Text Entry Boxes

An entry box is basically a small, one line, text window. All of the same editing commands exist, although many are redundant for such a small window.


A typical entry box can be seen in the Gap4 dialogue for opening new databases. Here the ringed region to the right of the "Enter new filename" text is the entry box. The current contents of this entry is "file". The vertical black line visible is the text entry point.
