The Textbox control in the Pane Designer inserts a box in which a text can be entered.

Drag the textbox to the desired place in the pane, as demonstrated below:

The following properties can be changed for the Textbox control:

Common Properties

After adding the textbox to the plane, configure the settings in the Common Properties right panel, shown below:

The following settings are available for a selection pane textbox:

SettingDescriptionExample

Control Tag

Identifies the control and reads it's value when used in a form or report.

CF_GETPANELVALUE("VERSION")

Label Text

Describes what the control is used for.

 

Tooltip

Provides extra information to the user by moving their mouse over the control.

A $-variable can be used to display dynamic system information. Enter a $ sign to view available variables. For more information, see Pane $ Variables.

Get Latest Value

When enabled, populates the control with the latest selected value from user (ON/OFF).

 

Enabled

Determines if the control should be enabled or disabled (ON/OFF). Control can also be enabled/disabled depending on the state of another checkbox control.

 

Hidden

When enabled, control will not be visible for users (ON/OFF).

 
MandatoryWhen enabled, user must select a value before the selection pane open button is unlocked (ON/OFF). 

Validation

On valid input, displays a validation message until user complies with validation rule.

Use a regular expression.

Message

Displays a message that will be shown if input differs from validation rule.

 
Text

Press $ to view existing $variables to use in the text field, or enter a fixed text.

Note: This box displays a fixed text. Therefore, it is not recommended to enter a help text in the Text field, since it will then be sent in to the pane worksheet in the template (presupposed that the user forgets to enter a valid value in the text box). Instead, add help text by using a label and placing it to the right in the text box.

A $-variable can be used to display dynamic system information. Enter a $ sign to view available variables. For more information, see Pane $ Variables.
