TEXTAREA

Guide Section: GUI of an EASAP | EASAP Tree: USER INTERFACE Branch


A TEXTAREA has two functions:

  • display messages on the user interface
  • accept user input text (similar to TEXTBOX).

TEXTAREA provides readily available help to a User reducing the need for an EASAP’s own Help pages. Below is an example giving technical information to a User about the other GUI input elements.
