After inserting a text field, you can set it to display content on a single line, on multiple lines, or display password content. This, and other settings can be done with the Text Field Properties panel.

Text Field Properties

The Text Field Properties panel is displayed when you select (click on) a text field inserted in your page. It corresponds to the <INPUT> tag in the Tag Selector:


To configure this panel, follow the instructions below:

  1. In the Element ID text box enter the value for the id attribute. It will uniquely identify the element (text field) in page.

  2. In the Char Width text box set the maximum number of characters that can be displayed at one time in the text field (if it only has one row). If it is a multi-line text field, this number represents the width of the form control given in characters.

  3. In the Max Chars text box set the maximum number of characters that can be entered in the (single-line) text field.

  4. From the Type drop-down menu select a type for the current text field:

  5. In the Init Val text box enter the value that should be displayed in the text field when the form loads by default.
