The Text Field component is used for input of any single-line text. This component will accept any alpha-numeric input.
The Text Field component properties have impact on the way a user can interact with a table in the runtime.
When the enabled property is set to true, a user can edit the text field in the runtime. The user must double click on the field or press enter in order to edit the field. When done, press enter or leave the field, and the text field becomes non-editable again.
When the enabled property is set to false, it is not editable even when it receives input focus.
|General||The Text Field also supports the reject updates during edit feature. This feature ignores updates coming from property bindings while the component is being edited by a user.|
|text||Text to display.||value: string|
|placeholder||Text displayed when Text Field is empty.||value: string|
If true, user is allowed to alter text.
When true, updates to props.text will be deferred until focus is lost or enter is pressed.
When true, props.text will not accept updates from external sources while focused.
The Perspective Event Types Reference page describes all the possible component event types for Perspective components. Not all component events support each Perspective component. The Component Events and Actions page shows how to configure events and actions on a Perspective component. Component scripting is handled separately and can be accessed from the Component menubar or by right clicking on the component.
This example shows the Text Field in two states: the top image is with text entered and the bottom image is without text entered.
