The Text Dialog is used by many fields to display and edit values. For example, clicking the left mouse button on the Publisher Name field, found in a document's Reference Chapter, will activate the dialog.
The dialog contains a Save button, a Cancel button, a value edit control and sometimes a List button:
|Datum Control: displays and enables editing of the physical property's value. Typically, because the physical property value is a string, very little if any verification is done of the entered value.
List Button: when displayed, the List button
compiles a list of suggestions. For example, pressing
the List button on the Text dialog used to edit a
Reference's Publisher Name property, would compile and
display all publishers found in the current knowledge
Date Control: inserts the current date and
time into the Comments Control. These values are
inserted at the cursor's current position. Pressing
the dialog's Date button displays a menu giving you
the option of selecting from different date + time
|Save Button: stores the entered values into the current document.
Clicking the right mouse button within the dialog's edit control will display the edit control's commands menu.
