which gives me hope of an element like the html canvas. The problem is that there is no indication of actual drawing functions on this element, and also no examples can be found in the vpk. Therefore this element either does not expose its functionality to Panorama JS or I can just not find out how to use it. I'm requesting this functionality if it is not available to us yet, or if it is some documentation on how to use it.

    Please consider this, I'm sure a lot of mod-creators would benefit from it.
