The question says it all to be honest. I have a game that I am making in Ogre3D, using OIS as the main input library. My issue is that I am attempting to use CEGUI (with tons of errors) all to simply attempt making a string for my upcoming textbox class. The textbox graphics and font are already taken care of (by other classes), but what I need is the text from the keyboard to make this all happen (and this implementation seems way to difficult being such a commonplace thing to have in any program...).

My closest attempt with making a string to simulate that is as follows:

class CustomKeyListener: public OIS::KeyListener{
        using namespace OIS;
        std::string mString;
        bool keyPressed(const KeyEvent &arg){
            CEGUI::GUIContext& context = CEGUI::System::getSingleton().getDefaultGUIContext();
            return true;
        bool keyReleased(const KeyEvent &arg){
            return true;

As stated in the code, I want mString to be the containing text, and the textbox class (not made yet) will pull that string out and use it for whatever purposes. I would also like the idea of not having CEGUI included in the example if unneccesary (since it doesn't even take input, but gave me over a hundred errors upon adding to the program...)
