Creating an input box

To create a text box, simply fill out the form shown below. As an example, see the image shown below.

To create an input box, provide text box description, name, default value, characters width and maximum characters to fit in the text box.

From this example, we want to:

  • label our text box as "First Name",
  • use the name "FName" to identify this text box from other text boxes or fields inside a form,
  • use the default value as "John",
  • create the text with size of the text box set to "22", and
  • allow up to 20 characters (maximum characters user can type) in the text box.

The following shows the output of such text box:
