Text Box + Directive




Defines a Text Box with auto advance. 


The + directive defines a Text Box with auto advance. An auto-advance field is one where the cursor will jump to the next field when the current field is full. To enable auto-advance, you must specify the maximum characters of a field, and you must specify '+' in the field's format string.


In the example below, the State field (for example), has a display width of 4 characters, but a maximum allowed entry of 2 characters. The format string is always enclosed in % signs.

State: |[%+%2.4state];
Phone: |[%+%3.4areaCode]-[%+%3.4Exchange]-[%+%4.5Number];
Name: |[.40name];
