This is a very simple text entry field used for input/output.

The 'value' property is where you set a initialized value for the textbox. Whatever you place inside the 'value' will be present when the textbox is displayed.

Validation (Rich UI Only)

This section contains the properties for creating client side validation for textboxes.

Field Binding Dialog (Rich UI Only)

The textbox field is also able to have program fields bound to it.

Database-Driven Auto-Complete

This option allows the correct choices to be retrieved from a Database file.  Simply enter the name of the database file, the name of the choice option field, and the name of the choice value field.   The selection criteria can be used to filter the choices similar to an SQL WHERE clause.  Max choices will limit the number of choices returned.

There is no need to qualify the file name with the library name, although you can if required. Once the file name has been entered, the "..."  button in the choice options and choice value fields will open the dialog box shown below. This dialog lists all the fields in the specified file allowing easy selection of the correct field names.
