 +====== Dialogs ======

 +{{:​create_your_first_cartridge:​dialog_media.jpg|}}
 +
 +The Dialog offers as many text fields as you might need. Use Dialogs when you have a larger portion of text that you prefer to present in digestible chunks. The Dialog also offers you the opportunity to change the media for each individual text portion. ​
 +
 +The name Dialog is somewhat misleading. This object should be used to present longer text information. There is no specific dialog quality to the object. A nice way to create a virtual dialog is presented [[create_your_first_cartridge#​Simulating_Interaction_(Dialog)|here]].
 +
 +[[tips_and_tricks#​Long_Text_(Strings_>​_850_characters)|Text >850 characters]] might actually crash your cartridge, [[tips_and_tricks#​Long_Text_(Strings_>​_850_characters)|read this FAQ]] for details. ​
 +
 +The disadvantage of Dialogs is that they do not offer any buttons (and no events). ​
