Example 

This script creates a multi-line text box.

dim help_text as C
help_text = "This is sample" + crlf()+ "help text to appear" + crlf()+ "in a read-only multi-line text box."
ui_modeless_dlg_box("Read-only Multi-line Text Box",<<%dlg%
{font=Verdana,10};
[%m%.50,5help_text];
;
;
%dlg%,<<%code%
if (a_dlg_button = "OK") then
    ui_modeless_dlg_close("Read-only Multi-line Text Box")
end if
%code%)

This script combines the M, W, and R directives to create a multi-line, word-wrapped, read-only text box.

dim help_text as C
help_text = "This is sample help text to appear in a read-only multi-line text box."
ui_modeless_dlg_box("Read-only Multi-line Text Box",<<%dlg%
{font=Verdana,10};
[%mwr%.50,5help_text];
;
;
%dlg%,<<%code%
if (a_dlg_button = "OK") then
    ui_modeless_dlg_close("Read-only Multi-line Text Box")
end if
%code%)
