HTML editor

An HTML editor object inserts a standard text editor into your screen. For more information on HTML editors, take a look at our  documentation on the topic.


  • Caption: What is your control called?  Name it here!
  • Hide Caption: If you’re just labeling your control for your own information but don’t want the text to show in the live screen, check this box.
  • Load State: When the screen loads, what happens to the control?  Is it clickable?  Then it’s Regular.  Disabled?  It’s there but you can’t use it (it’s greyed-out).  Or, if you prefer, you could make the control Hidden in the live screen.
  • Default Value: This is the text that initially appears inside the input box.
  • Height: The initial eight of the input box. May be specified in pixels (px) or a percentage (%) of the section/cell it is in.
  • Hide Status bar: The text editor has a status bar at the bottom of it that is defaulted to hidden, but you can unhide it if you want to.
  • Width: How wide should your control be in relation to the screen?  Auto means it’ll be the width of the text or icon, Fixed lets you assign a width in pixels, and Full will make it the full width of the section or cell it has been dragged into.


  • Background color: Set the background color of this control from the preset Method palette.
  • Caption theme color/size/text alignment: Choose the color, size, and alignment of the text in your caption.
  • Border size/color/style: Change the size, color and style of your border.
