- Starting the HTML Editor
/pages/Server/Guide/Design/View/Html/Starting the HTML Editor.xml
You can prepare HTML pages with any ASCII editor. You simply need access to the underlying HTML code. However, most developers will find the embedded HTML Editor a very convenient tool.
- The Code Editor
/pages/Guides/Xbasic/The Code Editor.xml
You write Xbasic scripts in the Code Editor. The Code Editor is a multi-tabbed window that allows you to edit multiple scripts at the same time. The Code Editor always includes at least one tab called the Interactive window where you can test individual lines of Xbasic code and see immediate results. For more information on using the Interactive window, see Testing Xbasic Statements in the Interactive Window.
- The Code Editor Control
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/The Code Editor Control.xml
You can turn a standard text box control into a Xbasic Code Editor using the %L% formatting code. You should define column and row dimensions for the text box that are large enough to display a reasonable size code editor.

- Using the Xbasic Window
/pages/Guides/Xbasic/Using the Xbasic Window.xml
By default, the Xbasic window shows the Raw Xbasic code for the operation. Raw Xbasic means the code shown is the exact code for the currently defined operation. It's a direct translation of what's in your Operation Card.
The Raw Xbasic view is great for seeing what's going on behind-the-scenes when you are creating an Operation, but Raw Xbasic has little meaning outside the Operation Card. That's where the Processed Xbasic view comes in.
Using the radio buttons, you can switch the view between Raw Xbasic, Processed Xbasic, and Processed without Confirmation dialogs.
