Form Editor - TextEdit - Field Help
The TextEdit - Field control is a multi-line text editor.
It allows the user to enter and edit the multiple lines of plain text with a useful collection of editing functions, including undo and redo, cut and paste, and drag and drop.
This control is bound to the table field and allows the user to edit its value. The current value of the text edit is taken right from the field and each change is applied immediately to the field.
- Data Mode – Defines how the control value change is applied to the field:
- Inherited – The mode is inherited from the parent form
- Add – The value is intended for a new record
- Edit – The value is assigned to the field, but not committed
- Edit And Commit – The value is assigned to the field and committed
- ReadOnly – The value can't be changed
- Filter – The value is used to filter data by the bound field, the filter must be applied manually using the applyFilters method.
- Filter And Accept – The value is used to filter data by the bound field, filter applied automatically.
- Name – The name of the control.

- Read-Only – Defines whether the control is editable or not.
- Auto Fill Background – This property holds whether the control background is filled automatically.
- Enabled – Defines whether the control is enabled or not.
- Font – This property holds the font currently set for the control. The default depends on the system environment.
- Palette – This property describes the control's palette.
The palette is used by the control's style when rendering. The color roles from this palette are combined with the control's default palette to form the control's final palette. The default depends on the system environment and may be different on different platforms. Control propagates explicit palette roles from parent to child. If you assign a brush or color to a specific role on a palette, that role will propagate to all the control's children, overriding any system defaults for that role.
