Text Box Tool

The Text Box tool displays a free form text box in an app or macro. The user entered value will be passed to downstream tools.

Configuration Properties

  1. Enter the text or question to be displayed: The text here will be presented to the user instructing them how to use the Text control.

  2. Specify the Default Text: This optional parameter will display the text entered here, but allow the user to type their own text in its place. Left blank, the user will see an empty text box to populate.

  3. Mask Text (for passwords): (Optional) When checked, the user will not see the text they enter. Instead the box will be populated with * for every character they type.

  4. Multiline: (Optional) When checked, the text box displayed to the user will support multiple lines of text and the text box will display larger.

  5. Hide control (for API development): (Optional) When checked, the text box will not appear in the app interface to the user but will be available to the developer to inject values into the app execution via the API.
