Form Editor - TextEdit - Field

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.
