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

Tool Configuration

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. 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.
