Text Box Tool

Last modified: June 11, 2020

Use Text Box to display a free form text box in an app or macro. The user-entered value is passed to downstream tools.

Configure the Tool

  1. Enter the text or question to be displayed: Instructional text displayed to the end-user.
  2. Default Text: Optional. Enter the text displayed in the text box that the end-user can replace. If left blank, the end-user sees an empty text box to populate.
  3. Mask Text (for passwords): Optional. Select so the end-user will see * for every character they enter into the text box.
  4. Multiline: Optional. Select to allow users to enter multiple lines of text. The displayed text box is larger.
  5. Hide control (for API development): Optional. Select to hide the text box from the end-user, but allow the developer to inject values into the app execution via the API.
